Recycling Old Eyepieces

Recommended Posts

Just would like to share my 10-minute DIY eyepiece conversion of an old .96" Celestron circle-V 6mm Orthoscopic to 1.25":

Old Orthoscopic 1-3

Old Orthoscopic 3-3

Old Orthoscopic 2-3

thought this might be useful for someone who want to use their good old Orthos. on a modern telescope. :-)

Neat idea :smiley:

They are nice eyepieces too - made for Celestron by Vixen in Japan.

Another way is to use a .965" - 1.25" adapter if you don't have the spare 1.25" barrel.

I had some 0.96" ortho eyepieces with my first scope.

Nice eyepieces and worth keeping (though I did,nt)

Great idea
