    Default 36mm Hyperion vs. 35mm Panoptic??



    Anyone use both of these EPs and compared? I need to pick up something in this range. I was wondering if the Hyperion Aspheric is good enough or should I shell out the extra $150 for the Televue.

    Too bad Orion doesn't still make the 35mm Stratus. I'd get it to match my others.

    I haven't used the Hyperion, but I did buy a Televue 35mm Panoptic this summer at a dark-sky star party for use in my 12" Dob and 4" refractor. I was very impressed by the Televue. Well worth the money. It was my first Televue EP, after observing for 10+ years.
