Last two observation sessions have been focused on Jupiter. Both nights had very good seeing. Both started with a low power wide eyepiece then I went to the Baader Hyperion Zoom and that is what I used all evening.

Orion XT8i Dob- With this one I had the BHZ sitting in my GSO 2X 2" barlow pushing all the way to 300X but really doing best around 240X.

Last night I used my 5" Meade ETX 125 Mak - barlow needed for this one. Best view was around 160-180X

Although new to this field, upon recommendation and a lot of research (between getting fixed length EP or the Baader zoom) I got the zoom and have been using briefly. Already totally loving it, so handy, great views and gee the quality and contrast! I am using it through a fast Dobsonian 12" that admittedly is about 10 years old and not the best but I recommend this zoom!
I am now wondering about either a 2 or 3x Barlow...hehehe!
Peace to all.

I use mine in an F5.9 8" Dob. A 2X barlow is well matched for my scope.
