One last post from me just to show a shot of my scope (and obviously home made dew shield).

Sorry again if up is not up. Not sure how to fix it.

That a good looking rig you have there! The one thing that did not come with my Q6 was the sliding dewshield. Was yours easy to construct? V/R Terry

My dew shield was not as easy to make as I would have wished.If I remember I made it from layers of fiberglass mat and resin. I have no recall of how I formed it. I guess I somehow used the tube itself as a mold (protected of course somehow). I also know it was painted with the car paint that supposedly had the same code they used originally. I think it has aged a little differently than the tube a bit. It was a dead match when new. It is flocked inside with felt and forms a tight fit.
