Important Note on Hyperstar Adaptation

The distances for camera to Hyperstar system adaptation must be made with a precision of at least +/- 0.3 mm in order to prevent image quality deterioration.

For example, the Celestron C11 has a 59.7 mm backfocus. In addition, the focus shifts 0.66 mm in the extrafocal direction if you use filters with a 2 mm thickness (since these are typically used for 2"/M48 housings). As a rule of thumb, a filter moves the focus in the extrafocal direction for a third of the filter's thickness. Subtract the flange focal distance of the camera from this value. The leftover distance is adjusted by the UCF and its adapters. Please contact us if you need help.
