    Default Old eyepieces...



    I decided to attempt to make some of the parts from my old "junk" scopes work with my 8se. I've tried and was able to see close up the radio tower i was using as target. This was with a 5mm .96 lens that scrounged from my old Vivitar Telescope. I was actually quite impressed with how well the film canister adapter I hacked together worked (man I love the net sorry I don't know who's page I borrowed the idea from). Also the 1.5x image corrector and the 20mm eyepiece from the Galileo seem to work nicely too. Cannot wait for another clear night!

    Default Re: Old eyepieces...

    I am looking forward to doing an experiment myself. I want to go out and compare my new eyepieces back to back with my old ones and see just how much of a difference they make and how much is just hype over the latest and greatest.
