Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
Hi, I have a reflector Celestron Omni XLT 150 and need to purchase an eyepiece, I think the Baader 5mm Hyperion Modular Eyepiece is a good idea, but not sure that is good in my telescope, I need to know if it is compatible with my telescope. Thank you
Yes! This eyepiece will work great with your telescope, it will give you a magnification of 150x. I own one of these eyepieces myself, it does wonders for observing the planets!
Will it work well in a Nexstar 8 Evolution
The Nexstar 8 Evolution has a native focal length of 2032mm, so a 5mm eyepiece comes out to 406x. While a high quality 8" scope is capable of using this magnification, the stability of the air overhead is rarely good enough to allow magnifications above ~
