Tube end cover.

Recommended Posts

Hi All. Does anyone have a tube end cover to fit a 12" Skywatcher 300p Dobsonian that they don't want please? Mine has a few holes in it...lol. It's for the secondary end, not the mirror end.  Many thanks.  Chris.  :)

This is in the wrong forum I think. 

But incidentally I'm after one of these too!

I'm looking for an actual plastic replacement that I can butcher to turn into an aperture mask. My cardboard ones keep disintegrating.

How about 2 circles of ply one slightly bigger tha the other stuck together and then drill the hole for the mask?

The plastic ones tend to be in use or broken.

 

 

Astrobin might be a source or contact FLO or OVL.

Foam board from the art shop is good, do the two differ sizes thing. Then turn it into a flip flat.
