Farpoint Bahtinov Mask for Celestron 8" SCT with Hyperstar

Farpoint Bahtinov Mask for the newer Celestron 8" SCT with Hyperstar or Fastar (post 2008)

In 2008, Pavel Bahtinov, a Russian amateur telescope maker and astronomer, created a great new way to easily focus a DSLR camera, webcam, or CCD camera for astrophotography. Ever since the Bahtinov Mask has been an essential part of an astronomer's arsenal. It works very simply, consisting of three separate grids that are positioned so as to produce three angled diffraction spikes at the focal plane of the instrument for each bright image element. This particular model is made for the C8 Schmidt-Cassegrain, snapping easily into place with that model. Made out of virtually indestructible ABS plastic, the Farpoint Unmounted Bahtinov Mask will last you as long as it needs to, and is both durable and effective. To make a long story short; using this device, you can make use of an ingenious and simple method of focusing any kind of camera, and this simple focus mask is durable enough for many years of use!


Please Note: This Bahtinov Focus Mask is not for the "Classic" Celestron 8-Inch SCT (without Fastar or Hyperstar). If you have the pre-2008 model this will not fit, you will need to order the FP-410. 


This is Product Number: FP-410H

Focusing Mask

Have not had a single clear night to use since it arrived. Going to an exorcist to have the evil spell removed from this hardware - sigh
