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.


CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

      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 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!
