Baader 1.25" & 2" Hyperion Eyepiece - 17mm # HYP-17 2454617
5.0
Best EP on the market for the price!
What can you say about German engineering! This EP is crisp out to the edges with no distortion. At [$] an EP as compared to a Tele Vue at over $500 there is no comparison in my book. I have looked through a Tele Vue and yes while it gives a pictu...

Great Eyepiece
The Baader Planetarium Hyperion series are stellar in every way. The 5mm was my first EP of this series. Construction is very sturdy and the coatings are second to none. Be aware the 5mm and 3.5mm EP's may over power your scope so choose with care. Y...

Agena Astro 30mm UWA EP
This is a great EP for the money and it gives beautiful wide field views in a slow focal ratio scope. I haven't compared it to the TV Nagler 31 or UWAN 28 but I'm very satisfied with it. The only problem with it is some softness towards the edge of t...

This thing works!
I bought this as I didn't have a 2" eyepiece that I was satified with for use with my 14" F/4.7 (fast) dob. While it shows a little distortion at the edges, it is flat with pinpoint stars across most of the field. Better than my 2" MK70 and my Koni...

Baader 1.25" & 2" Hyperion Eyepiece - 8mm # HYP-8 2454608
5.0
Nice Eyepiece!
I bought this after I purchased their 21mm and liked it. Like the 21mm, this gives a broad flat field with pinpoint stars out to near the edge with my 14" F/4.7 Dob. I can see a bit of distortion at the edge, but less than my other eyepieces. That...

A real bargain
For the modest price, this EP performs well. But keep the price in mind. I was looking for public star party eyepieces and wanted a WOW fov as so many people use plossls for public use and nobody says WOW. This eyepiece is very good almost to the ed...

Nice bright & wide field -my favorite EP
This is my first wide angle eyepiece, and I've only tested in in a 8" f/10 SCT (my Nexstar 8 GPS), but it is my favorite eyepiece by far. Some people have warned that these eyepieces aren't as sharp as some much pricier ones at the edge, but I haven...

AgenaAstro UWA80 30mm
I bought this after doing some research for a cost effective wide view 2" eyepiece. I found this to be the same e.p. as the the 1rpd and Moonfish for a little less. I purchased it and absolutely love it. I have used it in C11 and C8 SCT scopes. The s...

Baader 8mm Hyperion
For those of you that have trouble buying high dollar eyepieces I would suggest you take a serious look at the 8mm Hyperion. This eyepiece is a great performer on all objects I used it on. While it's definitely not a Nagler or Pentax XL, for the mone...

Great Versatile Eyepiece
Because I've always considered Astronomy a "hobby", I've always looked for a bargain when it came to purchasing accessories for the telescopes I've owned over the years. Thanks to Baader Planetarium, 'm pleased to say I recently bought at least two q...

Best Bang for the Buck
I've used my new 17mm Baader along side of my friends Pan and there was no difference to my eyes. At half the price these eyepieces are the best out there for the price. I can't find any used for more than $10 less than new, then you have shipping to...

Lite Weight Wide FOV
Great views, flat FOV compared to most 68 degree 24mm eyepieces. No blackouts like I used to get from my Celestron X-Cells. And a Large exit lens. Fantastic views, great price. Try one and you'll be hooked. I now have the 24mm, 17mm, and 8mm. As soon...

Great eyepiece
While not a Nagler but nearly as good as a Pan at half the price these eyepieces rock. No better bang for the buck. Actually compaired to my friends Pan or my Baader, with a Paracorr there was no difference that I could see. Not an 80 degree eyepiece...

WOW factor of the Baader Hyperion 17mm
I am always on the lookout for quality EPs for my 12" DOB. As an avid DSO seeker, I felt my EP collection lacking in the medium to low power catagory. While I felt I wasn't quite prepared to invest the price of a Nagler or Ethos, I did want an EP th...

Agena 20 mm UWA 80
This is a good eyepiece for the money. I compared it with my 22 mm Panoptic and my 16 mm Nagler in my Meade AR5 which is F9.3. Although the 20 mm UWA is listed as having an 80 degree FOV, mine appeared to be about 72 degrees, just slightly larger t...
