You need 19EYE & 51OBJ

    I also just use the bikini covers, I would think if you have time to flip open butlers you would have time to remove the bikini cover.
    Actually I think it is a little quicker at least for me.

    I have had to go look for them before where I took them off and dropped them. I only use them when the weather demands it.

    It was snowing pretty bad. I hiked in there and was bound and determined I was staying till dark. Tough... not any more. Stubborn... yep, same as I was at a younger age. Maybe worse.

    I have run a layer or 2 of black tape around the middle of the tube while the bikini's are on. This way when you pull them off they just hang there as they are taped to the scope. Does not look bad and they can be easily put back on.
