Dust Covers

I am looking for a dust cover (vinyl or hard) for my older C-8, but haven't been able to find anyone carrying anything that mentions fitting an 8" SCT. Years ago I know these were available, as well as eyepiece covers, as I still have the eyepiece covers. Meade carries some, but no one lists the actual dimensions it fits, I am looking for 9".
Thanks,
Brian

They're not vinyl - more like mylar, but take a look at:

Here ya' go... mainly sold as a focusing aid (AKA Hartmann mask) but the holes may be covered or you could even install an optional off-axis solar filter in one of 'em.
