MARK III Hyperion 8-24mm Clickstop Zoom
The all new premium quality MARK III Baader ClickStop zoom eyepiece.
As with the fixed focal length Hyperions, Baader Planetarium has gone to great lengths to give the Hyperion Zoom the most advanced multicoatings used on an astronomical eyepiece. The Hyperion Phantom Group™ multi-coatings truly offer outstanding sharpness and great colour correction across its 68 degree field of view. The difference in contrast and transmission is clearly visible at the eyepiece.
With Baaders outstanding optical design using a 7 element arrangement it is said the Clickstop Zoom matches the performance of the best fixed focal length eyepieces and is easily comparable to each individual eyepiece in the Hyperion Range!
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 chrome barrel accepts 31.7mm filters and in addition has a safety groove for safe attachment to your instrument
