  10. hello stargazer !! ....welcome to the forum .....c ya around!
  11. well thats a lot of stuff to get started with ....... well happy hunting ! clear skies
  12. i dont know exactly but dew shields only slow down the dew formation process though it wont stop it. For better results dew heaters or a dew heater strip may be used .....
  13. Hello astronurse ....... yes you can clean the dew of ur scope ( your scope's awesome ) but with a gentle hand!....you may also use a 120v hair dryer but that too on lowest settings! and no worries u can use the scope without the dew shield too and do some ap! clear skies
