Product Description

This lightweight Astrozap 20-gauge aluminum dew shield is lined with black felt to absorb both moisture and light. The finish is texture black to match the finish of most 14" Celestron SCTs made since the late 1980s - the C14, CM1400, etc. - with the exception of the gray-tube Celestron CGE1400. It will also fit any orange tube C14 made prior to the late 1980s. The dew shield's powder-coated exterior finish is baked on for long life and chip resistance. Nylon thumbscrews in heavy-duty metal inserts hold the dew shield onto the telescope optical tube.

Review by:
I own the Aluminum black astrozap shield for my carbon fiber c.925. While heavier than a flexible one, it is far better in my opinion. A flexible one can droop and you may not align it perfectly straight on the OTA. I used an flexible shield on my 8" LX200, and it was worth the investment keeping the light out from the streetlights by my NY suburban home, but after having the Astrozap aluminum one, I'm hooked. Beautiful finish and black felt lining reduces stray light by orders of magnitude. Worth the few extra bucks and weight difference for sure. I'm strictly an imager and weight is always a consideration for my mount, but this was worth it over a flexi-shield in my opinion. (Posted on 12/26/2018)
