What is the eye relief of the P1042?

Date published: 2018-01-30

Just bought a P1042 and when they came in I find that my eyes are too close to the lenses when holding them to my eyes even with the relief all the way out.  Are there eye cups available to fit over the built in reliefs?

Asked by: Steve77705
There are not any specifically designed for that, but you might find something at www.steinerpartsdirect.com
