OK, thanks. I got my MaxView 40mm, but it is not very good for digiscoping, it has a lot more
vignetting than the Hyperions. Was just looking for a longer digiscoping
eyepiece. Guess I will have to spring for the more expensive 34mm Hype. Anyone
have any other suggestions for a long digiscoping eyepiece? Yes I would like threads on the top.
Got to get ready for those snowflakes early. Thanks, Gene

I guess I just don't understand your problem. If your camera is already hooked up to the scope, then wouldn't the eyepiece, be the eyepiece of the camera?

I digiscope with three scopes plus a microscope set up.
The 80ED Orion OTA and two larger astro scopes
accept 2 inch barrel eyepieces, and of course the 1 1/4
with a reducer. I am happy with the Baadar Hyperion
eyepieces with these scopes. My LX3 does a fine job
of auto focusing, is sharp, and no vignetting after 20% zoom.

My microscopic set-up is used primarily for snowflakes.
The 25mm Hyperion eyepiece is used mostly, but will not
capture the larger flakes. The objective is a Lomo 4x
Plan flat field, which is a fantastic lens. A 1x does not
work well, so I need a longer eyepiece to get a larger
field.

I just ordered a dual element achromatic .5 focal reducer
that will fit the 1 1/4 eyepieces. Of course this will double
the focal length of an eyepiece. Quality to be determined.
Sort of a reverse acting Barlow. Thanks, Dave, for your
interest. Gene
