NGC3631 with the Hyperstar III and Trius 814C OSC CCD

Last night’s effort with the Hyperstar. Only 13 x 5-minute subs so still pretty noisy unfortunately. This is the NGC3631 region with a huge pile of faint fuzzies at the top (North).

Only 13 x 5-minute subs on the Hyperstar III on the C11 with the Trius 814C OSC CCD, so quite noisy. Arp214 and friends in Ursa Major.

M51 and galaxy friends

Managed to get out last night with a clear, Moonless night, but lots of water vapour. Grabbed 20 x 5-minute subs with the Hyperstar III on a C11 with the Trius 814C OSC CCD. Also added a similar amount of … Continue reading

Supernova SN 2020 fqv in the Siamese Twins

Getting a bit faint now, supernova SN 2020 fqv in the Siamese Twins (a galaxy pair in Virgo), imaged last night using the HyperstarIII on the C11 using the Trius 814C OSC CCD and 19 x 300-second subs. At least … Continue reading

Last night’s effort. 20 x 10-minute subs using the Hyperstar III on a C11 with a Trius 814C and Lodestar guider. Galaxy M101. Bit disappointed as I thought it might turn out a lot deeper than this. Now realising my … Continue reading

The Hyperstar III does M31 the Andromeda galaxy

The Hyperstar III/Trius 814C combination was used to grab this central view of M31.  The red circle shows the size of the full Moon for comparison.

Hyperstar III and SX 814C captures M87

Another clear night last night, so I moved a bit downwards in the Virgo cluster to get the M87 region.  No sign of the jet as far as I can see with 14 x 5-minute subs.

M100 using the Hyperstar III and Trius 814C OSC CCD from last night.

Beautiful clear night last night, and a non-intrusive Moon for imaging in the Leo region.  12 x 5-minutes subs on the M100 region and the speed of the Hyperstar really shows through.  Need more data on this for a quality … Continue reading
