A Kraft Peanut butter lid fits perfectly for the 77mm Eikow. (Polaroscope)
No felt needed...tight fit.

Crown Royal, if I'm not mistaken.
Yeah, but I didn't want a possible mod issue so I strategically faced the labels away. I don't drink.
A local person had around 75 of these including some nice black ones (towards the back in the picture). I've used them for years as various grab bags of astro gear and also cover my secondaries on the big dobs. I've never had a lint or fuzz problem. I'll still use the elastic bowl covers under them, but I think they will dress up the capless scopes over the covers.
One thing not covered very much in this string is large secondaries. I use a styrofoam cup that snugs to the secondary holder, then bag the whole thing with the CR and drawstring. Been doing this for way many years.

I once made the mistake of transferring Cheryl's protein powder to a ziplock and running off with the prized container, BIG MISTAKE
Now I wait and it takes a long time so when I get one its a special event to see which scope the ruby slippers are going to fit.
Whats great is these come with a cap and they are cardboard but moisture resistant which is lightweight. You just use a can opener and cut the bottom out, cut the top off.
The lucky winner this time is a 92mm I made. ID of this particular container is a very difficult to find 3-7/8" I'll try it out before I cover it with model airplane covering.

The reason I say probably still is is because it worked excellently.
Here's the inside. Custom fitted cardboard:
