Hello M66,
You could try a camera store that deals in 2nd Hand. Something like- The Camera Exchange in Melbourne (Box Hill)

Best

Jeremy,
At over $100 delivered, probably more than the spotter scope is worth!

Not deliverable to Australia....

Not what I'm looking for - just a plain slip on (metal?) 76mm cover.

Ken,

Unfortunatelly my printer is currently broken (processor board is misbehaving), so I can't make any promises..

When I fix it (in a week or so I hope, because I need it for my own printing to do, but I am too busy right now with some other things) I may be able do it for you. You just have to give me the design (dimensions... etc.).

BTW, Officeworks in Mentone has custom 3D printing service where you can come with your own design and print it in situ... they charge $3 for 15 minutes for PLA print, so it may cost you ~$10 to do it there...
