I'd be interested in a quantification of the Brandon 8mm and its mated
(screw-in , circa 1986) 2X Dakin doubler which effectively converts the
eyepiece to a 4mm. The doubler is only about an inch long and is of 1 1/4
inch sizing. I consider it my best eyepiece (combination) for planetary
considerations and yields 562X on my F4.9 Tectron (FL = 88.5 inches) on
those rare evenings where the skies are steady enough to warrant its use.
