Starizona HyperStar Conversion Kit for Celestron 11-Inches SCT Lens - HSCK-C11

This comprehensive kit facilitates the conversion of non-HyperStar-compatible SCTs into fully compatible telescopes.

Comprising three key components, it seamlessly replaces the original secondary mirror assembly.

Installation entails the careful removal of the original assembly, beginning with the corrector plate.

Subsequently, the baffle tube is unthreaded to facilitate the removal of the secondary holder. The secondary mirror is then extracted and securely placed into the new holder.

This assembled unit is then reattached to the corrector plate and reinstalled into the telescope.

Following installation, a precise collimation of the telescope optics is required.

Notably, this collimation remains intact even when the secondary mirror is removed for HyperStar imaging.

The removal of the secondary mirror is achieved through a threaded ring.

While temporarily removed from the telescope, the secondary mirror is safely stored in an included holder provided with the HyperStar lens.

Please be aware that the older orange-tube Celestron SCTs feature secondary mirrors with a distinct mounting method compared to current models.

This necessitates a modification to the Conversion Kit, incurring an additional cost of $50.

For inquiries regarding the Conversion Kit or to ascertain the version compatibility of your telescope, please feel free to reach out for personalized assistance.

 


Features and Highlights

  • Facilitates HyperStar Compatibility: The Starizona HyperStar Conversion Kit for Celestron 11" SCT Lens is purpose-built to enable non-HyperStar-compatible Celestron 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (SCTs) to seamlessly work with HyperStar imaging systems. This kit serves as the essential bridge between the telescope and the HyperStar lens.
  • Comprehensive Three-Component Kit: The kit includes three crucial components designed to replace the original secondary mirror assembly of the telescope. These components are meticulously crafted to ensure a precise fit and seamless integration with the Celestron 11" SCT.
  • Detailed Installation Process: Installing the HyperStar Conversion Kit involves a step-by-step process. The original assembly must be removed, starting with the careful removal of the corrector plate. Subsequently, the baffle tube is unthreaded to facilitate the removal of the secondary holder. The secondary mirror is then extracted and securely placed into the new holder. This assembled unit is then reattached to the corrector plate and reinstalled into the telescope.
  • Retains Collimation Precision: Following installation, a precise collimation of the telescope optics is required. Notably, this collimation remains intact even when the secondary mirror is removed for HyperStar imaging. This ensures that the telescope's optical alignment is maintained for optimal performance.
  • Safe Secondary Mirror Storage: The kit includes a dedicated holder for safely storing the secondary mirror when it is temporarily removed from the telescope during the HyperStar imaging process. This thoughtful inclusion ensures that the mirror is protected from potential damage or dust accumulation.
  • Compatibility Considerations for Older Models: It's important to note that older orange-tube Celestron SCTs have secondary mirrors with a distinct mounting method compared to current models. This may necessitate a modification to the Conversion Kit, incurring an additional cost of $50. For accurate guidance on the compatibility of your telescope or to order the modified Conversion Kit, please contact Starizona directly.
  • Made in USA: The Starizona HyperStar Conversion Kit for Celestron 11" SCT Lens exemplifies American craftsmanship and quality. This kit seamlessly transforms compatible Celestron telescopes into fast f/2 imaging systems, enabling astrophotographers to capture stunning celestial images in a fraction of the time required with traditional setups.
