Introducing the newest member of the HyperStar family, the HyperStar C6!
Starizona HyperStar Lens - 6'' Celestron
It's little, it's cute, but it performs just like its big brothers! The HyperStar C6 is a perfect match to one-shot color CCDs like the Starlight Xpress SXVF-H9C and to video systems such as the Stellacam or Mallincam. Capture up to a 2.2-degree field of view at an amazingly fast f/1.9!
HyperStar is based on Celestron's innovative Fastar feature. This feature allows the secondary mirror to be removed from Celestron's Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. By mounting the Starizona 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 Starizona HyperStar lens assembly works with a variety of cameras. 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 Starizona HyperStar systems allows the telescope to operate at a focal ratio of f/1.9, an incredible 30 times faster than the standard f/10 focal ratio! Images can be obtained in just seconds!
Please specify the camera being used when ordering.

- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsWould a DLSR Canon XS body block too much of the optical path of the telescope to be useful? If so what kind of CCD camera would work with this device? Also, I live in a location with moderate light polluted skies. Could the Hyperstar still be used?Question by: krwitman on May 30, 2014 1:11:17 PMYes, the Hyperstar for the C6 will not work with a DSLR, both due to the obstruction and the fact that the C6 Hyperstar only corrects for an ~12mm diameter field, not 27mm like the larger scopes. You can use any of the Starlight Xpress cameras or 400 series Atik cameras with sensors 12mm or smaller in diagonal. The Atik 428 or Starlight-Xpress SX-9 would be good choices.
Light pollution filters may be needed if your skies are bright enough to prevent you from seeing the Milky Way. The Hyperstar has an internal 1.25" filter thread, and I would recommend the Astronomik CLSCCD filter for cutting heavy light pollution.Answer by: Chris (Admin) on Jun 2, 2014 10:49:47 AMI have a black C6 OTA. Not sure if it is fastar compatible. I cannot see you have a conversion kit for a C6. Does it mean that this hyperstar works with all C6 OTA, or I cannot mount it on my OTA?
