    I never done a collimation on the mirrors... I don't know how to do it, the truth is never searched for that. as for acclimation, yes, I always do that before I use the scope. I've already ordered the 10mm Hyperion( I found one store where they have it), hope I did the right decision. Thank you for your help Hernando!

    Hello Again! I have the hyperion 10mm, the weather although is cloudy i couldn't use it yet . I have a HDR Sony CX105 video camera.I dont know: where can i find an adapter for Hyperion eyepiece? What kind of? The thread of my sony camera is 30 mm.Is there any T ring or something for that? I want to go out on an evening (when the sky gets clear)and take some shots with the camcorder .

    I have the Hyperion 8mm, and have bought the fine tuning rings from Agena Astro. I don't see a 30mm, but would one of these work for you?

    Check out post # 1337 here:

    Hello, from a Hyperion zoom lover!

    Your 10mm should work the same way as the 21mm shown at the bottom of post # 1337, and it uses the Baader M43/T-2 adapter, which then mates with the standard EOS T-ring of DSLR cameras, like that shown in the 1st pic of the post. To be sure if this will work with your Sony videocam, contact Bob Luffel of Alpine Astro, he's a very knowledgeable and friendly/helpful fellow:

    The output of the adapter that Hernando posted is a male T2 thread, you can couple that to a step ring with a female T2 thread on one side and a 30mm filter thread on the other side.

    Hi there!
    I am using a hyperion 68deg 3.5mm on a 10" dob. Images of the planets are very poor.
    With my 2" explore scientific 9mm uwa images are amazingly sharp, but the planets are tiny. With the hyperion they look much bigger but all detail is lost (even jupiters bands are lost). I just collimated as well. scope has 1200mm focal length. Am i just expecting too much from the setup? weather was fine yesterday so i expected better.

    Hi Steve, and welcome to the forum!
    Am afraid that the 3.5mm eyepiece (EP) yields too much power with your scope at 342x, it will be very seldom and rare that the atmosphere stabilizes to allow for such high power, except maybe for a very bright Moon and even then the surface features may still be a bit blurred. An EP in the 5mm to 6mm (200-240x) would probably provide a more useful magnification range. If you have a 2x barlow, you can try barlowing your 9mm UWA (for an equivalent 4.5mm or 266x) and see if the magnification is acceptable and yields a good focus on your targets. Hope this helps.

    Best,

    Hernando
