Thanks to norvegicus, here on CN, I have some new dew caps:

I was really intrigued by the "glow in the dark" caps that he showed, but I was hooked when I say the Swift 831 dew cap.  I went thru some of my other scopes to see which ones needed a dew cap, so I had Sean make a few more.

 

They are made just a millimeter or so larger than the OD cap size so felt can be used to make them a snug fit.  Or smaller if you want to cap to fit the ID.

 

For just a simple thing, I'm impressed.  They look great!
