Hi Greg - I don't actually know the answer to your question, but if you don't get much response here I would highly suggest you try posting your question (or searching the archives) in the digiscoping section of

There are many incredible digiscopers out there who may know exactly what you need.

Baader Hyperion Click-Stop Zoom

Wow...just saw this. Anyone used it yet...seems like a very nice idea to have a wider FOV with a zoom.

They just went on sale in the US yesterday, through Alpine Astro, so I don't think anyone who isn't in Germany has used them yet! There's a thread on CN with a link to a google-translated thread from a German astro site.

Bob at Alpine Astro says he's very impressed, and that it's a worthy addition to the Hyperion line, but also counselled me to not trust vendor reviews :-)
