Welcome to HSI! I hope you have a great time here but there has never been a Hyperstar for a Meade 12" and I dont believe there are any plans for one.
My CCD Imaging System:
Starizona C-8 Hyperstar 3 w/filter adapter
Celestron Nexstar 8 GPS
Orion Starshoot II CCD

Default Requesting critique of images

I'm new to imaging and this forum. I'm posting an image (hope it comes thru--not sure if I've done it right. 19.5 KB file size seems pretty small). They're looking OK, but I know I have a lot of room for improvement. I'd love it if an experienced imager can point me in the direction for improvement.

Using a Celestron 11", no wedge.
Hyperstar and Starlight Express camera HV9
Manual focusing
All are combined from about 18 images ranging from 10 sec to 30 sec, Maxim and some Photoshop.

Many thanks!
John Highsmith
