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 control and delay dew forming on your exposed optical surface a problem very common in average UK conditions. Kendrick Dew Shields are aldo compatible with dew heater heaters, which are installed just in front of the neoprene strip on the inside ot the dewcap. This is the best setup for UK or European conditions because it provides all-night dew free operation and reduces the power setting for the dew heaters.
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. This is especially important for refractors. The inner flocked lining protects your optics from dust by trapping it. Telescopes with dew shields installed usually have cleaner front lenses. We highly recommend the use of a dewshield if you have a SCT for this reason alone. Although refractors usually come with dew shields built-in, owners often add a dew cap to delay the onset of dew, and to reduce the effects of external light pollution even further.
