Yeah probably

So long as you're not over the maximum payload for the mount, you should be OK. Take time to get your balance right.

Also, don't lose sight of the focal length difference you'll get with the Hyperstar...it'll be roughly a fifth of the native, and exposure times will be MUCH shorter. Consequently, anything affecting your tracking will be much less visible with Hyperstar.
