Now that my wallet is done crying...

Bought the Hyperstar setup from Starizona and a QHY8L from Astrofractors. This seems like a great starting setup for Hyperstar, and the camera was the same price as the 60DA I was eyeballing previously.

Once it all arrives, I will post up pictures.

Bill - Can't wait to see the results of your imaging with it.

Just arrived yesterday, although as expected we had clouds and thunderstorms. Today is looking promising here in WA, so I might be able to get the Hyperstar gear up and going tonight to do a little imaging. Scope is outside now! :fingerscrossed: :yay:

Hi John,

Your above link failed but I think you were referring to this one. (?) :idea:

http://www.cloudynig...5695352/page...

(I think you meant to write "fpart/1/vc/1" instead of fpart/7/vc/1").

:waytogo:

Best regards,
Tel
