  • After installation of the HyperStar Lens Conversion Kit the telescope optics must be collimated, but the collimation is then maintained when the secondary is detached for the HyperStar imaging

The HyperStar Lens Conversion Kit enables a non-HyperStar-compatible SCT to be converted into a compatible telescope. Included with the kit are three components that replace the original secondary mirror assembly.

For installation, the original assembly must be removed from the telescope. First remove the corrector plate. After this step, the baffle tube is un-threaded to allow the secondary holder to be removed. The secondary mirror itself is then removed and placed into the new holder. This assembly is then put back onto the corrector plate and reinstalled into the telescope.

After installation the optics on the telescope must be collimated. Collimation is then retained when the secondary is removed for the HyperStar imaging. Using a threaded ring assists in the removal of the secondary mirror. Included with the HyperStar lens is a holder to safely store the secondary mirror while out of the telescope.
