About this product
Part Number: 2454602
Starter Set includes: 5, 10, 17 & 24mm Hyperion eyepieces and sturdy eyepiece case.
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.
Excellent performance at a remarkable price!

I'm very much a believer in that you get what you pay for and these eyepieces are no exception. At £100 each you get a solid lump of metal that will immediately feel superior to any cheaper pieces you may have. The ability to switch between 1.25 inch and 2 inch is extremely useful, I can scan at 2 inch for greater views and then switch back to a 1.25 to fit the specialist filters I have for that size. Using a cheap £10 moon filter and the 5mm on a 12 inch skywatcher flextube in 1.25 inch, I was able to observe a canyon on one of the lunar seas in addition to exceptionally good views of the myraids of craters.
The 24mm is an excellent broad scanning piece for your wide field viewing.
17mm was a surprising gem amongst the 4 pieces and a good go to when doing some general viewing of the moon during setup and for star scanning beyond the wide field.
10mm I've not used too much but it works as you'd expect for an intermediate piece.
5mm renders a superior view for your high mag views.
I'm quite an amateur still and I defer to others with more experience. However, the eyepieces are far better than the BST explorer piece I had on my starter scope and that was a good quality piece for half the price.
To sum up, they're worth the price but its the versatility that really stands out.
Oh the case and leather bags and everything else is exceptional, almost too far in terms of quality. Cheers Germany!
