  • Leica Televid case objective end cap solution

    The case for the Televid 65 & 82 scopes has an objective lens cap which has no place to attach it when you're using the scope (an obvious design fault!). I don't think I'm the only one who hates having these things flapping around causing vibration, especially when you're digiscoping.

    To overcome this, a friend and I have made a very minor adaption to our cases by adding a simple metal D-ring to one of the objective end strap attachements (photo A) which allows the magnet in the cap to attach to it when the scope is on use (photos B & C).

    The magnet strength is surprisingly strong and to date this method hasn't failed me on either my 65 or 85 scopes.
