Baader Hyperion EP's

Post by bholmes » Mon Oct 15, 2012 9:44 am

Has anyone got ant experience of using these EP's? I was treated to some good views through wide angle Plossl EP's which have tempted me to upgrade a few of my cheaper EP's. I then came across these which seem to offer quite a bit of flexibility if you also buy the fine tuning rings which give 2 or 3 magnification options for the same eyepiece.

I would mainly use them with a 10" SCT.

Any views?

Regards

I'd not heard of them, but I found this video from our friend at AstronomyShed:

which illustrates how their "modular concept" works.
But I woudn't like to try that 17mm eyepiece in my 2" star-diagonal - I suspect that the 1.25" barrel-extension would bang into the mirror?

On a more general point, I wouldn't bother with 1.25" eyepieces for a 10" SCT - stick with the 2" designs.
