Product Description

This sloped-top 365 Series cover uses dual layer construction to meet the most demanding 24 hour a day/7 day a week/365 day a year outside exposure coverage needs. It is designed to protect any 8" or 10" Schmidt-Cassegrain on a German equatorial mount. Some typical scopes would include the 8" Celestron C8S, C8S-GT, CGE800, 9¼" C9¼S, C9¼S-GT, and CGE925, or the 8"Meade SC-8 on an LXD55 or LXD75 go-to mount.

A heavy-duty drawstring sewn into the bottom of the cover cinches tight under the equatorial head to hold the cover in place in windy conditions. Two spring clamps with plastic tips are provided for additional custom fitting of the cover around your particular scope model. In addition, a lasso-type bungee cord with an adjustable slide barrel lock is provided for additional securing of the cover at midscope/mount areas.

Review by:
I have stored a Meade 8" SCT on a CGE Pro outside first in New Mexico now in Italy (much more moisture in the atmosphere!) under this cover. Both pieces of kit have had no damage or degradation at all in over a year of 100 F down to - 10F, in rain, hail, snow or intense sun. The equipment is on a permanent pier so the cover seals nicely around the pier with a couple of extra bungee cords. So it even keep the dust and bugs out (Posted on 12/27/2018)
