    Do you need a filter slider to use filters with HyperStar?

    No, you can use one 2" mounted filter with the standard camera adapter included with the Hyperstar. While ideal for light pollution or IR/Cut filters for one-shot colour camera, consider getting the Filter Slider as it is ideal for quick filter change when you're using a monochrome camera.

     

    Will it be hard to focus with HyperStar?

    Neither easier or harder to focus when compared to other optical system. Accurate focus can be achieved using Bahtinov Masks, AutoFocusers and any software that displays a Full-Width Half-Max star value. The Fast F/ratio does make the backfocus critical, as it requires the HyperStar camera adapters to be within +- .5mm of the camera's backfocus

     

    What telescopes can I use the HyperStar with?

    Your SCT telescope would need to be factory equipped Fastar compatible, as the Hyperstar assembly requires a removable secondary mirror assembly. If not you can consider getting a conversion kit to to make it compatible with the Hyperstar.
