I'm wondering if someone could helpme finding the green plastic cover of Polar Scope for Vixen GP mount.

The green one, not the transparent blue of later GPD2 versions. I'm unable to found it on my localization (Spain, EU).

 

Thanks!

Contact Vixen. They MAY have some left. I lost mine and they sold me one.

Post a wanted ad in the classifieds.

Thanks for your advise. 

Already tried with Vixen JP, they no longer have the green plastic cover in stock at their factory. The transparent blue one is still available from Vixen but only limited quantity.

 

Next step is trying on Vixen EU (now Bresser) and Vixen USA.

Good advice, but I'm afraid the average member viewing the classified forum doesn't know what a green Vixen GP mount polar telescope cap is... lol.gif

 

Well, joking aside, I'll try. Thanks.

It was the one that came with the mount when Orion was a Vixen dealer. Say, 1999.

All you need is one person who knows what it is, has one, and is willing to sell it. (I qualify for #1 and #2, but... I want to keep mine). I try wanted ads often, and sometimes it works.

You’d be surprised. I’ve found a couple of pretty esoteric items by putting want ads in the classifieds.

You should be able to post the picture in your Wanted ad too, just to be sure people know exactly which part you're looking for.
