    Yup the caps help keep dust away too, but every crevice on the eyepiece should be suspect like in the zoom EP's. I do use my Hyperion zoom in the field at times, and getting caught in a sudden downpour will make one thankful if the EP is "watertight;" don't want a smudge/moisture inside my lens.

    Take a look at the new Explore Scientific "waterproof" eyepieces:



    That one you can take to the bath if you're trying to find/magnify something down the bath's drain.

    Best,
