Dew shield for orion xt8

Recommended Posts

I use a homemade dewshield (sleeping pad + velcro) on my Orion XT8i. Not an ingenious construction, but it delays the dew-attack on the secondary mirror

with quite a bit. The 9x50 finder dews up immediately though.

Never experienced dew on the primary, except after observing (bringing the scope  from the cold directly into a warm room).
