:-\  Is anyone using the  "T"-1.25"-Flip mirror eye piece with there Imager and eye piece? Its used to help with lowering the amount of touching to the eye piece when useing a imager or camera. Its a T box that flips a mirror from one eye piece to the other. So you select the eye piece to find and focus an object then flip the switch or knob ,don't know how it works. now its on the imager and you didn't have to remove the eyepiece and replace it with the imager and does it work with a reflector telescope? Its sounds like a good idea i just need some imput. anyones opinion? ;)
I'm asking because im getting a LPI imager. :P
Thanks folks

Some people like them and some dont.
Mine has been sitting in the box on the shelf now for some time as I found it to me more of a pain to deal with.
When adding a flip mirror to the scope you have to be sure your telescope has the focus travel as it adds 3 to 4 inches to the imaging train.
What I generally do is center my target on a crosshair EP then remove it and add the imager then refocus the target.
