How are the views and field of view through the 10mm please David? I have a tough choice between fixed eps or getting the zoom.

 

Thanks.

I use Hyperions, various FLs and have the Mk3 zoom.

The 10mm gives excellent views in all but the fastest scopes. Very enjoyable 68deg AFOV and crisp views.
Provided the 'jam jar' size and weight eyepiece is not too much weight for a tiny scope you can't really go wrong.
At this price even if you don't like the eyepiece (which is unlikely in my opinion) you can sell it on for in effect loss of postage costs.

If you become a Hyperion addict, then by fitting (low cost) tuning rings you can alter FL. You can leave off the bottom lens, but this degrades image quality.

The zoom gives good results. Particularly when compared to the lower cost zooms.
But like all zooms, the AFOV reduces as you zoom in.
It goes from a panoramic 68deg to a 'plossl' type 50deg or so.

For astro use, fixed Hyperions are better. For terrestrial, the zoom is nice.

Just my opinion. From a person with no formal optical qualifications. But a bundle of Hyperions I have had for a few years and do not plan to sell anytime soon!

There used to be an excellent download on the Baader site showing how versatile the Hyperions are.

Hope this helps, David.

Thanks to you both, especially Sub Dwarf for that insight! Advice from people who have owned them is always valuable.

 

Hope you all have a good evening.
