received new zoom

After a long wait (supply chain issues), I received my second baader planetarium eyepiece.

This time, the 8-24 zoom. The Hyperion Universal Zoom Mark IV with soft detents at 8, 12, 16, 20, and 24 mm.

I've tried a loaner to see if it would be helpful, useful, during double star observing. 

I was impressed.

So I decided to get my own from the nice people at KW Telescope-Perceptor. baader is so smart! It's such a treat that they consider the many applications that this might be used in and provide many adapters and little accessories to enable those experiences.

Worth the wait.


Flashbacking to previous visits to Perceptor, when they were not far where I live now...
