After a minor glitch that was quickly sorted out by Dean of Starizona (thank you Dean!  and moral of the story – DO NOT attempt anything even remotely complicated if you’re suffering from jet-lag!!!) the Hyperstar, M25C and 2″ Hutech IDAS LP filter are all fitted to the C11.  Forgot to mention in the last post yet another bonus for the new V3 Hyperstar for the C11, it can accommodate a standard 2″ filter!  This is REALLY useful and will open up a whole new world for narrowband imaging with a big, high resolution monochrome camera.

Well – it is now likely to rain for the next 6 months of course, but the second I see a clear patch of night sky it will be first light for the new Hyperstar 🙂
