Where can I get eyepiece dust caps?

Recommended Posts

Looked on EBay, blimey! How much? Or has anyone found caps from other products that fitted? Recycling I think it’s called. Need some 1.25mm caps if you have some to spare(sell).

The tops off plastic milk bottles fit the lens end perfectly, but I have not found anything for the other end, yet 😀

Further to my previous suggestion for using plastic milk bottle caps for the lens end you can buy Round Plastic Black  End Cap Caps in 32 mm size for the other end. They are slightly larger in diameter but a little tape does the job.

How about bolt tube cases instead?

A free source of eyepiece caps for many eyepieces are the tops from plastic milk bottles.
