This is a great magazine and they have picked our image of Messier 51.  You’ll find our picture in issue 3, page 82.  The image was taken at f#6.3 on the Celestron Nexstar 11 GPS reflector as a single frame using the SXV-H9C one-shot colour camera.  This was only 20 minutes total exposure using 200 second subs.

Starizona image of the Month – Awesome!  They picked our image of NGC7000 and the Pelican nebula which is a 5-frame Hyperstar mosaic.

Out of interest: Starizona manufacture and sell the Hyperstar lens assemblies for the Celestron Nexstar Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.
