  19.   17,5 mm Morpheus® 76° widefield eyepiece

    17,5 mm Morpheus® 76° widefield eyepiece

    # 2954217

    € 245.00 Price excl. German VAT tax (19%): € 205.88
    • Full field sharpness: The sharp flat 76° field is unsurpassed by any other modern wide field eyepiece. On-axis sharpness and contrast rivals our best planetary eyepieces, while delivering nearly equivalent performance over the full field.
    • Long Eye Relief and optimized for bino-viewing: Morpheus pushes the envelope of comfortable wide field viewing further than ever before, delivering close to 20mm of eye relief
    • Low Distortion: The Morpheus optical design delivers exceedingly low distortion (angular magnification distortion)
    • Photo-Video Adaption: Like their Hyperion siblings, all Morpheus eyepieces make superb imaging projection optics with the M43 thread
    • New Features since January 2018:
      • Metal / Rubber eyecup: The folding rubber eyecup now comes with an integral M43 threaded metal ring (this accounts for the complete line of Morpheus-eyepieces). The threaded attachment enables the eyecup to stay soft and compliant, while keeping the eyecup securely attached to the eyepiece while folding it up or down.
      • M43/M43 extension: all Morpheus eyepieces now include the M43 extension #2954250. It is used for optimizing the position of the eyecup in setting the personal viewing position as well as for adapting a camera with M43-thread (eg. Sony / Panasonic). In addition this extension serves also as clamping surface for smartphone holders
      • 10-page manual: a manual with many application examples and a list of optional accessories (similar to the Hyperion manual) is included (also under Tab "Downloads")
      • Focal-Length Indicator-Clips: these stainless steel clips can be attached e.g. to the eyepiece holster and one or more of the little indicator fingers is bent upward - according to the focal length used. In this way the user experiences a taktile ("braille"-equivalent) sensation, being able to identify each eyepiece without looking and without using a flashlight

    17.5mm Morpheus® Review

    We appreciate the positive feedback we have received so far. With 3 years of additional development time - the Morpheus 17.5mm was also the most elaborate eyepiece project we had ever started.
    A detailed Morpheus 17.5mm test report has now been published by William Paolini in the most popular astro forums. We are very happy about his extremely positive conclusion and would like to quote the following line:

    The latest Baader addition to the Morpheus eyepiece line up comes across to my eye like they saved the best for last.

    In general the comments on the Morpheus 17.5 and the improvements to the complete eyepiece series (new eyecups with integrated metal threaded ring, index clip, etc.) in the popular forums are quite positive. We would like to pick out the following forum post / test report: https://www.cloudynights.com/topic/609523-baader-morpheus-175mm-televue-delos-173mm-user-impressions/
