Description

First light with the hyper star and was only able to get 20 minutes worth using 30 second subs before sun up. overall, impressive. I threw all the frames together which is why I was getting a band at the top. I'm also wondering about some flaring that I'm getting with this feature. Not sure yet if It can be suppressed.
