Starizona Hyperstar 3 & Camera Adapter - Celestron C8
The HyperStar Lens by Starizona - For use with 8-Inch Celestron telescopes:
Introducing the new HyperStar 3! This new HyperStar lens now accommodates CCD chips up to 27 mm diagonal, allowing for a huge field of view at incredibly fast speeds!
HyperStar is based on Celestron's innovative FaStar feature. This feature allows the secondary mirror to be removed from Celestron's 8-inch, 11-inch, and 14-inch Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. By mounting the HyperStar lens assembly in place of the secondary mirror, a CCD camera can be mounted at the front of the telescope allowing for a wider field of view and much faster imaging.
The HyperStar lens assembly works with a variety of cameras from SBIG, Starlight Xpress, SAC, Orion, Meade, and Astrovid. Different cameras require different adapters, however. One adapter is included with the HyperStar lens.
A holder is included for safe storage of the secondary mirror while imaging.
The HyperStar systems allows the telescope to operate at a focal ratio of f/2.0, an incredible 25 times faster than the standard f/10 focal ratio! Images can be obtained in just seconds!
Please specify the camera being used when ordering.
