QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • The descriptions all state that ,for example, Baader 5mm Hyperion Modular Eyepiece - 1.25"/ 2"eyepiece can be changed to a longer lens, but to what?  I cannot find any table that specifies what the change in magnification is for the eyepieces.

    The chart is listed on the fine tuning rings on OPT's website: http://www.optcorp.com/pdf/Baader/FineTuneRingChart.jpg. This chart is older and includes all of the eyepieces except the newer 10mm.
