Composite Rosette nebula
This image is a composite of Sky90 and Hyperstar 4 data only.
The Heart of the Rose
This is the central region of the Rosette nebula. This is a composite image created using RegiStar and comprises original Hyperstar, Sky90 and Hyperstar 4 data exceeding 15-hours of total exposure time.
The Triangulum Galaxy – Messier 33 – Noel Carboni Process
This is an image of the Triangulum Galaxy – Messier 33 – and it has been a little while in the making. This image is a composite of data taken with the Sky90 refractor and M26C OSC CCD, the Hyperstar … Continue reading
Star reduced Rosette nebula
This is only 10 x 3-minute subs on the Hyperstar 4 with the C11 and 2600MC Pro CMOS OSC camera – but application of the star reducer program really makes it pop.
A Less Busy M31 – Andromeda Galaxy
Russ Croman’s StarXterminator can be used to create a separate “stars only” layer in Photoshop. You can then process the stars only layer to greatly reduce the impact of the stars, and then reintroduce this layer back into the original … Continue reading

This is only 27 x 3-minute subs on the Hyperstar 4 (on a C11) with an ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS camera – image taken last year. So what am I going to do this year? Well the image shows that … Continue reading
I did a quick reprocess of the composite Hyperstar 4 M31 image. This is 85 x 3-minute subs from 2 imaging sessions using the Hyperstar 4 and the ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS camera.
Hyperstar 4 Image of M31
I found some Hyperstar 4/M31 data from 2021-10-11 comprising 33 x 3-minute subs – so I added this to the 52 x 3-minute subs taken on 22-08-25 to get the result above. So now a total of 85 x 3-minute … Continue reading
The Markarian Chain and IC3355
I made a composite image out of 2 lots of data of the Markarian Chain region taken using the Hyperstar 4 on a C11 with an ASI 2600MC Pro CMOS camera. This composite gives a total imaging time of 4.7 … Continue reading
