      Comments about AstroZap Dew Heater Bands for Telescopes:

      I don't know why I waited so long to purchase the AstroZap controller and heater bands. Bought 3 for my 8" Lightbridge.
      One for my 50mm viewfinder, one for my 2" eyepiece and one for the 1 1/4 eyepieces. For the first time I was able to have a 3 hour session without having to deal with condensation!
      No one should in my area of upstate New York should be without one!

          My LX90 was fogging up after about 30 minutes into the late evening here in humid TN. After strapping this on with the Astrozap dew controller I had a good 5 or 6 hours of viewing and no dew. Wonderful ! Could not do without it here. Got the dew shield coming mainly to keep little fingers clear of glass but this alone did the trick. Now I need to order another for the spotter scope. I was afraid it would drain my celestron 7a/hr pwr tnk too fast but it did not appear to hit it to badly even turned up high for the whole night. Would definitely buy this again.

                  This dew heater has helped me a great deal from ending my nights of viewing early or preventing my nights of imaging. I have a passive dew shields but they are almost useless in S.W. Missouri when the temps drop below freezing. This dew strip heater works great. I purchased 4 of them, 1 for eyepieses, 1 for my 80mm APO, 1 for my LX200 10" and 1 for my LX200 14". All of them had performed well. I've not had a problem with frost all winter. I definately recommend them for anyone who has dew and/or frost problems.

                    Comments about AstroZap Dew Heater Bands for Telescopes:

                    Sometimes passive dew control just doesn't cut it. If you live in a humid climate you most likely know what I mean. I've tried using other methods of dew control but it seemed that I was only delaying the problem.

                    After buying some dewstraps from Telescopes.com I am no longer cutting my observing sessions short because of fogged up or just plain out soaked optics. As long as you have a controller to heat up the straps "which they also sell on this site" you will see that it's extremely easy to use. I'm now kind of upset that I waited this long to make the purchase!

                    If I had to pick some cons I would have to say that having a couple dewstraps hooked up will leave a mess of wires that you could get caught up in. I fixed this issue "if you even want to call it that" with some twisty ties.

                    All in all if your dealing with dew cutting your night short it's more than worth the small investment! If I had to I would buy these straps again no questions asked!
