Best lens coating!

Love the fiel of view. Also the lens coating is excellent, the image is brighter than my Celestron eyepiece of the same power.

Llegó impecable este magnifico ocular, recomendado 100%, me encantan los hyperion de baader


Hey there, 20 50 is alright, a bit too high maioifgcatinn for a 50mm apeture. If you already have it thats wonderful. Theres two main type of binos. One is for bird watching and the other is astronomical. If you want astronomical, I'd recommend a 15 70 Celestron Skymaster Binos the down side is that it weighs alot so youd need a tripod. If you want Bird watching binos, get a lower maioifgcatinn and a smaller apeture and it doesnt need a tri pod. If you got more questions message me.


You'd find 50mm objectives would not allow engouh light gathering at that great magnification. Big dim images are less rewarding than smaller, wider field, brighter ones. With binos, a wider less magnified image allows you to locate deep sky objects as they relate to their neighbours; i.e. whole constellations make sense, but isolated stars streaking by don't. Finally, if that 50 50 objective to magnification relationship were useful, pros would use and advocate them. They don't.

I bought this EP along with the 13mm version about a month ago as an alternative to the 19mm Panoptic. I'm very satisfied with both EPs and plan on adding the 5mm and 21mm as my next EP purchases.
