There is a bright Moon overhead and tons of thin high cloud – no good for imaging but perfect for getting the Hyperstar tuned up again 🙂  Managed to focus train and collimate the Hyperstar to better than ever before in under an hour – now that is a record!  Perfect stars corner to corner, superb collimation, and I’m now doing a spot of ultra-fast f#2 imaging (with dither) just to fine check the system and give the stars a good analysis tomorrow.  The image won’t be top rate (due to the Moon) but at least I’ll be all ready for the next clear Moonless night.  Hyperstar rools.  And I now have a sticky note on the rig to the effect that the Hyperstar does not come off again – ever 🙂
