Hi guys…

My first post on CN although I've been a lurker for over a year. I just bought a Hyperstar system last fall and living here in Tucson, it has been a great help to be able to go down to Starizona on the weekends for help. Scott and Dean are incredibly helpful and eager to help you get the results you are trying to get.

My system is a Celestron Edge HD 1100, CGEM DX mount, Atik 460EX OSC camera, a Celestron 80mm guide scope and STX Lodestar for guiding. I use Maxim DL and Photoshop CS6 for image processing but am just getting started with PS.

I also bought the filter slider adapter for my Hyperstar and recently purchased a Ha filter but haven't used it yet.

I thought I'd share a few of my photos here as well and I hope the thread sees a bit more activity. This one is NGC 7023 (Iris Nebula) in Cepheus from a week ago.

Curt

Wonderful image Curt!

How long were your subs and how many did you use?

Regards

Alfredo

Nice work Curt! I just picked up a Fastar C11 this April with the hopes of getting the Hyperstar next year. I hope to get as nice results as you have. Keep posting.

Thanks, James… you'll love the Hyperstar, especially if you live in a high LP area.
