Need Opticron HR60 eyepiece or bushnell zoom

... if someone wants to give me / sell me their old eyepiece for this model I could do with one. I live in Wimbledon so someone local may want to help out, or not. I'm going away for a long birding trip soon so need it before 27 March.

Any help / offers will be thankfully received.

cheers

Jim

Sorry, can't help re supply of eyepieces, but I can give you some info about current eyepieces that do fit.
The two zooms do ( HDF and HR ), and opticron eyepieces 40813 22xWAHR 57 and 40814 25xHR 45 which they currently sell.
But try them before you buy, just to make sure!.

I have read somewhere that some Meopta eyepieces also fit Spacemasters. Looking at pictures of the Bushnell zoom, it looks awfully like the Opticron HR Zoom!.
