The core of any dew prevention system is the dew shield. AstroZap offers flexible dew shields that are custom-made and painted to complement optical tubes including Takahashi Epsilon Astrographs as well as telescopes from Meade (including the new ACF series), and Celestron (including the new HD series). These dew shields are proudly manufactured in the USA and feature high quality ABS-grade polymers, padding to protect the telescope's finish from scratching and other damage, and Velcro adhesive for a tight fit. Astrozap FlexiShields easily roll up into a convenient size that's perfect for transporting to and from star party and dark sky locations, no matter how far away they happen to be. For astronomers in the field, Astrozap FlexiShields are an indispensable tool in the struggle against dew.

By using both active and passive methods of dew resistance, the Flexi-Heat Dew Shield from AstroZap sets itself apart. In addition, it provides protection from objectionable stray light. Each Flexi-Heat Dew Shield features a built-in dew heater strap. Works with either AstroZap's Dual Channel Dew Controller or DC Adapter to perform both active and passive methods of coping with dew, preventing it from reaching your telescope's objective, thereby extending the precious time you have with your telescope.

Power consumption specifications for this Astrozap Flexi-Heat Dew Shield are 14 Watts @ 12 Volts, 1.18 Amps.
