Handled the old data slightly differently in this Registar composite reprocess.
Here is a 4-frame mosaic of the Pleiades taken with the original Hyperstar lens assembly (on a C11) with a tiny little H9C one-shot colour camera. Also happens to be one of my all-time favourite images.
Here is a wide-field composite image of M78 and its relation to Barnard’s Loop taken using both Sky90 and Hyperstar I data.
Another deep-sky image from the NFO archives, and another original Hyperstar/H9C composition. This time the Cave nebula in Cepheus. I recall the tracking was so good on this one that I actually got some vertical banding where the tracking error … Continue reading
Another old image from the New Forest Observatory taken with the original Hyperstar and a little SXV H9C one-shot colour camera (1.4 megapixels only!). The camera was highly sensitive and I regret selling it when I bought the APS-sized chip … Continue reading
Another image using the original Hyperstar and the little H9C one-shot colour camera. Pretty deep for just 2.5 hours total exposure time – shows the speed of the Hyperstar lens 🙂
I just came across a load of very old imaging files taken using the original Hyperstar (no collimation screws) and a tiny little H9C one-shot colour CCD (1.4 Megapixels from memory). Did a pretty good job all told, and this … Continue reading
I came across this print of M42 while looking through some old notes. Print you note – not data – the data has long gone. So why a print? Because when this first came out of the Hyperstar I and … Continue reading
Here is the second marathon processing session by Noel. This time it’s the Belt region of Orion.
Taken over several years this image is a composite of Hyperstar I, Sky 90 and Hyperstar III data.
