Yes, another great bit of work from you :)

I see you use a mono camera. Do you have to remove the camera to change filters, or have you found another method?

Cheers

I am happy that u all like it.

Rob, i have put between the hyperstar and the ATIK CCD a manual filter changer. Its very thin and its the only way to do it. I am lucky that i could focus the whole system.

Hello Antony,

Any chance of you posting an image of the hyperstar/filter wheel setup?

Using a mono camera with the hyperstar is giving you great results :)

Cheers
