    Default Replacement Eyecups



    Anybody know where to find replacement eyecups? The eyecup on my zhumell 32mm is cracking and falling apart, almost afraid to unfold it anymore, and zhumell doesn't sell replacements.

    Agena Astro sells them. Call and I am sure they will have one close enough to fit. You need to measure it across the top and get a size that is close. I had to stretch the one I got for my 5mm. After a few days it was fine.
