About this product

Model:  hyperion-2
Part Number:  2454605

Baader Hyperion Eyepieces are designed for visual and photographic applications and excel in both fields.

Their modular design fits both 1.25" and 2" focusers and (with an adaptor ring) will accept a camera mounted directly onto the eyepiece.

The Hyperion is a comfortable eyepiece with 20 mm eye-relief and a large field of view that is easily visible, even with eyeglasses. A field of view of 68 degrees is regarded as ideal for astronomical observations and is the largest field of view that can be viewed without strain and without turning your eyes.

Two Baader finetuning rings are also available that fit in-between the eyepiece' removable front negative element and main body to decrease focal length, resulting in higher magnifications.  

Excellent performance at a reasonable price!

I am overall satisfied wit this eyepiece, but it does have a few shortcomings, to me at least. The biggest one being, the blackout that happens when you move your head even a little, so you have to adjust to positioning yourself right when scanning the night sky, cause it's easy to move and lose sight of, well everything really lol. And when you unfold the eyecap, you still have to be a bit further away from it even, cause the eye relief is so big (which might be a selling point to some), so you can't press your eye against it. Also, when using it as a 2", 32.2mm eyepiece it doesn't keep the same field of view, but it decreases significantly (I compared it my 30mm 68 degree SuperView). Other than that, it does give some very nice views. I haven't noticed any astigmatism in my f8 dob, just some slight coma towards the edges, which does become more pronounced when using it as a 32.2mm, but not to the extent that it ruins the view. Sharpness and contrast are good, and I prefer the views I get through it than the 30mm SuperView or the Svbony zoom piece I have. Also, the size of the lens you're looking through makes it really feel like you're looking through a space ship window and not an eyepiece, really immersive.

Excellent eyepieces. Highly recommended (This review is for 24mm)
07 October 2022  | 

This is my 2nd Hyperion eyepiece now. I now have the 13mm and 24mm and using these in conjunction with a 90mm/800mm f/8.8 refractor. From my own perspective, I would not hesitate to recommend these to anyone looking to upgrade their current eyepieces. They are excellent quality glass and providing excellent field of view. The price point for these might seem steep at first, but recognise that a) you only really need 2/3 good eyepieces with a 2x barlow to round out your collection and b) they are a solid investment that will last you years if looked after and can be used with another scope. The only other thing to note is the weight of these for which you will most likely have to take into consideration when balancing the scope. As usual, great service from FLO. Very well packaged and delivered promptly.

For the price to pay and even though a beginner in astronomy this is amazing bang for your buck, in the past using such brands as Leica I'm aware of what good optics are like and this really is very good. The 10mm was ordered and it gives fantastic eye relief so for all the poor unfortunates like me that have to leave your specs on the is the very fellow for you, it's quite heavy, very well made and the image is crisp and sharp. As for Flo came across this firm by accident and what a god send they have been with their generously given time, patience and expertise a thing us beginners rely on to make the right decisions in our purchases.

Excellent eyepiece with good wide field and little or no degradation at the edges. Works well in my 4 F/7 and F/9 refractors.

Great fast service from FLO as usual.

Really pleased with the performance of the Baader Hyperion. Using it in the Skywatcher 8" Dobsonian. I would definitely recommend the Hyperion.

21mm eyepiece with 28mm finetuning ring
16 September 2020  | 

These two pieces made the viewing experience so much better than the stock eyepieces that came with my telescope.
Tested last night and got great views of Jupiter and Saturn.
Delivery was prompt and items where carefully packaged.
Would recommend FLO and will shop here again.

Very nice bunch of eyepieces at a good price
05 August 2020  | 

I have 6 of the Baader Hyperion 68 Degree Eyepieces (24mm is the only one I do not own) and I am very happy with all of them.
I like that they can be used with both 1.25" and 2" focuser drawtubes. Also they provide very nice views and I have a T2 ring which makes it very easy to do eyepiece projection photography.
