    Hi! I found this adapter a few months ago on Thingiverse, and I have tried it (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2567141). To my point of view, it is a really nice device, very well designed.
    Did you design it? If yes, congrats, it is great ;) ! If no, please credit the author because I guess he worked a lot designing this adapter so it can fit perfectly with any smartphone and any eye piece :)
    By the way, I have made my own adapter based on this one, considerably decreasing its size! I'll probably post an instructable about this!
