Zeiss Hybrid Eyepieces

#1 Post by 75RR » Tue Jun 01, 2021 7:16 am

.
I am looking to try out Rolf Vossen's 'Zeiss Hybrid Eyepieces' by combining a 10x Kpl with a 8x Kpl

https://microscopyofnature.com/micropho ... -eyepieces

Don't have either of those pieces as yet, so my question ...

anyone in Europe have one of each going spare

or

would anyone like to share in the purchase (assuming they are sold in pairs) and then divide them up?

Hi 75RR,
I could sent you the lower part from the KPL8x for free, the eye lense is scratched so it seems a good coincidense for you. So it would be just the shipment, approx 9 Euro or so.
Let me know as soon as you got the KPL 10x.
Sometimes difficult to find one of the KPL 10x with an eyelense in good condition.

Do post some results with your hybrid eyepiece once you get the necessary components.

Unfortunately not the eyepiece needed to mix and match with the 8x ... so still on the lookout

An obvious question I know but have you tried ebay? Querying "Zeiss Kpl" brings back a lot of eyepieces many of which are the 10x and 8x that you seek. Whether you find ones in good condition, especially for photomicrography is a whole other topic.

Look most days. Have yet to find a suitable 10x in Europe - needs to be the right type, condition and price of course.

Have seen one in the US, but at 50 dollars + 25 shipping + import tax, a little too much for what is basically a test.

Think I may be able to dig up a KPL 10x that looks a lot like the one in the eBay ad you just posted. Will have a look tomorrow.
