      Comments about AstroZap Dobsonian Telescope Light Shields:

      I use this to block out lights when I'm in my back yard. It works great for that.

      My only issue... it's 5 dollars of material and a 35 dollar astronomy markup.

        Comments about AstroZap Dobsonian Telescope Light Shields:

        I use it to block unwanted light from street lights entering the telescope. The shield mounts easily and slugly and works great and can be adjusted easily when scope is repositioned. The shield also blocks wind at times from entering the scope.

          Big, Sturdy, Pricey

          Comments about AstroZap Dobsonian Telescope Light Shields:

          The light shield is well made and sturdy. It is heavy flexible plastic on the outside, with durable black felt-like material on the inside. It connects with a long velcro band that wraps around the scope.

          It works as advertised, and improves contrast by blocking stray light that might find its way into the eyepeice from the top of the tube. This is helpful for me because I live in between two neighbors who find it necessary to run their outdoor lights at night, and this allows me to block that light out somewhat.

          The only negative is that it seems a bit pricey for the amount of material involved. Were it a better value pricewise, I'd give it 5 stars.
