This is an odd specification.


I calculate that if it actually is a 100mm focal length 80 degree eyepiece, it would have a 140mm field stop, so would not fit into a 4" barrel.


 


Perhaps it can actually be opened up to expose the full 140mm diameter field stop assuming someone has a big enough focuser.


 


Maybe the 100mm written on top of the eyepiece in one of the photos simply means it fits a 100mm (4") focuser. If so, it would have a focal length of about 70mm at an 80 degree apparent field.


 


It might be useful as a doorstop. :lol:


 


Here it is next to a 31mm Nagler :o ...
