Thanks for looking.

Hi Blueroll,


From what I can gather the size for the the outside thread is between 54mm and 55mm I purchased one which is 56mm but it is to big.
Because it is a older scope it appears to be discontinued according to Ants web page.

Regards

Paul

I forgot that my Lad has it for use with his Hawke, but may not need it now that he has an SRX illuminator.
However I do have 3 Swaro sunshades and they measure 54.69mm diameter across the exterior threads.

Hi Blueroll,

No probs I may be able to get someone to re thread the 56mm shade down for me.As far as I can gather it is a gamma shade which is no longer in production.I measured the pop up ring and that appeared to be 56mm but that is obviously the outer edge as they are tapered to fit.

Regards

Paul

Have you tried Ant Supplies, they used to have lots of sunshades ?
