[ ...] does leitz 559208 suit me?
Sorry, I don't recognise that number; hopefully someone else will

From memory, though ... the recommended periplan was the high eyepoint one, illustrated here:
http://www.quekett.org/resources/advanc ... icrography
... note the 'spectacles' engraved on it.
The threaded top makes for very convenient adaptation.

The Periplan's optical design is discussed here:

Excellent, thanks
Yes, the corner has a little more chromatic aberration, but not (I think) enough to cause any problem in normal use ...
It looks like you have a fine set-up there.

You may have already seen this:

... but I think the answer to your 'blue spot' problem is probably there.
