Need lens covers for an older Leica binocular

I'm looking for a replacement eye cup (screw-on type) for old-style Leica 8x40 Trinovid binoculars - available, price, shipping?

What attachment will allow me to digiscope with my Vortex Nomad scope?

I purchased a Vortex Nomad spotting scope from you a few years ago. I also own a Canon Power Shot SD 1000 Digital Elph point and shoot camera.

Will the that you sell allow me to take pictures through my scope with this camera? If so, is any other equipment required or is the attachment alone sufficient?


Hi Philip,
That particular adapter (PS-100) is designed for a different product and will not work with the Nomad scope.  The small Vortex Universal Adapter will work well with your scope and camera combination.

If you have any other questions, just let me know.

Best regards,

Eagle Optics
