I could have probably got it a little smoother but I didn't want to risk messing about more than I had to to get something that worked.

Epoxy resin worked quite well. I could have got black resin but it's advertised as being suitable for repairing metal rather than plastics, and may possibly be conductive which is not ideal given the electrical contacts on the lens. In the end I went for a strong normal epoxy - the one I got turns out to dry white, which looks a bit odd, but doesn't affect operation. Now trying to sell it, we'll see what happens.

Wonderful - a few days of nice weather then we get stuffed when the eclipse comes along...

I know someone who has one but the quality isn't good enough in my opinion. There's a couple of places I want to try, but if I have no luck I'll try the epoxy resin thing.
