    Default Low cost cross hair EPs on Ebay



    Not illuminated.. but this seller has adapted a 22mm finder cross hair EP for use as 1.25" EP For about $30.
    I have an illuminated EP already.. that i have used with dead batteries too.
    This can be a real aid to good scope alignment..even without illumination

    Thanks Ken. I bought one. I am an new 6SE user. With my low level of experience, I depend a lot on the GOTO feature. This eyepiece will really help during alignment, since even with de-focused stars, I am never really sure if they are in the exact center.

    I received the eyepiece from Russel Optics (ebay seller). It is very well made. I tried it out tonight. It works great !. I could see the cross hairs clearly in my suburban skies. This will really help me get a good alignment with my Nexstar 6se every time.

    Thanks,
    ClearSkyFC.
