Baader Hyperion Aspheric

Postby The Lazy Saint » Fri Sep 15, 2017 9:31 am

Hi all.
I have a Skywatcher Skyliner 200p (f/6 l believe) and have recently purchased the Baader Hyperion zoom lens which l am quite happy with. I am now looking towards an eyepiece of 30mm + for observing DSO's. I rather like the Hyperion Aspheric eyepices and, to me, it seems a good idea to keep to the Hyperion brand. However, l cant seem to find a great deal of information on them, unlike the rest of the range. Is this perhaps because they are unpopular? Has any member of the forum got experience of the Aspheric eyepiece?
Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes.
The Lazy Saint

I don't have any aspheric eyepieces, but they are supposed to be very good, albeit rather expensive. (The 2 tend to go together! :) ) Your telescope is 'fast' (f/5.9?) It should take a 30mm eyepiece, but be careful pushing the size too far as vignetting can occur. A reputable dealer would be able to tell you what to expect.
I use an 11" Celestron SCT (CPC 1100) on an equatorial wedge, with an 80mm refractor as a guidescope. They are housed in a 2.2m Pulsar observatory. I use a ZWO ASI1600MC for imaging.

I'm not telling you what to do BUT ...

Rather than spending a lot of money on an eyepiece, you may find a good pair of binoculars worth considering. To be honest, I've got loads of eyepieces that barely see daylight, as I've been drawn to the dark side of astrophotography.
How can I be one with the universe when we don't know what 96% of it is.

I have the 36mm Baader Aspheric EP. Super bit of kit.
