Eye pieces

I was given a meade 28mm wide angled EP the other night but the previous owner had taken it apart and wasn't sure if he had got the lenses in the correct order, the right way around and he thought that he may have slightly damaged one of the lenses.


 


Is there anyone on the forum or does anyone know anyone that would be able to make sure that the lenses are all clean, that it is assemble correctly and if there is any minor damage whether this would effect its use for visual observing.

Hi Dave,


 


You can probably find the configuration of the lenses on line, The shapes are reasonably easy to tollow as the type of ep has a definite configuration against each other , Kellner, Plossl etc.


 


Chers.

I tried to find something online for you Dave but drew a blank so far. More of an eye piece freak than king lol. I just did a talk about them once but never disassembled one in my life :)

Hi Dave,


 


Have you made any progress??


 


Kim, I have taken apart many an ep, only one  I had probs with was an old 6mm .965" one. The exit lens was like a small bead, took more than a couple of attempts.. :D .


 


 


Cheers
