For best performance of your telescope, this accessory provides a solution with maximum prevention and reduction of dew. As a dew shield (lens shade), it reduces dew by its shape, however if dew still appeares due to extreme moisture content in the air, switch it on and the built-in dew heater (heating strip) will remove any dew from the corrector plate.

 

Unlike most heating strips, this device can be directly powered from your power tank if you have a spare power cable with center positive, 2.1mm/5.5mm plug.

Made for operation at 12 Volts.
A suitable 12 Volt DC power supply is required, either via mains transformer or power tank or other suitable battery, but please don't forget that you'd also need a compatible supply connector cable with a center positive, 2.1mm/5.5mm plug.
 

NEW! A single channel controllel is now included.
