C8 Hyperstar and Atik 414EX

Posted By Floyd Blue

I don't know, that looks suspiciously like a dark frame, with a couple of hot pixels. Maybe the shutter is not opening or you chose Darks instead of Lights?

C8 Hyperstar and Atik 414EX

What I would suggest is to pick a very bright star, make sure it is in the frame, using an eyepiece in the draw tube first if necessary. Then use 2 second continuous exposures and try to find the focus point. It is possible that you setup cannot reach focus without extension or something, that is not unheard of.
