Replacement eyepiece cover for Zeiss scope

Q: I am in need of a replacement rubber eyepiece cover for my Zeiss Diascope 65 w/ zoom. I noticed that you have the Vortex Tethered Objective Lens Cover for Binoculars that might fit. The approximate diameter of the Zeiss eyepiece is 52-53mm--it looks as if either the medium or large size would fit snugly on the Zeiss eyepiece. Is it possible, at your convenience, to see which size would fit the best over the Zeiss zoom eyepiece & email that result back to me? I would like to get the original Zeiss cover, but if the Vortex cover works, I at least would have an extra cover!

A:
I checked the fit for a number of different lens covers and I found a pair that fit the Zeiss zoom eyepiece quite well.
They are the Vortex medium lens covers.
If you wanted to get a replacement of the original cover that came with your eyepiece, I would recommend you contact Zeiss to see if that part is available. Typically, manufacturers don't supply dealers with those type of replacement parts.
You can reach Zeiss at: 1-800-441-3005.
