Something doesn't look right... in the second image the drawtube has been clearly sawn off with a hacksaw... and the marks on the end don't match the end of the draw tube in the third photo.

What gives ?

Wavytone that is a pretty extreme statement. This is a plossl. It does not have a rubber eyecup and never came with one. It has not been hacked by a hacksaw. The eyepiece was bought from new and has always looked like this. I don't like dispersions being cast about how I look after my gear thanks.

The second photo and third photo by way are the opposite ends of the eyepiece.

Hi everyone,
This eyepiece has no damage and is a good plossl. I will endeavour to take some better photos to show the eyepiece angle better.

Thanks Matt,

Having taken delivery the eyepiece is pristine: and not a hacksaw mark anywhere!

All the best,

Dean
