Our Description

Even If A Certain movie-classic hints otherwise – our Morpheus ® are absolutely real.Featuring a true 76 ° field of view, They immerse you in the Universe without having to roll your eyes. The big eye relief is perfect for observing with glasses and the comfortable viewing- behavior leads to a “Spacewalk feeling” that normally is provided only by eyepieces with a much larger and inaccessible apparent field of view. Meanwhile the image in no way distorted or Appears like viewing through a fishbowl. Center Contrast and brilliance of the finest match Those Planetary eyepieces – while even with the fastest telescope optics you will enjoy tack sharp stars close to the outer edge of the field.

We have put as much effort into the workmanship as into the optical design. Phantom Coating ® Group, rare-earth glasses, sealed watertight housings and blackened lens edges are a Given. Practical design is the prime goal: ie minimum metal weight to keep at bay, optimized for Bino-viewing, photo- video thread – and the all-new 1 ¼ “and 2” “safety-Kerfs” to guard against slipping (no undercut) , In the night you will love the quick draw holster eyepiece and the photo-luminescent engraving.

All Morpheus ® Highlights in to Overview

Optical Features

  • Fullfield Sharpness: The Sharp flat 76 ° field is unsurpassed by any other modern Widefield eyepiece.On-axis sharpness and contrast rivals our best planetary eyepieces, while delivering nearly equivalent performance over the full field. Stars remain diamond pinpoints as you move away from center, and the field remains flat and in focus, even in short focus telescopes.
  • Long Eye Relief: Morpheus pushes the envelope of comfortable viewing Wide Field Further than ever before, delivering close to 20 mm of eye relief alongwith best-in-class optical performance. Eyeglass wearers can comfortably take in the full field, and users of Binoviewers Will Find That Morpheus make the ultimate eyepieces for viewing with two eyes.
  • Low Distortion: The Morpheus optical design delivers exceedingly low distortion (angular magnification distortion). Planets and lunar features retain Their shapes As They transit the field and the true field sizes are close to theoretical. Many companies exaggerate at this point and deliberately use off axis distortion magnification as a Means to advertize blown “apparent” field sizes. You will be able to compare this givenName field size of 76 ° and find it to be the true value, Calculated from the apparent field size and focal length.
  • Immersive Views: As avid observers ourselves, we have Studied the behaviors of most Commonly available Widefield eyepieces and listened to other observers comments on what eyepieces give the most palpable and engaging viewing experience Widefield. What we found is indeed the subjective ‘spacewalk’ feeling is not just a function of field of view. Interestingly, some wide-field eyepieces with fields of 82 degrees failed to deliver the same viewing experience as others with similar fields, or even some with smaller fields. We found two additional primary factors Played into the equation – Eye Relief (and the related large eye lens size) and Ease of Viewing (a combination of long eye relief and control of pupil aberrations). We found so much below 74 degrees did fields tended to have a reduced effect. So, with this information in hand, we set out to design a new eyepiece with a field of view greater than 74 ° did met all of the other optical parameters Necessary to deliver a truly “immersive” viewing experience where the eyepiece Essentially Disappears. The result is Morpheus ® .
  • Phantom Coating ® Group:   Pioneered in the Hyperion lineup, the Phantom Group multi-coatings havebeen Further optimized for use in the Morpheus and index-matched to each of the different glasses.
  • Optimized Internal Baffling: As with all Baader Planetarium eyepieces, the internal mechanicals havebeen fully ray-traced and baffled to eliminate the effects of stray-light.

Mechanical Features

  • Optimized for Binoviewing: Every Last bit of space has been squeezed out of the main body to minimize its size, giving maximum clearance for binoviewing nose.
  • Weight reduction: Every effort has been made ​​to eliminate unnecessary weight – Especially in view of effective binoviewing. The weight of all Morpheus eyepieces are the lenses Essentially inside plus the best protection and water resistance we can supply.
  • Foldable Eyecups: The Morpheus include two soft rubber dual-position foldable eyeguards (see images below). These innovative new eyeguards havebeen developed to Provide the optimal comfort and eye spacing for most users and eye glass wearers. The included special winged version Provides the ultimate comfort and exclusion of Straylight Necessary for binoviewing with eyeglasses.
  • Safety Features: The 1 ¼ “and 2” Barrels of each Morpheus incorporate our new slip Protect Safety Kerfs. The ideal compromise between safety smooth barrels and wide undercuts. The Numerous shallow Kerfs give additional grip and security from inadvertent drops from smooth sided barrels, without the annoying problem sometimes Caused by traditional wide undercuts. Wide waffle-patterned rubber grip ring gives to an extra measure of handling security.
  • Photo-Video Adaptation: Like Their Hyperion siblings, all Morpheus eyepieces make superb imaging projection optics. Each Morpheus includes a hidden M43 photo-video eye lens thread That permits use of our extensive range of Hyperion Digital T-Rings. These rings permit direct-thread attachment of Practically any imaging device for the ultimate in rigidity and close-coupling for minimal vignetting.
