    Default Need "dust cap" for Celestron Omni XLT 120 - using coffee can lid



    I picked up a used Omni XLT 120 from a pawn shop with a CG4 mount for $125, now I know why it was so cheap, it didn't have a dust cap for the objective end of the scope. I have contacted Celestron 3 times, about 3 weeks ago they sent me the cap for a 102, I sent it back because it is not even close. I have emailed them, called them, begged with them...

    Those things are like gold evidently. They told me to go Agena and they have caps, but the only caps they have are for EP's and they won't fit, hard to stretch them enough.

    Does anyone have or know of a cap for a Omni XLT 120?

    I measured the dew shield and went to the grocery store and bought a large can of coffee because the cap looked like it might fit, $10 for a can of coffee, have been up for 3 weeks straight now LOL
    Anyhow with some foam tap it fits like a glove but I would prefer the proper cap.

    Ben, you might give Telescope Warehouse a try. They are good folks to deal with. I took a quick peek around their site and didn't see a cover listed, but email them. I had an item I was looking for and they had it... they just hadn't added to their site yet.

    Good Luck.
    Keith
