Stay-on case alternatives for ED82

Hello,
I just bought myself a Nikon Fieldscope ED82 with 30x Wide DS. I am very happy with it, and have a 1 year warranty, but it came without a stay-on case or even rubber caps to protect the eyepiece and frontlens.

I wonder if someone knows a place where I can still buy the original stay-on case, or even better, someone who knows another stay-on case that fits as well.

Otherwise I will have to at least find a rubber cup with the exact size of the eyepiece because this part of glass sticks out and is easily damaged. The front lense has the suncover as protection.

You could try Sights of Nature c.q. Kite Optics (same company) in Belgium; they design and make stay-on cases for different brand telescopes.

If you hear anything back, do you mind posting here please? Many others (myself included) would be interested to hear if they can provide an alternative.

Cheers

Couldn't Nikon help you out, with either a stay-on case or lens caps? The new Monarch Fieldscope looks *a lot* like the discontinued ED82... I wouldn't be surprised if its accessories also fit on the ED82.

Sights of Nature/Kite Optics replied, but told me they don't know if there is another case that would fit the ED82, and the only option is to try it in their store, but that's in Belgium.

Nikon told me they don't support their sport optics in the Netherlands, so their solution is that I send the whole scope to them, and then they will send it to Nikon Germany and then Nikon Germany will find the matching caps..... What the....
