    Default hyperion zoom problem



    Hello i have been a happy owner of a hyperion zoom mark2 for about one year now but i have noticed over the past few weeks some marks showing up what looks like inside the eyepiece. When i look through at 24x i can see two black smears curved one on each side and as i turn the eyepiece to up the magnification these marks move round until at 12x i cannot see them at all.. it almost looks like grease marks i have cleaned the outer glass but the marks dont move.. so i am convinced these marks have occurred within the eyepiece somehow.. Does anyone know what this might be and how i can remove these marks?
    thanks so much for reading!

    If they are between the multiple lenses-- return the eyepiece to the dealer-- and or contact the manufacturer. DO NOT disassemble the eyepiece you will void any warranty and may never get it back together properly.
