I don't have the time, dark skies or observing site to warrant using more than a dslr for astro imaging and its substantial cost. The alternative was getting the chip on Canon 750d modified and by a reputable organisation, and it was the best decision in my imaging progress. No problems and the conversion done to very high standards. Despite heavily light polluted skies I can now pick up a Hα signal. The best results require a fair bit of processing, but use a CLS filter or Hα clip filter and it gets a lot easier. Images with 750d, Skywatcher Esprit 80ed f5/400, AVX mount, exposures typically 3-5 minutes iso 1600, greyscale with Hα filter from colour. The downside is the expense, including sending a camera insured to Germany. The conversion was done in about a week.
The binoviewer has got "only" a clicklock eyepiece adapter, so you can't screw the eyepieces directly (and theft-proof) onto the binoviewer. The Clicklock can't be removed, because it also contains the mechanism for the diopter adjustment.
To attach the Hyperion Zoom, we recommend to use the adapter "A" for spotting scopes which is included with the eyepiece, because it saves you some more millimetres of backfocus.

In regards to this style of diagonal, please clarify T-2 fitting?..
Are the threads (standard) for say a 2inch telescope eyepiece that could directly attach to this unit from the bottom barrel of it? Yes or no? .if not what is the diameter/threading of a T-2 fitting?
T-2 means 42mm thread. The mirror has a T-2 outer thread on one side and an inner thread on the other side. These threads are not standard for 2" eyepiece barrels. It is only possible to attach 2" eyepieces by mounting a 2" eyepiece clamp on the mirror. Unfortunately the mirror is not big enough for completely illuminating the field of large 2" eyepieces, for this you should choose the 2" version of the mirror.

are not interchangable. This information is true even for the 1:1.7 Glasspathcorrectors. The differences are not that important for the 1:2.60 Glasspathcorrector, therefore exists only one version of the 1:2.60 Glasspathcorrector for both binocular versions.
