  • Description

    The Baader Planetarium 31mm and 36mm Hyperion Aspheric modular eyepieces are the world’s first astronomical eyepieces to use aspheric surfaces.  This new technology eliminates eyepiece aberrations without the usual penalty of extra lens elements, excessive size and weight, or high cost.  

    Two barrel sizes are included with these innovative eyepieces, allowing you the flexibility of using them in both 1.25 inch and 2 inch focusers.  The standard 2” barrel displays the full 72 degree field of view, and the special wide-field 1.25 inch barrel provides the maximum true field ever in a 1.25 inch format, with a field stop size of 32mm!

    Long eye relief for extreme comfort while viewing

    The Baader Hyperion Aspheric eyepiece offers freedom from blackouts, kidney beaning, and lack of distortion.   The design also provides long eye relief, and produces a view that is uncommonly comfortable and natural for all users—even eyeglass wears and those who like to use devices that correct for astigmatism.

    72 degree flat field of view

    The ultra-wide 72° field of both the 31mm and the 36mm Hyperion-Aspheric is extremely flat and distortionless.  It is virtually free of angular magnification distortion, providing you with unparalleled views of the Universe.  Phantom Group Multi-Coatings are applied to the optics to increase transmission and contrast, and thorough internal baffling keeps light from scattering.

     Baader Hyperion-Aspheric eyepieces are perfect for projection imaging

    The Hyperion-Aspherics are threaded to accept the full line of Hyperion Digital T-Rings, for a robust direct attachment of almost any camera.  The clever use of 2 inch x 24 tpi SCT threads on the eyepiece body allows either the 31mm Hyperion-Aspheric or the 36mm Hyperion-Aspheric to be threaded directly onto the rear cell of popular Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes.  This results in the highest rigidity possible for imaging, and makes for one of the most flexible eyepieces on the market today.
