Starizona HyperStar 11-Inches Version 4 Lens

The HyperStar C11 lens revolutionizes the Celestron 11" SCT, slashing its focal ratio from f/10 to an astounding f/1.9 - a 25-fold increase in speed!

This translates to exposures that are 25 times shorter, a game-changer for deep-sky imaging without the need for guiding or an equatorial wedge in alt-az configuration.

By reducing the telescope's focal length, the HyperStar lens delivers a significantly broader field of view and allows for greater tolerance of tracking errors, enabling hassle-free, unguided, alt-az imaging.

With compatibility extending to CCD, CMOS, and DSLR cameras, the HyperStar 11 caters to a wide range of imaging devices, accommodating up to a 35mm sensor size.

While different cameras necessitate separate adapters, one adapter is thoughtfully included with the HyperStar lens for added convenience.

Capture the cosmos with newfound speed and precision.


Features and Highlights

  • Fast Focal Ratio Transformation: The Starizona HyperStar 11" v4 Lens is engineered to work in conjunction with Celestron 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. It facilitates a remarkable conversion of the native f/10 focal ratio to an incredibly fast f/1.9. This represents a 25-fold increase in speed, allowing for significantly shorter exposure times in astrophotography. 
  • Game-Changing Exposure Times: The accelerated focal ratio of f/1.9 translates to exposures that are 25 times shorter compared to the original f/10 configuration. This breakthrough empowers astrophotographers to capture stunning deep-sky images without the need for guiding or an equatorial wedge, especially in alt-azimuth telescope configurations.
  • Wider Field of View: The HyperStar lens effectively shortens the focal length of the telescope, resulting in a substantially broader field of view. This expanded view enables you to capture extensive areas of the night sky in a single frame, perfect for imaging large celestial objects like galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters.
  • Enhanced Tolerance for Tracking Errors: The modified focal length not only widens the field of view but also provides a greater tolerance for tracking errors. This means that unguided, alt-azimuth imaging becomes more feasible and less demanding, making the HyperStar 11" v4 lens an excellent choice for astrophotographers seeking ease and convenience in their imaging endeavors.
  • Compatibility with Various Cameras: The HyperStar 11" v4 lens is designed to work with a wide range of cameras, including CCD, CMOS, and DSLR cameras. This versatility ensures that you can use the camera that best suits your preferences and equipment. The lens accommodates sensors up to a 35mm size, providing flexibility for different imaging setups.
  • Included Adapter for Convenience: While different cameras may require specific adapters, Starizona provides one adapter with the HyperStar lens to get you started. This thoughtful inclusion enhances user convenience and ensures compatibility with a variety of imaging devices.
  • High-Quality Optics for Superb Image Quality: The HyperStar 11" v4 lens is engineered with precision optics to maintain high image quality and reduce optical aberrations, even at the fast f/1.9 focal ratio. This ensures that your images are sharp, clear, and free from distortions, allowing you to capture fine details in celestial objects with exceptional clarity.
  • Durable Construction for Longevity: The lens is typically constructed with high-quality materials to ensure durability and longevity. This robust build ensures that the lens can withstand the demands of astrophotography and provide consistent performance over time.
  • Crafted in the USA: The Starizona HyperStar 11" v4 Lens is a testament to our steadfast commitment to producing top-tier astronomy gear on American soil. Opting for the HyperStar 11" v4 Lens not only champions homegrown manufacturing but also instills trust in the exceptional level of craftsmanship synonymous with products proudly made in the USA.
