Description

Flexi-Heat Dew Shields - The Heat is On!

 

Until now, standard unheated dew shields could only prolong the onset of dew formation. Depending on your geographic location, a simple dew shield may be all that is required. (Dew shields are also great for blocking stray light from reaching your optics.) However, in moist climates, dew can still creep up on you within a short period and your viewing session is over. Why not add some heat?

 


Our Flexi-Heat dew shields direct the heat right to your optical tube assembly, thus eliminating any chance of dew formation. Guaranteed!

 

What makes it work?

 

The source of heat is a thick film heater manufactured for operation at 12 volts. Sixty-six percent of the surface area is heat emitting - this means more even heat distribution and no localized hot spots or burnouts often associated with resistance wire heaters. Best of all, it won't create heat wave disturbances.

 

Our Flexi-Heat dew shields come with a six foot phono-plug cable. You will need an Astrozap dew controller for a power source. Other brand controllers are fully compatible.


The Astrozap Flexi-Heat dew shields are made from durable yet light weight ABS plastic and lined with black felt to help increase contrast. A 2-inch sewn neoprene rubber “Mega Grip” material wraps snugly around the telescope optical tube assembly, keeping the dew shield in place, and eliminating any chance of dew formation!
CHOKING HAZARD - small parts may pose a risk to children under 6 yrs.

    This is a nice combination of a dew strap and a dew shield. By combining the two it helps to confine the heat inside the dew shield thus giving a better control of dew accumulation. It is well constructed and my experience, thus far, has been very positive.

    I always enjoy purchasing from telescopes.com. About this product, the heat shield comes in handy on warm summer humid nights, like we have in the south. However, I wish I had known the adapter does not work directly with my Celestron Power Tank.

              Comments about AstroZap Flexi-Heat Telescope Dew Shields:

              For most observers that are in locations that are susceptible to dew, this is a must have accessory. Even if your in areas without much dew, like the southwest, a dew shield is also a great accessory to have, it blocks stay light and keeps dust from collecting on the front corrector.

              The AstroZap build quality is fantastic. Its heavy-duty, high quality construction and looks very sharp when attached to your scope. I use it for outreach too, because kids will inevitably want to try and touch the front of the scope, a dew shield blocks their prying little fingers from getting to the lens. When coupled with a dew heater, even in the heaviest of dew laden nights, with the scope literally dripping wet, my AstroZap keeps me observing.
