Filter adapter for the HS3
Well I have the Filter Adapter for my Hyperstar 3 on the way. I will post some pictures on my gallyer when it comes in. Anyone else on the waiting list for one?

nice set5up

You have a sweet setup there. Is the OTA carbon fiber?

clear skies,


Kevin 12-17-2007 07:57 PM

I do have a carbon fiber scope. the C-8 on the AP900 is Starizonas set up. I hope to have something like that or a CGE in the future.

romeropaul 12-17-2007 08:02 PM

9k for a AP900

do you have a link to a photo of that setup? If you can get an AP900 by all means go for it! BUT dont forget a camera costs $$, too, and Hyperstar probably doesnt need 5 minute unguided exposures.

My kit* is currently in "no-mans land" between the USA and the UK (it left LAX on Sunday afternoon according to USPS), and am desperately hoping it doesnt get stuck for too long in customs here in the UK... I might be lucky and get it before Christmas.

Any pics you have of the setup would keep me going until mine arrives :)

(* HS C8 V3 + Filter adapter + Feathertouch + Microtouch)

i just got my adapter today. I did 5x1min shots of Orion with a Orion O-III filter. Not to bad. I will post pictures when I am done. I am still new to all this and being 18 its hard to drop the cash for a QHY8 at the moment. So the Orion Star Shoot II, HS3, filter adapter, and a C-8 Nexstar GPS CF with feather touch micro focuser is my imaging set up. My images dont seem to be as nice and sharp as everyone elses. But I will post my Orion shot.

SteveL 12-20-2007 04:14 PM

Got that Orion image ready for the gallery yet, Kevin? Also I`m curious to see what the filter adapter looks like (if you have a picture of that)

Kevin 12-20-2007 08:40 PM

Sorry for the wait I will post a picture tomorrow of the hyperstar with the adapter. My Orion shot didnt come out to good I need to play with it. I dont have photoshop yet so I dont have as sharp of images as the rest of you do. Someday soon I will be able to shoot as good as you guys. But hey I am probably the youngest person in the world to own a Hyperstar!
