So, this is the first time I was able to achieve a red-eye through an eyepiece! TADA!

That bright blob is strong as hell - it's the reflection off eyepiece's lens' surfaces.

But at the very least, the effect is there - it's in infrared, behind the eyepiece, and dependent on focusing (although a bit more playing is needed here). Good news!
