I don't if this will help or frustrate someone but i just found a cheap way of obtaining eyepieces.

The local video camera repair shop had some left over eyepieces and i got these for only $5 Aus.

They don't state what they are off or the magnification so i don't know how they will go.

I am building my first 6" dob and cutting my own circles from 19mm plate glass and then grinding my own focal length of about (i hope) f/6.

I will post the results if these work as they are a cheap alternative.
