Siebert Optics Eyepieces

Posted By Gary McCraney

Hi Kurt, I have two eyepieces (26mm & 3.9mm)of Siebert's both are good. My 3.9mm 1.25" format is of the new stardard design. It works great in my 8"F6 dobs(x307). Harry is a vary nice guy that works hard to make good stuff. I would say give him a try.

Hi Ed,
Congratulations.Got my first ticket 1976 (WB3HVL)
Now its NC2O, I build all my radio antennas, electronic dodads and most of my telescope stuff. Its great fun. Its funny how optics and electronics have a lot of the same do's and dont's. "Dont put your finger on that!!", "You make fine adjustments with that knob." Have fun and good luck.

73's de NC2O
