    I also have had my MK III for a while now...in fact it was my third EP that I bought after the Baader 21 and 8mms.
    Those two have fallen off to the side as I have outfitted with the Explore Scientific line BUT the zoom still holds a place in my EP case. I aquired the zoom barlow to compliment it and changes what was an 8-24mm to a 3.5-10.5mm planetary zoom. This the way to go! From 3.5mm to 24mm with ONE EP?
    You just gotta love it!

    Regards

    I have been considering the Baader 2.25x zoom barlow mentioned above ever since I got the EP and I might still go for it. However, playing around today I discovered the Celestron kit 2x barlow will screw on via the filter threads. It's not as high quality, but hopefully it'll tide me over for a bit...I think I have Hyperion fever or something, though.

    Apparently, if you own another Hyperion you can remove its front lens element and screw it onto the front of Hyperion Zoom, and it'll function as a 2x barlow. I haven't tried it yet.
