Celestron Regal + Baader zoom Mark IV

Does anyone know if the eyepiece Baader zoom 8-24mm Mark IV can be used with spotting Celestron Regal models?
Thank you

Hi, maybe a late answer but yes it is. I just got one for my Regal M2 80 and it works just fine and it's sharp all the way to 60x as opposed to Celestrons own zoom eyepiece which I find quite soft over about 45x.

the Baader Hyperion zoom starts at 48 degrees only at 24mm..jumps to 53,58,63 and 68 degrees in the respective 20,16,12 and 8 mm ..48mm is not great at 24mm but it is only there,in the low end on the magnification ,where the eyepiece shows a slight disagvantage both in FOV and image quality..past the 20mm mark the eyepiece starts to really get wide and image quality excellent,and bear in mind that is a 3x zoom selling for 250 dollars ..compared with 25-50x or 25-60x high end Alpha zooms at twice the Price i dont think is out of class AT ALL
