A 4-frame Hyperstar III mosaic of the Gamma Cassiopeia region taken a long while ago.
The Rosette nebula reprocessed using the proper procedure in Registar.
I guess it must be obvious that the weather hasn’t been too good recently and there’s no new data to work on. So I revisited the Double Cluster and Stock 2 data taken using the Sky 90s and M26Cs on … Continue reading
A reprocess of the Sky 90/M26C data with North to the right – cropped to a smaller field of view.

I actually spent a little while looking at the “Help” instructions that came with Registar in an attempt to see what it does and to hopefully apply it properly to mosaics. Why has it taken me so long to look … Continue reading
Managed to get 2 hours of 10-minute subs using the Hyperstar III on 26/01/2012. In fact I got 4 hours worth of subs but didn’t realise the bottom of the image was being clipped by the trees over the back, … Continue reading
