Description

Baader Planetarium has evolved the wide-field astronomical eyepiece to a new level.    Introducing the world’s first production Astronomical Eyepieces to use aspheric surfaces, the 31mm and 36mm Baader Hyperion-Aspheric 72º Modular Eyepieces.  This new technology has allowed Baader to eliminate eyepiece aberrations without the usual penalty of extra lens elements, excessive size and weight, or high cost.

 

The Hyperion-Aspheric’s freedom from blackouts, kidney beaning, and lack of distortion combines with their long eye relief to produce a view that is uncommonly comfortable and natural for all users (including eye-glass wearers and users of popular astigmatism correcting lenses).

 

The ultra-wide 72° field is extremely flat and distortionless (virtually free of angular magnification distortion)

 

Baader’s renowned Phantom Group Multi-Coatings and thorough internal baffling produce an extremely bright and high contrast view that is free of scatter.

 

Superb for projection imaging.  The Hyperion-Aspherics are threaded to accept the full line of Hyperion Digital T-Rings, for a robust direct attachment of almost any camera.  The clever use of 2"x24tpi SCT threads for attaching the 2" barrel permits the Hyperion-Aspherics to directly thread onto the rear cell of popular SCTs.  This results in the highest rigidity possible for imaging.

 

Dual Barrel Configuration – two barrel sizes are provided with each Hyperion Aspheric.  The standard 2” barrel provides the full 72º field size, and a special wide-field 1¼” barrel provides the maximum true field ever in a 1¼” format, with a field stop size of 1.265”(32mm)! - perfect for extracting every bit of field possible in 1¼” telescopes or binoviewers.

      my telescope is a LX 200 ACF 12" Meade I purchased it last december, a christmas gift to myself and if one my two boys have any children some grand kid will be very happy. Now to the main focus I went out last night 10/11/2012 oh my creators of all I love the 31mm yes I have a 41mm ,but I must be honest I love it. I was speechless and amazed great product. I own many top name products and yours rank in my top two.Thanks Now I must convince my wife I needed your 36mm.

            I bought this EP for myself. The EP has great optics and the heavens look much brighter and the contrast is great. Also, the 70* FOV is absolutely amazing!

            Comments about Baader Planetarium Hyperion-Aspheric Modular Telescope Eyepieces:

            This is a great e.p for pretty much any focal length scope. I was nervous that there would be considerable distortion around the edge of the field of view in my shorter focal length scopes. I'm not going to sit hear and tell you that the view is perfect to the very edge but it is extremely close to perfect. In my longer focal length scopes the view is flawless. This e.p has great color correction, a very wide window to look through and the eye relief wasn't so bad for a longer focal length e.p.
            One of my favorite things about it's design is the barrel. Being able to unscrew the 1.25" barrel and screw on the 2" barrel was great for getting the most out of the massive 70* F.O.V! Not to say that the f.o.v isn't impressive with the 1.25" barrel because it is. I was able to take in the whole North American Nebula with one of my dobs which is a first for any of the e.p's I have owned!
            If I had to list some cons I would say that in my f/4.7 dob you do see some edge distortion but for the price it really does hold it's own to much more expensive 30mm+ e.ps. Also, it can throw your scope off balance due to it's weight. It's not any heavier than other e.ps in it's range though.
            In my opinion I think this e.p is a great performer and I have no regrets on buying it. If you have used any of the other Hyperions you should know what to expect, great performance at a reasonable price.

              Compact and light weight for being a 2" and very well corrected optics for superb deep sky views on my Celestron 11" XLT. Worth all the money!

                  I purchased this eyepiece to use with my new Celestron CPC 800 telescope. The improvement in Field of View over the 40 mm eyepiece that comes with the telescope is tremendous. Well worth the investment!

                    Comments about Baader Planetarium Hyperion-Aspheric Modular Telescope Eyepieces:

                    I have been looking for a good low power eyepiece in the sub $200 range for my f/10 C8 SCT. I've tried several other models and none were overall as good as this one. In this price range, any eyepiece is a compromise and none will be sharp all the way to the edge. This is no exception, but field curvature only affects the outer 10% or so of the view which is pretty good. Contrast is good, on axis sharpness is excellent. I found other eyepieces that did were as nice as this, but they were huge and weighed twice as much. The aspheric lenses apparently give this eyepiece the ability to keep up with the others in a much smaller package, which is important to me. The only eyepiece I found with better views is the Meade 5000 SWA 34mm, but it was only slightly better and weighed a ton throwing my scope out of balance. I'm not sure how this would fare on faster scopes, but on my f/10 it's a keeper!
