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.

Baader Hyperion 17 mm

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.

Excellent

These Baader hyperion eyepieces are superb value for money. Great optics at a really good price. I have a fast F/5 dobsonion, and I struggle to find my 17mm views in any way inferior to the views through my 10mm Pentax eyepiece (and that's saying something!. I didn't find the 13mm as good as the 17mm, but the 17mm is definitely a keeper.

Great Eyepiece

The people at OPT are great. I couldn't decide between the 17 or 13mm and they reccomended the 17 (my new scope came with a 26mm and a 32mm and I already had a Baader 8mm. These are the best eyepieces for the money out there, I sure wish they sold them in a cased set. I'll be getting the 21mm and the 13mm next. I will end up with all of them, these eyepieces can't be beat for twice the price. They even hold up well in a fast f4.5 scope. With a Paracorr I can't tell the difference between my Baaders and my friends Panoptics. These are great eyepieces, no need to look any further, these are what you want.
