Home Accessories Dew Control Systems Dew Shields Kendrick Celestron C9.25 Dew Shield 260-275mm OD
Kendrick Dew Shields are constructed of black ABS plastic and are all felt lined for maximum absorbtion of moisture and baffling of stray light. The cap is attached by wrapping it around your telescope just below the front lens or corrector plate ring. The two outside ends are then pressed together using the sewn on velcro. A neoprene rubber strip is included which attaches along the bottom of the dewcap where there is no felt. This provides a friction-fit so that the dewcap will not slide down once attached. It also introduces a gap with enough room to attach a Kendrick dew heater around the telescope OTA on the inside of the dewcap.
Dew Shields will not prevent dew from forming on your telescope but they will delay it. Dew prevention isn't the only benefit of a Dew Shield. They will also improve image contrast by cutting down on the amount of stray light that enters the front of your telescope due to street lights, skyglow, etc.Q. Can I modify my Kendrick dewcap to accomodate dovetails and other hardware?A. Yes you can. All you need is a utility knife and a hand drill. If you do modify our dewcap, you must make sure that the corners of the cut are rounded otherwise the corner could split.
