Description: Found an adequate hat for my Sirius Plossl
This suggestion may sound trashy at first but it really works. One of my pet peeves about the 40mm Sirius Plossl I have sitting in my case is that it did not come with a lens cover for the top portion (a hat). Even though it sits in my closed case I have noticed over the year that it collects a disproportionately high amount of dust. A few days ago I was sitting around drinking a Diet Pepsi (1 Liter) and I noticed that the cap was about the same size as an eyepiece. I gave it a shot. The cap to a wide mouth Pepsi One liter fits perfectly as a cap to the Sirius eyepieces. Make sure that you clean and dry the cap before using it on your eyepiece. This has saved me time and a little bit of money and overall I am happy that my eyepiece finally has a cap.
