The all new Mark III Baader Hyperion Zoom with 2.25x Barlowlens
This all new Mark III Hyperion Zoom eyepiece features a screw off rubber eyecup for direct SLR connection. It also features a small rubber eye rest as well as a large twist up eyerest.
This Baader Hyperion 8-24mm Zoom eyepiece has a continuously variable focal length with click-stops at 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24mm and remains parfocal across the zoom range. Field of view varies from 50 degrees at 24mm to a generous 68 degrees at 8mm. As with all zoom eyepieces, eye relief varies with magnification, from 12mm to a comfortable 15mm.
The Hyperion zoom is built to an extremely high standard with smooth and precise zoom movement, quality finish and of course the latest PHANTOM-GROUP Multi-Coatings for maximum contrast and detail. There is also an adjustable height rubber eye guard to suit any user and magnification.
The 31.7mm chropme barrel accepts 31.7mm filters and in addition has a safety groove for safe attachment to your instrument.
The Baader Hyperion Zoom Barlow quickly attaches to any Hyperion 8-24mmm Clickstop zoom eyepiece, instantly converting it into a 3.5-10.5mm Zoom. The matched optical design results in a virtually transparent 2.25X multiplication, without any optical compromises, essentially giving a 7X zoom range with outstanding optical performance throughout the 3.5-24mm range.
