Product Description

This Astrozap Flexi-Heat heated dew shield is designed to fit the Celestron 8" Advanced Series German equatorial mount SCT or the 8" NexStar 8i or NexStar 8SE single fork arm Schmidt-Cassegrains. 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 particular 8" Celestron SCTs.

The heater strip draws only 1.18 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.

Purchased one of these a while back and super pleased with it.
Doesn't draw very much power at all.
Also, the logo is right side up as opposed to the two Celestron branded non-heated shield I bought over the (Posted on 7/22/2019)
