    Default Observer's Eyepiece Bag Project Update



    I recently updated my Observer's Eyepiece Bag with the addition of an insert designed for 1.25" eyepieces. The update comes down the page a bit.

    This bag, along with my stool are the two observing accessories that make every outing, I really enjoy the convenience of having the selection of eyepieces at hand.

    If you are interested, you can see the project page here: Observer's Eyepiece Bag -Home Built Astronomy - Rod Nabholz

    Thanks,

    Rod

    Man, that's cool, Rod. I need to build one of those. It looks very handy, dew/frost free, and quick, safe access to your EP's.

    Thanks Bryan. Not having to leave the scope to retrieve a different eyepiece is a real advantage, and as you say, they are much safer in the bag than on an open rack or in my pocket!

    Great ideas on both the original ep bag and the update version. Repurposing and organizing in the same project... I like it!
