Martin, thanks for passing on those links. Binning during the processing phase is quite a nice feature by Startools.

Hi David,
Just a random question......do you have the hyperstar for your C14?
I'm planning to get the starizona nexus for my own F4 newtonian soon.....well as soon as I can cough up ~750AUD for it

Bear in mind Iím imaging at just over 0.3Ē/pixel, but when guiding or sky conditions are not ideal I donít get anywhere near that resolution.

The asi2600mc has a built in uv/ir filter in the sensor window hence no need to add another filter to the mix. If youíre camera doesnít have this then itís usually advised to use one in the image train. The best results for galaxies are always in dark sky and no filter, although in my case in the suburbs Iíll settle for a moonless night!

Thanks very much Ron. Yes a very nice target indeed!

Hi Ahmed- yeh Iíve got a Hyperstar but to tell you the truth I actually prefer things at longer fl and seeing all that juicy detail! I use the Hyperstar for some fun with targets that need a wider fov so quite handy to have still.
