Baader T-Adapter HTA43/T2 for Hyperion Fixed Focal Length and MkIII Zoom Eyepiece # 2958080

Product Info

Manufacturer Description

The Baader Hyperion Digital T-adapter # HTA43/T-2 2958080 permits direct coupling of any T-threaded camera or accessory to Baader's Hyperion eyepieces. The Hyperion fixed focal length eyepieces or the new Mark-III 8-24mm zoom eyepiece feature a male M43 thread under the rubber eyeguard. This adapter converts this 43mm thread at the eyelens of the Hyperions to a male T/ T2 thread (M42x0.75).

This enables the Hyperions to be used with CCD and DSLR cameras for classic eyepiece projection photography. With this adapter, any T-2 extension tubes (sold separately) can also be used in-between the eyepiece and camera to project and magnify the image as much as desired. The threaded direct-coupling makes this system extremely rigid and compact.

This adapter is compatible with the following eyepieces:

  • Fixed focal length Hyperion eyepieces: 3.5mm, 5mm, 8mm, 13mm, 17mm, 21mm, and 24mm
  • MkIII Hyperion Zoom eyepiece
  • Hyperion Aspheric eyepieces: 31mm and 36mm

Please note that this adapter cannot be used with the older Baader MkII Zoom Eyepiece (only the new MKIII version).

Note: Baader refers to this product as HTA43/T-2, SP43/T-2 or M43/T-2. They are all one and the same.

      5.0 It works great

      Pros:

      Cons:

      Comments:

      This adapter allows me to connect my Baader Hyperion Zoom Mark IV and Baader Hyperion 13mm to my Canon camera, using a T adapter. It holds the camera well and it feels the camera is securely attached to my telescope. It was all I was expecting. I would recommend to anyone wanting to do projection astro photography.

      Cons:

      Comments:

      Afocal projection for my revolution imager was easy with the purchase of this adapter, the /T-2 Budget Eyepiece Holder, and the Baader T2 Extension Tube - 7.5mm . Just screwed them on top of my Hyperion 17mm and popped in the video camera. Worked great for showing moon images at a star party.

      5.0 Serious Baader stuff

      Pros:

      Accurate,Lightweight,Compact,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      The OEM option to adapt a T2 camera setup on a Baader Hyperion eyepiece.
      Using it on the 8-24 zoom, this is really versatile.
      Remember to buy a 30mm or 40mm T2 extension ring or sensor illumiation will be quite bad with a DSLR.

      This is my second purchase on agenaastro, they are very professional and sell high quality stuff to the lower price. This adapter allow reflex to adapt to the Hyperion Zoom (that I bought from them 2 years ago). Shipping was very quickly and the product is very good, very simple to use and really make me enjoy my nights as observer!
      I would definitely recommend this product!

      4.0 Must have for eyepiece projection

      Pros:

      Easy to Use,Compact,Lightweight,Strong Construction

      Cons:

      Comments:

      You will need this to adapt your Baader eyepiece for projecting magnified images onto your CCD for astronomical photography. It screws on the eye lens end and adapts to T-2 threads for attaching extension tubes between the eyepiece and your CCD camera. This method provides a mechanically stiff connection between the telescope and the camera, reducing flexure and image blurring. The price is reasonable, and the quality is very good.

      Pros:

      Accurate,Easy to Use

      Cons:

      Comments:

      I was looking for a better setup (camera and eyepice) for astrophotographs and the adapter allowed me to put together my two "jewels of crown": the Canon Rebel T3i and Hyperion 21 mm.
      This setup can be used for planetary as well as DSOs pictures.Just perfect.

      Good fit

      Cons:

      A bit costly

      What can I say? It works. Fit and finish is fine. My only complant is that it's kind of expensive for a simple little piece of machined aluminum.

      Pros:

      Strong Construction,Well crafted

      Cons:

      A case would be nice

      Comments:

      Yet another reinforcement of the flexibility of the Hyperion eyepieces. Three simple steps and your camera is attached to your scope (via a Baader T-adapter and maybe a slected spacer of course). Solid little adapter ring.
