The Baader Planetarium Hyperion 68° Modular Eyepieces offer world-class performance and unique photo-visual features, at an unheard of price.

Not just a different branded version of their highly regarded cousins, the Hyperions have been totally redesigned to deliver better transmission and contrast.
