Yea. . .

Roy,

I've never used Gaffer's tape before, but I had a sense I shouldn't leave it on more than one season for that reason (thought it looks good for at least a years leaving it, since I re-did the tape using the first patchwork as a template).  Thanks for mentioning it.   But unless I can wrap the tape very tight upon itself (and on the eyecup), it won't adhere like the gaffer's does now.

I can't quite picture where Thomas applied his adhesive, but I think it should become apparent when I have the eyecup off again.   I didn't have silicon based adhesive in mind when I considered glue earlier, and wasn't sure what should be used that would last, but that makes sense.

Though, there's no mistaking that's my camera.  I think I may miss the character the tape imparts.  Sure, it's ugly, but it's my baby [g].
