kowa 823 - Baader Hyperion MK4 zoom compatibility (1 Viewer)

A very similar message to a one very recently posted about similar situation but with optylith scope.
In essence I have a Kowa 823 scope fitted with a Kowa eyepiece TSE -Z7 (20-60x). Although generally pleased, i have been advised that fitting the above referenced Baader lens wud enhance my viewing experience.
I have been looking at these lenses and struggle to c how they fit the scope body. The existing kowa one snaps into place via three blades. The Baader only has a screw thread. Will I need to buy adaptors to make this fit ?

To any Kowa users who have been down this route are the benefits worth it ?

Thanks in advance
