Vernonscope is a US small business that manufactures Brandon eyepieces from 6mm to 24mm in 1.25" diameter and 48mm in 2" diameter, as well as telescope optical accessories for both 1.25" and 2" eyepieces. These include several Dakin Barlows, silver-coated quartz star diagonals, image erectors, filters (including Magenta), extenders, and an 80mm birdscope. We also manufacture Brandon eyepieces for Questar. We build our eyepieces in North Carolina of parts made in the USA. They are fabulous for planetary viewing and their high contrast, ultra-sharp images make them excellent for use in solar scopes too. Try a 12mm or 16mm and enjoy the views.
