The pros use a spider web and glue the web to the end of the eyelens. You will notice that there is probably 4 notches on the end of the eyelens. Just put 4 spots of superglue after streaching the web across the apeture. I have access to fine wire (#50Ga.) which makes a nice and thick crosshair. After doing the work, adjust the eyepiece end so that the crosshair is in focus if necessary. That's all there is to it. The biggest problem is streaching the web and gluing it one strand at a time.
