Subject: Another LXD SN10 Mod Sent: Monday, August 1, 2005 19:28:41 From: Karl Poirier (firstname.lastname@example.org) This one makes changing eyepieces a one handed affair. Karl Poirier Mississauga, Ontario Canada L4W 3W6
The eyepiece holder on the LXD is annoying, as it requires two thumbscrews to secure. The following is a non-destructive method of overcoming this problem.
It requires a machine shop capability, but this is usually available for minimal cost from another hobbyist.
The part employed is from Reid Tools, a nice quick no minimum order size organization. I got my parts transborder in 3 days. Reid Tool Supply Company (reidecom.reidtool.com/xephr/qbe/HOMEPAGE)
This modification requires a new aluminum piece, as there is not enough bulk in the 1.25" eyepiece holder.
We start with the 2" eyepiece holder included with the LXD.
No more screw adjustment to change eyepieces!!
