Interesting, does it screw into the top? Is it securely attached?




Yes and yes.

Thanks for the useful info -- I am tempted to get a once my ES eye pieces arrive. I hesitated a while before buying them, considering to go for TV because of the Dioptrix, but the price difference was just too big.

The inside diameter of the Dioptrx is 43.5mm loose, 41mm tight. I believe it will fit the ES 68 deg 28mm.




I ordered a DIOPTRX to use on my Ethos. I'll try it on my ES68 28mm when it comes in and let you know.




For those who were wondering, DIOPTRX fits just fine on the ES68 28. Personally, I am fine with the ER and wearing my glasses with the ES68 28.




Thanks Starman - Looks like a perfect fit! I wish ES had the same upper barrel diameters on the other 68 deg eyepieces.

Sort of. The Dioptrx is 2-peices, that have a compression style fitting that tightens when you twist the 2 pieces together.

I found the dioptrx did NOT work with the ES 30mm, for two reasons: 1., it did not tighten securely and could pop off easily, but more importantly, 2., the recessed eyelens of the ES 30 left the dioptrx with insufficient eye relief. The eyelens is not similarly recessed in the 31T5 (nor in the ES 68 series). So I would give the 30ES82 a miss if you're going to use dioptrx.
