Dust cap


Recommended Posts

This one is pretty cheap, it is right diameter (it says 6"), but I have no idea if it will fit SW scope - it is intended for GSO tubes:

It also says that it is for both 6" newtonian, and 6" rc - but these two scopes have different tube sizes: 179 and 191mm respectively. This is however outer diameter, so I suppose inner diameter is the same (at least front tube part).

I guess that with little application of some sort of cloth / sponge it could be made to fit SW scope if SW tube is wider - if it is more narrow then it probably would be very hard to make it fit.
