Zeiss Universal Dust Cover

#1 Post by jb89 » Tue Feb 04, 2020 9:54 pm

Hey guys, just looking for a dust cover for my new Universal.

It measures about 11inches wide, 30in ish when factoring a camera tall, and 30in deep with lightsource. (28cm*76cm*76cm)

I haven't seen anything close to these measurements and was hoping someone knew a good place for them.

I'd prefer a dark colored one to keep UV light off the scope but not a big deal, it doesn't sit near a window.

Thanks!

You might want to use a couple of cotton pillow cases (one inside the other) until you find a dust cover you are happy with.

It is what I use, it keeps dust out and avoids condensation. Any lint deposited is easily removed with a blower.
