The Celestial Pole

Recommended Posts

I used Sharpcap Pro to get the Hyperstar 4 C11 on a wedge rig Polar Aligned. I cannot sing it praises highly enough. It is a BRILLIANT piece of software. If I can get a piece of crap mount within 10 arcseconds of the Pole, then anyone with a half decent mount can do better. Anyway - after Polar Aligning I just left the scope pointing where it was and got 14 x 3-minute subs with an almost full Moon out.

Very nice Prof. Be interesting to turn the mount off for a minute and watch the circular drift to pinpoint the exact pole.

You could do some good star trails with that setup. It has a decent field of view and seems to be quite sensitive as well. However I take it that the above image is a monochrome camera?
