AstroZap Light Shroud for 16" Truss-Tube RC Telescopes


For protecting your truss-tube Ritchey-Chretien from the influence of dew and stray light, this Astrozap Light Shroud is an essential accessory. Although the Truss design saves weight, it also leaves a lot of space between the primary and secondary exposed to the air, leaving the optics vulnerable to dew and stray light. This can cause image quality to be compromised, and possibly ruin your observing session. Made in the USA, the fabric used to make this AstroZap Light Shroud is a blend of nylon and cotton. It is tailored to fit over the telescope's trusses without difficulty. Drawstrings on the top and bottom help to fix the shroud in place, while also providing a subtle dew prevention system akin to Astrozap dew shields. Unlike other light shrouds on the market, Astrozap's light shrouds feature a distinct design that maintains its shape even under severe dewing conditions and will not dip into the light path.
