We will publish information on the new Zoom version in mid January. It will be available for sale on our website and at our dealers around end of January.
I also want to use other eyepieces. How do I know the right distance between fieldstop position and the MPCC?
DetailsHyperion Zoom Modular EyepieceContinous magnification with ClickStop at 8/12/16/20/24 mm The Hyperion Zoom can easily function at 8/12/16/20/24 mm, which enables quick and easy adjustment of these five focal lengths. This is especially important for the use of stereoscopic binocular approaches as you can set the desired magnification without looking at two parallel eyepieces quickly. Adjust by rotation of the "ClickStop" rotor for perfect control of the zoom level.
Hyperion Mark III ClickStop Zoom
with 1¼" and 2" nosepieces
Usually, zoom lenses are credited with not so good quality. That's right. Most zoom eyepieces should be as inexpensive as possible and are therefore optically calculated for low magnification, and then the magnification is pulled up by displacement of the individual lens groups - which naturally suffers resulting image quality.
The reason for the success of our Hyperion zoom eyepiece, is that it is constructed the other way around. The optical polishing and the quality of all lens groups in the eyepiece is optimized and calculated for the highest magnification. There, the eyepiece is also its greatest apparent field because if you "zoom back" an object, is naturally also the visual field are greater - to remain clear.
Worldwide, the Mark III zoom eyepiece is popular with nature watchers, bird watchers and astronomers. It is also the only zoom eyepiece, which has been consistently designed and optimized for binocular observation.
The eyepiece is so variable provided that it is in all contemporary astronomical telescopes, but also to many spotting scopes already used in the basic equipment.
Connection Options and Delivery
The Hyperion zoom Mark III comes with two removable receptacles (1¼ "and 2"), as well as the internal thread M45 for connection to all Zeiss Diascope spotting scopes. With part of the included adaptor of M45/M36.44 the Zeiss can be tapped in an M36.4 (1¼ ") to convert the internal thread so that the Hyperion zoom therefore can connect to many Celestron scopes and other related brands. The second power adapter (in the image already on the 2 "socket mounted) converts the M45 Zeiss thread in a 2" connector to connect each Astro telescope.
More adaptions of other spotting scope brands are in preparation.
Camera Mounted Terminals
The universal photo system thread M43 for all standard video cameras is exposed by unscrewing the adjustable eye edition. For the same M43 thread, we offer a variety of adapter rings on all common camera thread, e.g. the transition ring #2958080 by M43 on T-2 (M42 x 0.75). All T-rings for all commonly used DSLR cameras fit this T-2 thread system.
A further connection capability offers the SP54-system thread-in the form of the Hyperion DT ring system. For this system, there are the transition ring M43/SP54 #2958086 suitable to the Mark III zoom eyepiece. This adapter enables the connection of all common camera lenses on the Hyperion zoom to use it for Eyepiece Projection. The connection rings from this system, see our section "Eyepiece accessories" (Hyperion DT rings).
Three different eye conditions are included in the basic equipment of the eyepiece.
- A height-adjustable eye pad with locking function, which covers the M43 photo thread.
- A foldable Eyecup, which can be placed directly over the M43 thread.
- An eyecup with page light aperture, which is especially important for binocular observation, to be able to concentrate fully on the image.
