Just received my new celestron Advanced VX 6 refractor and it came with what appears to be an extra lens cap. A solid (no center piece to remove) plastic about 6 inches in diameter. However, it won’t quite fit over the lens hood. I did not try to force it. Is this just an extra cap or is it something else?

If the lens hood is removed the extra cap goes over the lens and lens cell for protection.

Thank you for that Chris. Good answer.
