Starizona HyperStar Lens - 11'' Celestron
New HyperStar 3 Lens for the C11!
The new HyperStar 3 lens allows the use of sensors up to 27mm diagonal (APS-size). It also works with DSLRs in addition to a variety of CCD cameras.
HyperStar is based on Celestron's innovative Fastar feature. This feature allows the secondary mirror to be removed from Celestron's 8", 11", and 14" 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. Please specify the camera being used when ordering.
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, 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.
