Opticron es80 ga ed v3 query
Hello, picked this up with an sdl v2 in very good condition for £389 from LCE this week.
A few queries,
Price seems good given eyepiece is £269 new?
Second, eyepiece didn't come with a dustcap, can I get one of these from anywhere?
Third, eyepiece has a slight particle/ dust underneath the glass (view side not screw side) I know this can happen on binoculars (in fact has happened on my HR WP ones) - is this anything I should be concerned by?
Fourth, the focuser makes a noise when twisted, seems to be the ridged plastic against plastic stopping it from moving too much - anyone else got one to provide input?
Considering whether to hang on to it or not, views?

I have an HR 80 GA ED and the focus is smooth and quiet but I have had problems with other telescopes where the rubber cover was not glued down firmly enough so rubbed on the flutes of the wheel.
