    Default A helpful primer on eyepieces



    I found this article on eyepieces, a link to which you will find below, helpful at both a basic and intermediate level. Granted, some of the particulars are dated -- the last copyright on the piece is from 2002 -- but the optics information is still germane. I hope someone finds the article worth their time.
