The Baader Morpheus 76° 6.5mm eyepiece provides an ultra-sharp 76 degree undistorted flat field, which is unsurpassed by any other modern widefield eyepiece. The on-axis sharpness and contrast rivals even the legendary Zeiss Abbe planetary eyepieces. The absence of distortion in the eyepiece enables you to oversee the full field at once and to easily find the best viewing position, while enjoying a spacewalk feeling unmatched by others.
Both 1.25" and 2" barrel connections without undercuts are included with safety kerfs to prevent slippage. Due to their shape, design and low weight, the Morpheus eyepieces are the best eyepieces to use in a binoviewer. No other eyepiece series has been designed consistently for this use, while offering the same (true) field angle, minimized vignetting and providing a 55 mm outer housing diameter throughout, to allow binoviewing even for children with just 55 mm interpupillary distance.
Baader's Phantom Group coating is a 7-layer broadband anti-reflective coating with extremely low residual reflection. Each group of lenses has this coating applied. The coating has been optimized so that they are most effective where the human eye has its greatest sensitivity at night, at around 520nm.
Just like the modular Hyperion eyepiece series, the 76° Morpheus eyepieces are also especially suitable for photography. The distortion is even lower than in the Hyperion eyepieces, despite the larger field of view. The M43/T2 Photo/Video adapter ring (BA2958080) fits onto all Morpheus eyepieces, allowing virtually any camera to be used for classic eyepiece projection.

Privileged to have two of these now, the pair work superbly in the Baader Maxbright II binoviewer for lunar and planetary viewing in my 105mm and 130mm triplet refractors. Haven't tried the combination yet in the 10" newt. They are sometimes used separately, when two or more scopes are set up for several viewers. Their quality and comfort are really good, as is expected from Baader products.
