The small cap is to crop the scope down by 2 inches. This is for looking at the moon. The moon may be way to bright without a filter. If so just remove the small cap and that will cut down the light from the moon without using a filter. All other times you should remove both caps. Of course if you're using a moon filter remove bothcaps when viewing the moon.
That's it;
