Orion Light Shroud for SkyQuest XX12 Dobsonian Telescope



The 15097 Light Shroud is designed to fit the SkyQuest 12" Truss Tube Dobsonian telescopes. While you can use a Truss Tube Dobsonian without a light shroud, adding one will increase your image contrast and will help to keep dust and dew from settling on the mirrors.



The SkyQuest XX12 Light Shroud is custom-designed to fit these telescopes like a glove and they are made in the USA. The fabric used is a breathable stretch nylon and elastic has been sewn onto both ends to enhance the fit further.



WARNING! When using a truss tube Dobsonian telescope for solar observing, always use a Light Shroud and a properly sized solar filter. When you install the Light Shroud make certain there are no gaps between the Shroud and the telescope where direct sunlight can reach the telescope mirror. When a truss tube telescope (equipped with a solar filter but no Light Shroud) is pointing near (not at) the Sun, direct sunlight can hit the mirror and focus on the solar filter or other portions of the telescope. This can lead to eye injury or damage to the telescope. Using a Light Shroud protects your telescope from peripheral sunlight.



Before using any telescope for solar observing, make sure to install all dust caps or other protective covers on all optical components such as finder scopes to keep sunlight from passing through them. Glancing through an uncovered optical system, even for an instant, can cause permanent eye damage. Always install protective caps on all optical instruments if left out during daylight hours.
