I've decided I want to decloak this eyepiece to make it a bit lighter.
I love the big eyecup that I can rest my face on, but it's so much heavier than my other eyepieces that I end up hardly ever using it.
Here's what it looks like now, on the left:
I've read the threads on how to do it, and specifically these posts:
I've tried to, very gently, get a flat-head screwdriver in between the bit where the rubber meets the metal, but the rubber isn't moving upwards.
I'm worried about applying too much force and scratching up the metal or breaking the rubber, which I don't want to do because I might want to restore it to its original form at some point.
Is there a trick to doing this? Is it possible that the rubber is glued on and needs more force to remove it? Can anyone who's done this before give me any advice?
