    Default Funstar, has anyone managed to fit corrector/lens on it?



    So ive been looking for the fumstar for a while now, as an alternative for the hyperstar because i wont afford it any time soon for my Celesteon c8,.

    But i am aware about the extreme abberation or distortion on the funstar because it has no lens on anything, but it has to be possible to fit a lens or corrector on it to make it useable, didnt find anything about it on the web.

    It has to be possible diy? Right?
