Hello everybody 

 

I have this new 6 mm eyepiece . I have a question. 

 

The "nose" of the eyepiece can be swung lengthening or shortening... can you tell me why?

Yes! That is actually raising and lowering the eye cup on the eye piece. If you look at the lens on the top, when you twist, it will submerge into the eyepiece. 

 

This is done to help facilitate eye placement when using the eyepiece. 

 

I hope that helps! :)
