Meade #608 Dew Shield #07284. Inhibits the deposition of dew on the lens surface in climates prone to high nighttime moisture in the air. Fits onto the front lens cell of the 8" LX90 and LX200 models. Also compatible with older Meade 8" SCT's. Attaches and detaches from front lens cell of the 8" LX90-ACF and 8" LX200-ACF in moments. Locks securely onto the front of the telescope with three nylon thumbscrews.
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 (vertical) axis. Fits onto the front lens cell of all 8" LX90 and 8" LX200 including GPS and ACF models as well as older Meade 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain models including 2080, LX50, and LX200 "Classic".
Product carries full one year Meade factory limited warranty.
