Astrozap understands that dew is a growing problem among amateur astronomers. The effects of dew are the same as when it collects on a car windshield; you will find thick layer of condensed water, or dew, in the wee hours of the morning on your scope’s lens when you’re at a location with a high enough humidity level and an air temperature ideal for dew formation. When dew collects on your telescope’s lens, it is important not to wipe it or you will risk damaging the anti-reflection coatings.
That’s where Astrozap comes in. High Point is proud to carry a wide selection of Astrozap telescope dew shields, heaters to prevent and eliminate dew when it does occur. Astrozap also produces flexible ABS-grade polymer dew shields as well as rigid aluminum dew shields for most telescope apertures on the market today, and if you require additional protection, they make a selection of dew heaters and Astrozap controllers that can come to the rescue when dew threatens to blanket your telescope's optics. Another popular item is Astrozap solar filters, made with Baader solar film. Sizes are available for most telescopes and will allow white light views of our Sun without doing damage to your eyes or your optics.
