Starizona Hyperstar Lens V4 - for 8-Inch Celestron Edge HD

The evolution of intelligent design has continued with Version 4 of the HyperStar 8. Version 4 is faster at f/1.9, has a larger imaging circle of 28 mm, and produces significantly improved 30% smaller spot sizes. The design of the housing has also been modified to improve the ease and accuracy of collimation.

The HyperStar 4 Lens by Starizona (HD version) - For use with 8-Inch Celestron Edge HD Telescopes:

HyperStar is based on Celestron's innovative Fastar feature. This feature allows the secondary mirror to be removed from Celestron's Edge HD 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.

Switching from HyperStar to the telescope's normal f/10 configuration is simple and fast. It takes only a minute or two, requires no tools, and the telescope's secondary mirror is indexed so no re-collimation is necessary.

The HyperStar lens assembly works with a variety of cameras from Atik, Orion, Meade, Mallincam, SBIG, Starlight Xpress and more. Different cameras require different adapters in order to preserve the critical backfocus distance of the HyperStar lens. One adapter is included with the HyperStar lens. Please specify the camera being used when ordering.

A holder is included for safe storage of the secondary mirror while imaging.

The HyperStar systems allow an 8" telescope to operate at a focal ratio of f/1.9, an incredible 28 times faster than the standard f/10 focal ratio! Images can be obtained in just seconds!

Superior Quality

If you own an Celestron SCT and are into Astrophotography you owe it to your self to add this incredible quality product to your line up. Excellent quality and support via Starizona great images and incredibly fast - minimal exposure times. If you have an AZ-Mount or like the simplicity of unguided work this lens is a must have. Worth the high price tag.
