The Baader Morpheus Eyepieces - Review by William A. Paolini

The Baader Morpheus eyepieces sport a wide 76º apparent field of view, comfortable eye relief, sealed watertight housings, and an optical design that provides sharp-to-the edge performance even in fast focal ratio telescopes.

The new Morpheus line of eyepieces from Baader Planetarium provide a level of performance well above their current Hyperions, and are a worthy "big brother" to that line. The Morpheus sport a long list of features which include: light weight, sealed watertight construction, immersive 76º apparent field of view (AFOV), generous eye relief that varies from 17.5mm to 21mm, a proprietary 8 element 5 group design incorporating rare-earth glasses, Baader's Phantom Coating® Group index-matched to each glass type, blackened lens edges, rubber grip ring, integrated M43 photo-visual threading, dual skirt design allowing them to be used in either 1.25" or 2" focusers, multiple eye guards (conventional and winged), multiple dust caps (to accommodate the multiple eyeguards), “safety-kerfs” instead of undercuts on the 1.25" and 2" barrels, photo-luminescent graphics to aid in identification in the dark, and a Cordura eyepiece holster with belt attachment.
