The Baader Planetarium Hyperion 68-degree Modular Eyepieces offer world-class performance and unique photo-visual features at an unheard of price. 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 multi-functional design.
As a visual eyepiece, 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 and an optical design that is free of the annoying kidney-bean effect.
