Thanks very much for all the advice. I could definitely see more detail last night, but I was out there too long and my scope started getting damp, another problem that's new to me, dew.

DIY Cheap Dew shield

Camping mat £5

stickbacky velcro strip £2

(from everyones favorite auction store)

Make a tube thats about twice the length of the scope aperture, velco it up and away you go. It will also help with unwanted light pollution.

Hi Rich.

The camping mat dew shield does a great job of keeping my scope dew free. Plus as suggested by brantuk, keeping your EPs in your pocket does a good of of stopping them from fogging up.

I kept my EPs in my pocket last night and didn't have any problems, although the dew problems were nowhere near as bad.
