I am also deliberating about the Hyperion Zoom, although due to the fact that you don't get the 68 degrees fov that you do with the fixed focal length I am still wondering about it. The comments about it being a brilliant piece of kit, but I already own a 24mm fixed focal length Hyperion and was/am considering getting one in the 8/10mm range. Then along comes the zoom and throws everything up in the air again.

Don't you love/hate astro gear. It is impossible to make a choice sometimes.

They are good eye pieces but they are being rushed out at the mo because of demand so be careful as I'm on my 3rd 1 now they seem to go very

Stiff or very loose and then fall apart q/c is not good at the mo my last 1 is a ok along with there barlow it a good combo

I bought one last week. So far, so good. Tonight i stumbled across the trio in Leo (hey that rhymes) using the 24mm setting. Still looked good right upto 12mm. 8mm wasnt so good, but thats not the EP fault.

Maybe we should start 2 new threads ... love the Hyperion zoom ... hate the Hyperion zoom, see which one wins. It really does seem to be the Marmite E.P. :-)

Love It! (marmite too)

They are great zooms unless they break - then you hate them :)

This is why I have decided not to bother despite being sold on the idea of an 8-24 zoom. There are far to many people complaining of the zoom ceasing before and after the warranty expires.
