About this product

Model:  morpheus_ep_14mm
Part Number:  2954214

Baader Morpheus eyepieces offer a wide 76° field of view with pin-sharp stars edge to edge, even with fast telescopes. 

Rare-earth glass elements and ‘Phantom’ optical coatings on all air-to-glass surfaces provide maximum light transmission. 

Blackened lens edges and interior enhance contrast and minimise ghosting. 

Long eye-relief and soft silicon-rubber eyecups make them comfortable to use, even when wearing spectacles. 

Sealed watertight housing protects the interior from dust and moisture. 

Glow in the dark photo-luminescent markings make it easier to identify the correct focal length. Also, a short lightstroke with a flashlight will have the letters shine for up to three minutes so - even in total darkness - Morpheus-eyepieces can be easily found when lost on the ground. 



Designed to be as compact and lightweight as possible so an excellent choice for use with binoviewers. Also incorporates an M43 thread so suitable for photo/video. 

A new ‘Safety Kerfs’ finish (ridged surface) has been applied to both 1.25” and 2” barrels to prevent the eyepiece slipping in the focuser draw tube. 

Supplied with winged eyecup and a ‘quick-draw holster’ storage pouch that can be worn on a belt. 


Optical Features

  • Full field Sharpness: Sharp flat 76° field is unsurpassed by any other modern Super-Wide-Angle eyepiece. On-axis sharpness and contrast rivals Baader's best planetary eyepieces, while delivering nearly equivalent performance over the full field. Stars remain pinpoints as you move away from centre and the field remains flat and in focus, even in short focus telescopes.
  • Long Eye Relief: Delivers close to 20 mm of eye relief which, together with soft silicon-rubber eyecups, provides a comfortable viewing experience. Even when wearing eyeglasses.
  • Low Distortion: The Morpheus optical design delivers exceedingly low distortion (angular magnification distortion). Planets and lunar features retain Their shapes as they transit the field and the true field sizes are close to theoretical. 
  • Immersive Views: The subjective 'spacewalk' feeling is not only a function of field of view. Interestingly, some wide-field eyepieces with fields of 82 degrees fail to deliver the same viewing experience as others with similar fields, or even some with smaller fields. Eye Relief (and the related large eye lens size) and ease of viewing (a combination of long eye relief and control of aberrations) also play a part. With this in mind Baader designed their Morpheus eyepieces to deliver a truly "immersive" viewing experience.
  • Phantom Coatings:  First developed for the Hyperion series, Baader's Phantom Group optical coatings have been Further optimised for use in the Morpheus range and index-matched to each of the different glasses.
  • Internal Baffling: As with all Baader Planetarium eyepieces, the internal design has been ray-traced and baffled to eliminate the effects of stray-light.

Mechanical Features

  • Optimised for Binoviewing: Every last bit of space has been squeezed out of the main body to reduce it's diameter making it an excellent choice for use with binoviewers (more space between the eyepieces for your nose!).
  • Weight reduction: Unnecessary weight has also been reduced. Most of the weight of a Morpheus eyepiece is the glass lens elements! The body has also been sealed to prevent dust and moisture reaching the inner lenses.
  • Foldable Eyecups: Soft silicon-rubber foldable eye guards (see images below) provide comfort and assist in eye spacing. A special winged eyecup is also supplied which shields against stray light.
  • Safety Features: Baader have applied their new 'Safety Kerfs' surface to the 1.25" and 2" barrels to prevent the eyepiece inadvertently slipping out of the focuser. The numerous shallow Kerfs provide additional grip and security when compared to regular smooth-sided barrels, without 'catching' on the focuser's brass compression-ring (a problem sometimes associated with wide milled safety undercuts). Morpheus eyepieces also feature a waffle-patterned rubber handgrip for secure handling.
  • Photo-Video: Like their Hyperion siblings, all Morpheus eyepieces make excellent image projection optics. A hidden M43 photo-video eye lens thread permits use of Baader's extensive range of Hyperion Digital T-Rings for direct-thread attachment of practically any imaging device.

Morpheus 12.5 EP
Thursday, 17 June 2021  | 

Did the usual should I, shouldn't I read the reviews of SGL and as soon as Flo got some in bought one, really impressed with the clarity, the veil has been lifted from my eyes and I will be adding to my collection.
As usual thanks to Flo for their 100% professional service.

12.5mm Morpheus
Monday, 29 March 2021  | 

This eyepiece line really is quite remarkable, in that it offers spectacular views that are both seriously immersive, and supremely comfortable. The 76 apparent field is just about the maximum field the eye can take in at once, and so is comfortable for lengthy viewing sessions. The 12.5mm, which I bought from FLO and which was delivered the next working day, was bought as a medium power deep sky eyepiece for use in my 4" apo refractor, and it doesn't disappoint. The star images are exquisite and the image clarity a joy to behold. When fully dark adapted viewing through the Morpheus leaves a lasting impression, with nebulae both bright and dark, appearing almost in 3D against the finest, almost limitless, diamond dust starry background. After spending over 40 years as a visual observer and having used many of the great eyepieces offered by TeleVue and Pentax, the Morpheus is something very special in comparison, and at a fraction of the cost.

Morpheus Range
Friday, 12 March 2021  | 

Ive been using the full range now for about 12 months now and its safe to say that I wont be looking for any replacements and that includes the famous expensive alternatives. These eyepieces are outstanding with comfortable eye relief and sharp immersive views across a wide field of view. Its difficult to pick out a favorite but the 9mm is excellent and the 4.5mm is great for planetary viewing, good magnification and contrast with a wide field of view

Morpheus 4.5mm - another stunner!
Thursday, 1 October 2020  | 

This is my third Morpheus, and it performs exactly as hoped. I wanted a little bit more mag for my 76mm refractor, and this new eyepiece gives me a tad over 120x. It made Mars really pop, and delivered the clearest, most detailed view of the planet's surface that I've seen so far. Love it! And it arrived very swiftly, thanks to FLO's excellent service - thanks guys!

Morpheus 6.5mm- wow
Monday, 13 July 2020  | 

We finally had a fleeting high pressure this weekend so along with photographing comet neowise, I also couldn't wait to try out my new eyepiece- the 6.5mm Morpheus. This is the first Morpheus eyepiece I've bought and despite being quite low in the sky, the views it gave me of Jupiter and Saturn were incredible. Indeed I was able to observe the cloud belts of Jupiter and Saturn and I could easily see the cassini division in the rings. I own a tracking dob so I was also able to use this to observe M13 and hold it in the view. My jaw nearly hit the floor at what this eyepiece revealed! The eye relief was very comfortable and the eyepiece, although feeling nice and solid was not too heavy. Suffice to say I now want the set!

Morpheus eyepiece addiction
Tuesday, 24 September 2019  | 

My first of the range was the 9mm. I wanted 100x in my 900mm telescopes. When I started using the 9mm, its immersive views, decent eye relief for wearing glasses and sharpness across the field of view, was a winning combination.

Next I bought the 17.5mm. It is as pleasant and eye-friendly to use as the 9mm, singly or in a bino-viewer.

Over a period of time, I added the other 4 focal lengths; 12.5, 6.5, 14 & 4.5mm.

Baader's Morpheus range is now my main 1.25 inch eyepiece choice, well worth the investment.

Cracking eyepiece, great value!
Tuesday, 24 July 2018  | 

I've wanted to try this new Morpheus since I bought a 14mm a couple of years back. That one was MUCH better optically than my Pentax XW14 - and I sold the Pentax having compared both closely. The new 17.5mm has been much anticipated with a long lead in time...but they have got it just right and crucially, they have vastly improved the poor, thin rubber eyecup which was the one significant fault with an otherwise superb optic.

The new 17.5mm came with two eyecups, which now thread on to the top of the eyepiece body - so much better than the previous system. I believe that this new eyecup design is being phased in to all newly manufactured stocks and may be available as a retro-fit accessory for older versions.

The view is wonderful through this eyepiece - very immersive and with superb contrast, colour and sharpness. It's sharp across over 95% of the field in my Takahashi F8 - or putting it another way, it is sharper across a wider field than the whole field of a Pentax XW - I estimate that around 73 degrees of the 76 are very very sharp, but the whole 76 degree field is pleasing and very immersive.

I believe FLO still have some sizes on offer at 149 - by any measure that is great value. Highly recommended!

Baader Morpheus 17.5mm First Light - the eyepiece I've been waiting years for!
Monday, 23 July 2018  | 

The following review is actually an email I sent to some fellow astronomers having had first light with the Morpheus 17.5mm eyepiece. I have been a visual observer for over 45 years, and having astigmatism have to observe with my glasses on.

I had first light at night time with this in the early hours, didnt get back from work until late yesterday evening (Moon was already too low) and I was tired and hungry so had a snack and a rest before venturing out.

In summary, absolutely delighted, met my hopes and expectations and then some more. Could easily see the field edge to edge with specs, and this was a little back from the eyepiece. Massive eye lens of 37mm, its like looking through a huge window. First time in my observing career Ive been able to make use of any eyepiece with more than 70 degree field, quite a moment for me. Far far better than any 82 degree and up eyepiece I have ever used or tried to use. The 76 degree field is very immersive, and seems a big difference from anything in the 70 degree class. Reminiscent of looking through the 28mm RKE only with a vastly wider field. Star images sharp across the field ( x47, 1.8 degrees ) in the David Levy telescope (Mak-Newt f4.8 ). Contrast excellent, great views of the double cluster, the Coat Hanger, M31 and companions and the Pleiades. All of these objects with the exception of M31 of course fitted completely into the field of view. I last looked at the double cluster at around 2.15am and the amount of stars visible in a very average and brightening sky was far better than I expected.
I've never been so excited about an eyepiece. I've waited a long time for an eyepiece with more than a 70 degree field where I can easily see all the field in one go and not have to turn my head to see the whole field. Its easy to see why William Paolin* rates it so highly. So do I, best eyepiece Ive owned. It's a revelation.
