Here is the recent Hyperstar 4 image of supernova SN2022hrs together with an old 200mm lens shot of the same region (at much lower resolution unfortunately).
A clear Moonless sky last night and I was just going to sort out the final Sky90 on the array, which is a bit boring with good skies. So it was very fortunate that I saw there was a new … Continue reading
Last night I got another 17 x 9-minute subs on the Hyperstar 4 on the Markarian Chain region, and I added this to the 32 x 4-minute subs I collected a couple of nights earlier. The image has improved a … Continue reading
This is a composite Sky90/M25C and Hyperstar 4/2600MC-Pro image of the Markarian Chain region. The Sky90/M25C data is 8-hours in total, and the Hyperstar 4/2600MC-Pro data is 32 x 4-minute subs taken last night. There’s 2 asteroids in the image … Continue reading
Got out for some Hyperstar 4 imaging last night, started at 11 p.m. and wound up at 2 a.m. Managed to get 32 x 4-minute subs on the Markarian Chain region under damp, poor visibility skies.
Last night I got 12 x 5-minute subs on the Leo Trio using the Hyperstar 4 and ASI 2600MC-Pro CMOS camera. I added this data to previous HS4 & HSIII data and the above is the result. Pretty disappointing not … Continue reading
Managed to get 28 x 150-second subs on M44 last night using the Hyperstar 4 and ASI2600MC-Pro CMOS camera. Collimation was pretty good during this run.
This is a composite image of the Leo Trio using old HS3 data and very recent HS4 data. Still not showing the tidal tail so plenty more work needs to be done on this one.
Here is a composite image of M78 and the edge of Barnard’s Loop (off to the left). This is old Sky90 data combined with very recent Hyperstar4 data.
