Product Description

This dew shield fits the Celestron 6" NexStar 6SE Schmidt-Cassegrain. It has a notch cut into it to clear the mounting dovetail on the side of the removable NexStar 6SE optical tube. This gives the dew shield a smoother and tighter fit to prevent air and light leaks.

The Astrozap dew shield/lens shade is made of lightweight, flexible, and durable black ABS plastic, lined with black felt to absorb both moisture and light. Aside from retarding the formation of dew during nighttime observing, it acts as a lens shade to block neighboring lights and provide a sharper and higher contrast image when doing astronomical observing from a light-polluted city or suburban site.

Simply wrap the Astrozap around the optical tube's front cell, making sure the notch aligns with the dovetail bar. The ends of the dew shield overlap and Velcro strips on the overlapping ends hold it firmly closed in a tubular shape. The Velcro closures are sewn in place for durability. A two-inch rubber trim inside the dew shield clasps the telescope optical tube front cell snugly to prevent any slippage of the dew shield during use.

Storage is easy. You can roll the Astrozap up like a newspaper and fasten it with a rubber band or string to stand out of the way in the back of a closet when not in use. Alternatively, you can store it open and flat in the top of your telescope carrying case or standing on end out of the way in the back of a closet.

Anyone who uses a 6" scope simply must have this shade. I've used it all summer long and even with all the humidity we've had in Oklahoma this past few months, it worked as it should!! (Posted on 9/26/2019)

Hood for your Celestron 6 works as it should. Helps prevent dew on your SCT. Kinda Bulky and although light cannot be packed for travel very well. It would be nicer if the C6 had a dew shield built-in. This does the job however. (Posted on 11/14/2018)
