I want to see if there is any interest in eyepiece holders for tripods. I've made a couple recently. They are enjoyable to make and it gives me something to do to pass the time. I've made ones for my Surveyors tripod and my iEQ45m. I imagine I could make them for any tripod though. Here are a couple pictures of the "beta" versions I made. Let me know!


Mods if this not the correct forum for this post let me know. :)
