Dear Group. I have an Orion 9x50 finder scope. It's the eye piece that screws on the. Any help finding one. Thanks All and Clear Skies

Why spend the money when a complete finder scope is cheaper than an eyepiece?

IF your eyepiece is stripped, glue it on.
IF your eyepiece has lost its crosshairs, Glue new wire in there, or simply live without crosshairs. I'm sure you can fairly accurately estimate the center of the field.
IF your eyepiece is missing, see my link above.
