I have had the 183MM sensor a while, but have not been using it with the Hyperstar due to significant sensor tilt. With the application of a screwdriver to screws at the corners of the circuit board, and judging tilt by eye, things have been much improved! The stars are trailed because I have stacked on the comet.
