Binos and hyperion 24s
Posted 11 May 2013 - 12:42 AM
so, in lieu of that fact I went looking for another source of EPs in 24mm length, wide fov, with 20mm of eye relief, in a 1.25" barrel. what I have come up with so far has been the Hyperions. These seem to be some interesting EPs. I am fairly sure someone has used these and wondered what their opinion of them was. and also if anybody new of some other premium EPs in the same configuration.
ps by the way, the 12 nags work fine! I'll get back to that later today.

I have not owned the 24mm Panoptics, but I have owned both the ES 68s in 20mm and 16mm, and the 19mm and 22mm Pans, and I found both of them better at the edgoe of the field.
In my EdgeHD 8" the 24mm Hyperions are actually pretty decent, but again, not as sharp and the ESs.
If you need eye relief though, there really isn't a better alternative than the Hyperions I think
I believe Orion and Vixen have similar eyepeices to the Hyperion, but I doubt that the edge performance is any better.
And by the way. I own the 17mm and 13mm Hyperions and they do perform a bit better on the edges than the 24mm.
