Product Description

You normally can't use your telescope's friction-fit dust cover when you have a dew shield installed on your scope, since the dew shield fits on your scope in place of the dust cover.

But you don't have to take your Astrozap dew shield off your 8" Celestron or Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and store it away in order to use this Astrozap dust cover. This spun aluminum dust cover fits snugly over the end of your Astrozap 8" dew shield to keep your optics dust free, even with the dew shield in place on your scope.

The lip of the dust cover has felt strips inside for a secure friction fit. They hold the dust cover firmly in place, even when the telescope optical tube pointed towards the ground. The dust cover is painted black and fits Astrozap 8" SCT dew shields only.

Review by:
I use this for a C9.25 carbon fiber. It came with the scope as an included accessory with an aluminum Astrozap shield (used) . You will need the Dust cover by the way as the dust cap the scope wont fit it. If you take off the shield after every session its a non issue, but if you leave it on, want to do dark frames in field and want to cover the scope without removing the shield etc, you will need this.
