Product Description

This Astrozap Flexi-Heat heated dew shield is designed to fit the Celestron 6" Advanced Series and AVX German equatorial mount SCTs or the 6" NexStar 6SE single fork arm Schmidt-Cassegrain. The flexible plastic rollup dew shield is made of black ABS plastic and lined with black felt to absorb both moisture and light. Its Velcro closures are sewn in place for durability. The dew shield is notched to fit around the mounting bar from the front to the rear of the optical tube of these two Celestron SCTs.

The heater strip draws only 0.66 amps at full power (although power consumption at normal operating levels will generally be considerably less, particularly with the heat-conserving properties of the dew shield itself). It has a permanently attached 6' power cord terminated by a male RCA plug for connection to an optional (but required) heater control unit.

Review by:
In addition to doing a great job as dew heater, I like the attention to detail in the dew shield itself - the inner lining which helps reduces light reflections/scatter, for example. All in all, a very worthwhile upgrade from my Celeston dew shield. (Posted on 10/13/2018)
