Faith Eckersall has written an article titled “Shining Example” for the March issue of the Hampshire Society Magazine. 

A lot of the article is about Greg’s background which you also can read on this site.  The article has been published with one of our favourite images – the region between NGC1977 and M43 in Orion taken using the Hyperstar/SXV-H9C combination.

Tom How over at Curdridge Observatory dropped me a note to say that he has just finished some interesting work with our image of M81 [Bode’s Nebula].  We produced our single frame Hyperstar image with the SXV-H9C one-shot colour cmaera which gave us a reasonably large field of view (FOV) of one degree by three-quarters of a degree.

Once again they have used our image as a chrominance layer with their own image as a luminance layer and once again the result looks great. 

Make sure you take a look at the original M81 Bodes Nebula Image by Tom How at Curdridge Observatory.  Tom’s image is on the left and our image is on the right.

We have three images in the 2007 yearbook 🙂 :

Page 38 is the 4 frame Hyperstar image of M31 as one of the top 10 images of 2006

Page 72 is a Hyperstar image of M13 as a summer object

Page 97 has the Virgo Cluster as “deep sky delights”

I hope you all managed to see the Daily Mail today?  Sorry for the late posting, other things got in the way today! 

You can read the online version of the article by Michael Hanlon on the Daily Mail website.  If you want a laugh make sure you check out my photo….Never wear a white top when standing next to a white observatory…

The guys over at Curdridge Observatory have done some interesting work with our mosaic image of M31.  We produced our mosaic with the SXV-H9C one-shot colour camera on the Hyperstar lens which has a reasonably large field of view (FOV) of one degree by three-quarters of a degree.

So, what is so interesting?  They have used our image as a chrominance layer with their own image as the luminance layer – the result looks great. 

Make sure you take a look at the original M31 Andromeda Image by Tom How at Curdridge Observatory.  Oh, the Curdridge image is on the left and our image is on the right 🙂

Managed to get some good imaging time with the Sky-90 and SXV-H9C combination – the result is this image of M29 “The Cooling Tower”.

Only 13 sub-exposures at 3-minutes per sub using the Sky 90 and SXV-H9C camera.
