Would you modify the design such that the nosepiece is straight and not tapered? My 2" visual back has issues with tapered eyepieces.

Definitely, I can add a non-tapered version. Could you advise how long the nosepiece should be?

1.5" should be fine.

According to Tele Vue's website the 2" eyepieces run from 1.1 to 1.62". http://www.televue.com/engine/TV3b_page.asp?id=214

Thank you! In my experience visual backs with compression rings don't play well with tapered eyepieces.

Modified non-tapered version is online! Let me know how it works, I don't have any compression ring fittings to test it with. Cheers!

Very cool, and the blog post was also an interesting read!
