This is a 4-frame Hyperstar III image of the Ruchbah region in Cassiopeia.

Image

Full of stars as it's in the Milky Way, and full of open clusters. This is the first 4-framer taken with the Hyperstar and it is the beginning of a giga-project - imaging the whole of Cassiopeia at high resolution.

Image expertly assembled and processed by Noel Carboni as usual :D

Greg

Hi Greg,

I'm looking forward to further teasers. And please pass thanks on to Noel, not only for his work on your data but also for that 5D MkII "black spot" Photoshop action. I've got a copy ready to roll should I ever decide to go ahead with the purchase. 8)

Bob.

Hi Bob,

I'll certainly pass the message onto Noel :D
Happy New Year,
Greg

P.S. As an early teaser - a 4-framer of Shadir also includes the Pac Man nebula - looks very nice :)
