About the Baader Planetarium HYP-8

The Baader Planetarium HYP-8 Hyperion 68-degree Modular Eyepiece offers world-class performance and unique photo-visual features. No longer do amateurs need to spend more on their eyepieces than their primary instrument in order to get true high-end performance in a wide-field eyepiece. Not just a different branded version of their highly regarded cousins, the Hyperion has been totally redesigned to deliver better transmission, contrast and useful new features. Baader Planetarium has worked hard to give the Hyperion the world's finest optical coatings, superb mechanics and their unique multifunctional design.

The Hyperion delivers superb sharpness and color fidelity across their 68-degree wide, flat-field, even in fast telescopes. From their superb on-axis and off-axis sharpness to their pitch-black high contrast field, the Hyperion really works. Viewing through a Hyperion is notably comfortable and relaxing, due to their forgiving eye-position, 20 mm of eye-relief, extra-large eyelens and an optical design that is free of annoying 'kidney-beaning' and blackouts.

Baader Planetarium HYP-8 Features

  • The Baader Hyperion Telescope 8 mm Eyepiece delivers a true 68-degree field of view with 20 mm of eye relief
  • Compatible with both 1.25" and 2" focusers and great for binoviewers
  • The Baader Hyperion Telescope 8 mm Eyepiece is famous for sharp, high-contrast images with a flat field, even in fast telescopes
  • High index glass and specially designed coatings yield darker sky and more stars than competitors
  • The Baader Hyperion Telescope 8 mm Eyepiece is designed with internal baffling to eliminate ghost reflections and stray light
  • Accepts Televue Dioptrx astigmatism correction lenses
  • Consisting of 8 elements in 5 groups, the Hyperion optical design delivers outstanding sharpness and color correction over a true 68-degree wide field, along with a comfortable 20 mm of eye-relief
  • High grade water-white glasses are used throughout to deliver a crystal clear view with low scatter and excellent color fidelity, free of the yellow or bluish coloration imparted by many other eyepieces
  • The Hyperion multi-coatings and coating equipment are proprietary to Baader and have been designed by coating engineers specifically for the Baader Hyperion, and optimized for each of the glasses used
  • The proprietary Hyperion housings have been engineered by Baader to incorporate careful opto-mechanical design and execution of internal baffling to eliminate stray light and ghost reflections
  • Superb fit and finish. Eyepiece barrels are accurate to size, nicely machined, and hard-anodized
  • Works in both 1.25" and 2" focusers. The 1.25" barrel is threaded for filters and kept short (0.94") to work well in binoviewers and spotting scopes. Baader's new housing incorporates a full-length 2" barrel (0.94" long) and provides a specially designed tapered locking recess
  • Soft folding rubber eyecups work for both normal and eyeglass users. Each Hyperion comes with protective lens caps and leatherette storage pouch
  • Accepts popular Astigmatism Correcting Lenses. The Hyperion eyelens housing is compatible with the full range of correcting lenses from 1/4 to 3-1/2 Diopters
  • The Baader Hyperion incorporate some unique and innovative aspects, which are designed to make them the ideal projection eyepiece
  • The optical design of the Hyperion enables them to work as an extremely sharp wide-field projection eyepiece for even large chip CCD and DSLRs
  • The eyelens barrel has been provided with two different external threads, M43 and M54 (these are covered by the removable rubber eyecups)
  • The front negative lens element is designed to be removed (and exposes an M48 2" filter thread). This converts each Hyperion into a longer focal length high-quality projection eyepiece, giving the imager two choices of focal length with each eyepiece
