This image is a 5×60 seconds exposure. Bad work of background normalisation. Hyperstar has some vignetting in APS-C. That way I think is unusable with a full frame. The FL measured was 680.1 mm, FL F1.91. Collimation was a first try. Ive not tweaked to better images. Also camera cable was loose on the telescope and this caused too the unround stars.

This is the full image.
