The Hyperion ClickStop Zoom Eyepiece with 1" and 2" Connector

There is an old saying that there is nothing like an eyepiece with fixed Focal length, if it should be the highest image quality. But this zoom eyepiece is second to none fixed focal length eyepieces, saving especially during mobile use so you don't have to carry many eyepieces around.

The Hyperion Universal Zoom is a perfect solution for all hunter, birdwatchers and astronomers alike, it brings a whole range with focal lengths from 8 to 24mm in a single high-quality eyepiece! It lets you continuously zoom with Clickstops at 8, 12, 16, 20 and 24mm. The only difference to the fixed focal length is that the field also varies from 53 Degrees at 24mm focal length up to 68 degrees at 8mm. This eyepiece was "Reverse" constructed unlike most other zoom eyepieces: largest field of view and the sharpest image at the highest magnification.

Hyperion zoom Barlow lens - 2.25x

The 2.25x Baader Hyperion Zoom Barlow lens was designed especially to complement the Hyperion Zoom eyepiece. It converts the regular focal lengths of 8 to 24 mm to a range of focal lengths between 3,6 and 10,7 mm, while retaining the outstanding image quality for observing sun, moon, planets and double stars with high resolution.

The Mark IV Zoom, in conjunction with or without the Hyperion Barlow, covers all focal lengths between 3.6 to 24 mm.

The Hyperion Barlow works with every Hyperion 8-24 mm Zoom eyepiece ever produced. The barlow is attached onto the 1"-nosepiece. Because of the dual nosepiece of the Mark IV, it can be used at telescopes with 1" or 2" eyepiece clamps.

The Hyperion Barlow comes with a T-2 thread-adapter, to mount the Barlow in front of any camera or other accessories with T-2-threads. Combine it e.g. with a DSLR-camera in this way the camera body will be equipped with a 1 " nosepiece. The camera body just needs a standard T-ring to fit it onto any 1 eyepiece holder.

Attach the lens unit without the Barlow-adapter (A) directly onto many 1" eyepieces, whenever they do not already have an integrated barlow element. The result is a 2x Barlow with very good optical properties.

Superb all-rounder
03 June 2021  | 

The Mark IV Hyperion Zoom is a fantastic eyepiece for astro use as well as turning any small refractor into a versatile spotting scope for birds and wildlife. In combination with the included Barlow lens you get a hugely versatile package offering wide angle views of starfields through to close ups of the Moon and planets that push the limits of your telescope. It's very well made with lots of eye relief. The zoom mechanism is beautifully smooth with easy to feel and usefully placed click stops. Not the cheapest eyepiece around, but its optical quality and focal length range make it a steal at this price.
