Review by:
I bought this for an 8" Meade SCT and it works fine. It is easy to size, easy to install and it stays secure during viewing thanks the the rubber strip on the inside. I bought an Astrozap dew shield before for my 6" refractor, and it also works great. The difference with the refractor the dew shield seated in front of the lens cell so a dew heater strip could be placed behind the shield directly over the cell. With the SCT, the shield's rubber strip sits over the lens cell and effectively insulates it from the dew heater. There's a reason Astrozap makes a model with a built in heater, and if you need dew heat, you need one with the integrated heater.

I ended up replacing it with an aluminum dew shield , which matches the finish on my Meade SCT exactly, and works fine with my existing dew heaters. (Posted on 5/10/2015)
