Baader Micro-Guide eyepiece

Today I got the Baader Micro-Guide eyepiece. This eyepiece should enable me to measure position angles and separation of (double) stars, the diameter of lunar craters (you have to know the exact distance of the Moon), and

a few other interesting features for astrophotography and spectroscopy.

This multi-function eyepiece comes in two parts, the eyepiece itself and a battery illuminator with adjustable brightness control. The illuminator can be attached to the eyepiece. The first thing I will have to do is to determine the exact focal length of my telescope. Only then it will be possible to use the different scales which are etched into reticle. I will keep you updated about my results!
