    Default Making Eyepiece



    Hi, I've a DIY telescope ( 65mm aperture diameter &1000mm focus length, 150mm concave for 3x barlow, 50mm ramsden eyepiece putting 100mm 2 plano convex)
    But I've a extra 100mm plano convex lens. So, is there any way to get 33.33mm eyepiece from combining 3 plano convex 100mm eyepiece.

    The weakest link in the optical chain is the large nut located directly behind the eyepiece/ camera. - Gabrielle

    thing in some balance of perspective. Apos are awesome, but long focus Achros aren't that far behind them - Siriusandthepup (CN)

    Refractors kick arse precisely because they don't hide behind excuses. That is, they have no obstructions to hide behind. - Jon Isaacs (CN)
