The stated size is the diameter of the nominal eyepiece-focuser interface
(a circle). The focus is allowed to be a bit larger than this diameter,
and the eyepieces are to be a bit less in diameter. That way all 1.25"
eyepieces will fit inside all 1.25" focusers, even allowing for variations
machining tolerance.
