  6. @PeterCPC @John My eyepiece is around 40mm wide - will this fit this adaptor then?
  7. Hi everyone, recently just purchased a 32mm Omni Plosl 1 1/4 inch eyepiece - https://www.harrisontelescopes.co.uk/acatalog/celestron-omni-plossl-32mm-eyepiece.html. However, it does not fit into my camera - to - telescope adaptor piece due to the body of the eyepiece being to wide. Are there any adaptors i can purchase for this eyepiece?
