Product Details

  • The Baader 17.5 mm Morpheus 76 Degree Eyepiece:

    Baader produced the Morpheus 76-degree eyepiece with the goal of a truly immersive and low cost eyepiece that could be easily accessed by novice astronomers. It is very safe to accuse them of having succeeded in this respect, with the Morpheus eyepieces as a rule outperforming their price class by a notable margin. The term 'Spacewalk' is often bandied about by visual astronomers to describe the viewing experience as being akin to walking through space oneself. It is usually considered exclusively a characteristic of such high price, wide field of view eyepieces as the Nagler series, but the Morpheus can be said to deliver that splendid experience with only a 76-degree field-of-view. The Morpheus boasts full sharpness to the very edge of the field of view along with a highly comfortable level of eye relief at ~23 mm, two features that combine to enable those luxurious extended viewing sessions.

    Baader 17.5mm Morpheus 76 degree Eyepiece-5

    The Morpheus is equally compatible with both 1.25" and 2" openings and apertures, and has foldable eye-cups for extreme comfort. The Morpheus eyepieces are highly optimized for binoviewing as well, having been designed with convenience and ease of use in conjunction with binoviewers in mind.

    And don't forget, it has Glow-in-the-Dark labeling so you can find them and see easily which size it is.

    Baader Morpheus 17.5mm eyepiece

    Finally, after a 2-year wait, the "mythical" 17.5mm Morpheus has a place in my eyepiece case alongside the 14mm Morpheus. Wonderful eyepiece. Preliminary observations/tests on my f/4.5 big Dob have been quite good. Velvety-black background even in some moonlight. Great contrast. Like the new & improved eyecup. Will give it the first complete deep sky road-test this weekend, now that the moon is out of the evening sky.
