Baader 36mm Hyperion Aspheric Eyepiece - 1.25"/ 2"Baader has taken wide field eyepieces to a new level with the Hyperion 36mm Aspheric Eyepiece, bending their considerable technical expertise towards the creation of a refined and effective wide field eyepiece. The aspheric surfaces used within these exemplary new eyepieces utterly eliminate eyepiece aberrations in a much cleaner and more efficient way than was previously possible, utterly bypassing such pitfalls as extra lens elements, excessive size and weight, or higher cost.
Baader's Hyperion Aspheric eyepieces have been designed with projection imaging optimization in mind, and where created to be compatible with all Hyperion Digital T-Rings. This means that the Hyperion Aspheric Eyepiece can be attached to an incredibly wide array of cameras as well as telescopes. The design makes very efficient use of 2"X24tpi SCT threads with the 2" barrel. This feature allows these splendid eyepieces to attach directly onto the rear cell of most SCT's for maximum imaging rigidity.

I love it
I'm rather new to astronomy,(2 years, I just upgraded my 6 Dobsonian to a 10 Dobsonian, so the view I was getting with just the eyepiece that came with the new scope was quite amazing. After some careful research I decided to go with the Baader Hyperion 36mm, 2-1.25, and I was blown away.The night it came, it was a warm,clear night for viewing, considering I live in a Chicago suburb, and it was January, and the moon was full. I kept changing eyepieces to compare all the other views with this eyepiece, and it wasn't even close. I just started aiming the scope at what looked like an empty black sky, only to be blown away with how many stars, galaxies, and many other objects that were actually there. With the wide field of view and it's clarity make it seem like your looking out a window. I meant to be outside for about 20 minutes, but I got so caught up with the amazing views, I ended up being out for over an hour. The quality, and price make this eyepiece a no brainer. If all Baader eyepieces are this good, I'm going to be switching over all my existing ones. I think I'm spoiled now. If your not familiar with OPT, I can also highly recommend them. They ship very fast, and answer all my questions promptly.
Hyperion aspheric 36 mm
I have owned other Hyperions, also own the Pentax Zoom 6.5-19.5 mm and Hyperion Zoom, but this Hyperion aspheric excels in low power views with sharp views in almost 75 % of the field, excellent contrast, world class multicoatings ( no internal or external reflections , space-walk experience, a lot of eye reflief and excellent color balance. I think the BEST BUY for for wide fields.
