Starizona HyperStar 4
for Fastar Compatible Celestron 8" SCT

Image faster than ever with your Celestron C8 using this HyperStar 4! This accessory allows you to image up to a 4.1-degree field of view at an astonishing fast f/1.9 with an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope! The HyperStar C8 is compatible many major astronomical cameras, including cameras from Meade, Orion, Atik, SBIG, Mallincam, Starlight Xpress, and many more. To order your HyperStarC8, select your camera from the drop-down above and we will send you the proper camera adapter. If your camera is not on the list, please write it into the field provided. It is also important that you give us your secondary housing and the mount style you plan to use with the Hyperstar. In this way, we can make sure you hit the ground running!

The Starizona HyperStar works in the place of your Celestron SCT's secondary mirror. Simply remove the secondary mirror on the C8 and mount the HyperStar lens assembly in its place. This allows you to mount a CCD camera at the front of the telescope. This results in significantly faster imaging and a wider field of view.

Switching between HyperStar System to the telescope's normal f/10 configuration is simple, easy and requires no tools. No re-collimation is necessary because the telescope's secondary mirror is indexed.
