Meade 12mm Astrometric Eyepiece

Recommended Posts

Got an eyepiece for drift alignment, in my half-asleep state I ordered the Meade 12mm Astrometric eyepiece. Wondering if this was a sound choice given it's reticle looks like the following image:


Now it does have the double cross-hair section, which one presumes will do the job, but I have a few queries/worries:

The double cross-hair section is not central to the eyepiece itself, is this an issue? I'd presume not, given it would be pointless putting it there if it was.

The cross-hair section doesn't meet the edges of the eyepiece, is this going to make drift alignment harder than it already sounds, or does it really not factor in?
