    the task?

    I just picked up a Baader Hyperion 8mm and also ordered the projection adapters both the 54mm and the 43mm

    If this works I should be able to get in nice and close to those craters on the moon with my Canon 450D.

    The Baader eyepiece has a small lens that is 1 1/25 can be un screwed and use the rest of the EP as a 2 inch EP thats around 20mm rather than 8mm.

    really neat eyepiece that should work well as a projection but I wont know until I get the adapters perhaps in a week.
