I still like "Barge Cement" for stuff like that. Follow the directions for best results.

It should be almost anywhere, it's been around for many years. I think I picked some up at OSH the last time. Check any hardware store, possibly Walgreens, Rite-Aid etc..

I had the same problem with one of my scopes so I just put one of those rubber boots over it and called it good. It helps keep the european style focus rings from moving too.Posted Image
