check out this itt 160 on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0717615091

i never seen an eyepiece cracked like this. do these plastic eyepieces do this frequently? if so how would you prevent this from happening? is it just an age thing?

Never saw that happen to a 160 lens. Maybe heat related or age. I believe they are polycarbonate lenses. I would not expect that to happen.
I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn’t know how to use it.

Almost looks like a protective plastic layer with small ammounts of air traped under it. kinda like the peel off cover on a new cell phone screen. had to take a pretty bad hit......

Perhaps there where some scratches on the lens and they tried to pollish it away with pollish paste?
Tried it once on a polycarbonate lens of my reading glasses, gave the same dramatic effect.

I don't see what you guys see, but anyways, the ITT night enforcers/night quests/yellow floaty scopes have a sacrificial window and most than likely they scratched the piss out of it trying to remove it, little do they know it's glued on. I have a night quest 150 and mine looks the same way.
