“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe

Quote:Can anyone comment on false color
Quote:I would say that viewing through these EPs is very comfortable, possibly more so than the through the ES 82-deg eyepieces
Quote:How do the 3.5 & 5mm Hyperions rate as planetary eyepieces for eyeglass wearers?
Quote:I have Hyperions down to 8mm for DSO work, and the TMB Planetary II's from 6mm down for lunar/planetary and double star work, and so far I've been very pleased.
Quote:But I can tell I'm going to have to move to real glasses from my reading glasses not too far out and planning ahead. I've been experimenting using my reading glasses, and find the Hyperions are a bit easier to view while wearing glasses than the TMB's. So I'm hoping they're at least a satisfactory planetary eyepiece.
