A form of eyepiece used in optical instruments, such as spectrometers and refractometers, to facilitate setting the axis of the telescope at right angles to a plane-reflecting surface. Light enters the side of the eyepiece and is reflected down the telescope tube by a piece of unsilvered glass, being then reflected back into the eyepiece by the plane surface.
