Hyperstarring with the ZWO ASI533MC Pro

Post by umasscrew39 » Fri Jan 10, 2020 2:22 pm

Had a couple of clear nights to get some nice captures despite the bright moon. These were taken with a C11" EdgeHD using the hyperstar (f/2) with the ASI533MC Pro and an Optolong L-eNhance filter. All images are 30s stacks for 15-20 minutes using SC and post-processed using PixInsight.

Nice Orion there Bruce - has a 3-D effect. The benefits of f/2, I have to go 120s exposures (no filter) to obtain the same result. There seems no impact from the moon on any of the images, so the filter looks to be doing its job well.

Thanks very much, Dave. The hyperstar, which I have had a few years, really is an amazing accessory to explore wide field views with no need to guide and the L-eNhance filter continues to perform well.
