Meade - #614 Dew Shield

Details

This lightweight Meade metal dew shield is made of rugged 20-gauge welded-seam aluminum. The interior is painted flat black to absorb stray light for higher contrast. Its exterior is painted Meade blue to match the finish of all current and past Meade 14" Schmidt-Cassegrains. The durable powder-coated finish is baked on for long life and chip resistance. Nylon thumbscrews in heavy-duty metal inserts lock into the groove in the corrector plate rim to hold the dew cap onto the telescope optical tube and assure a secure fit.

The shipping carton is large, but light. Air freight charges are based on the space a carton takes up in a plane, not the weight of the large hollow carton. Be prepared for a very large shipping charge equivalent to shipping a 54 pound package if you need this dew shield shipped by air.



 


 


Meade 14" Dew Shield #07590. The #614 Dew Shield inhibits the deposition of dew on the lens surface in climates prone to high nighttime moisture in the air. Attaches to the front lens cell of the 14" LX200-ACF in moments and locks securely onto the front of the telescope with three nylon thumbcrews.


In moist climates water particles suspended in the atmosphere may condense on the front surface of the telescope's correcting plate. This dew formation may be inhibited significantly allowing greater observing time by the attachment of a dew shield, essentially a tube extension. The high quality materials and finish are identical to the main tube of the telescope and the use of counterweights is recommended due to its weight and distance from the declination axis. Fits onto the front lens cell of all 14" LX200 including GPS and ACF models.


Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.
