The Hyperstar is out, so I can do visual observation of bright objects in the bright summer night sky. I couldn't resist doing a bit of comet imaging though, and this is what arose having stacked reducers at the visual back and slotted in a planetary cam. This is the first time I've captured an obvious coma on W2.
