Very Nice!!! Is it possible to use filters with this scope?

This is with a FLI Microline 11002 OSC

Very beautiful and colorful images!
Any change you can post a full resolution sample of the images?

What about the camera cable, any special configuration used? Was it setup straight, curved, etc...?

The cable is straight out from the center. It is very noticeable on a defocused star. You can see it on the brighter stars in the images.

I just ordered one and an Atik 11000 from Starizona. I hope my images are half as as nice as yours!

Holy cow! That's just not fair, please share some of that starlight with the rest of us!
Virtually word for word what I said when I saw the images! Glen

Are you kidding me?! These are absolutely awesome results for 5 minute exposures!! This blows my socks off and I may just have give up on my DLSR and go get a new CCD camera (and maybe a RASA too.) Heck, I may even have to give up on rock climbing and take up golf it that helps too…
Thanks for sharing….this is seriously good stuff!

Beautiful, but I have come to expect that with your posts!

Thanks again everyone!!! I really think Celestron knocked it out of the park with this imaging scope.

NGC 1333...so beautiful I almost swallowed my tongue!
An incredible set of images. Thank you for posting, Sir.

Are these 5mins SINGLE exposure?? Unbelievable...
What am I doing with my stuff night after night here...

This is the focal length (field of view) normally done by expensive 5" APO refractors but 11" is way better. Is this the end of expensive APO refractors?

Would it be possible to use a filter like an LPR filter with this setup? Starizona has the filter slide for the Hyperstar and not sure if it would work on this setup. I would seriously consider this scope for fast OSC imaging

Wow, truly impressive work while just scratching the surface with the OTA/camera combo. I get the feeling we are going to see some dusty shots we have not seen before. Congrats.

Looks like that could be a good and more economical alternative to the Veloce 200. Great shots.

Jimmy what's the actual image scale with this FL sensor combo? What WxH of the sky are you grabbing. I was looking at a hyperstar C8 with mono camera for comet hunting. After looking at your images I'm thinking this could kill a couple cats with one stone if the image scale is large enough.

Very nice indeed!! Congrats!
How many subs in each image?
