Like some others on this forum, I've recently acquired a Pentax PF65EDII w/ 20-60x eyepiece. It came with a HD nylon cover. How do those of you who backpack this spotter make sure it doesn't get dinged?
I've seen special foam padded soft cases - "Snug Rugs" - that may offer some defense. I'm sure there are others. Any suggestions? I've also thought of wrapping the scope up in "bubble wrap". Several layers should offer a bit of protection.
Should the eyepiece be removed from the scope body for packing?
