Product Description

This TeleGizmos T309 365 Series scope cover uses dual layer construction that's designed to meet the most demanding equipment coverage needs for your 8" to 9.25" altazimuth-mount catadioptric telescope - including 24 hour a day/7 day a week/365 day a year outside exposure. It also provides an extra measure of often-needed environmental protection for a scope mounted in a dome or roll-off roof observatory building.

The T309 has a height of 42", with a 58" circumference opening at the bottom (meaning it will slip over a 18" diameter scope or drive base). It will fit Celestron and Meade altazimuth-mount scopes (Schmidt-Cassegrains, Maksutov-Cassegrains, etc.) from 8" to 9.25" in aperture, or similar scopes, when their optical tubes are parked in a vertical position, as shown in the photo.

A heavy-duty drawstring sewn into the bottom of the cover cinches tight under the telescope base to hold the cover in place in windy conditions. Two spring clamps with plastic tips are provided for additional custom fitting of the cover around your particular scope model. In addition, a lasso-type bungee cord with an adjustable slide barrel lock is provided for additional securing of the cover at midscope/mount areas.

Review by:
I live in San Jose, CA which got weeks of rain at the beginning of 2023. This cover did NOT keep out the rain and my equatorial mounts were soaked. Must seal the sewing seams or use an inner plastic bag to keep water out.
