Re: Anyone know what this 1.25 eyepiece is?

Sometimes Suppliers took spotting scope eyepieces and added a 1.25" barrel adapter screwed on with a tiny set screw to lock. Their labeling was then painted on. Vernonscope did this with a 20mm modified Erfle and placed their Brandon label on it, but they didn't do it for long as the eyepiece was clearly stamped Japan inside and Vernonscope advertised their products as made in USA. Customer returns promted the deletion, but it was indeed an excellent eyepiece dispite the mis-representation. Ron
