The DDC-2 was designed to replace the plastic dust caps included with most telescopes. The beautifully machined cap has the additional benefit of keeping your equipment dry with the desiccant included inside the cap. The DDC-2 is 2.0" so it will fit into any 2.0" accessory / eyepiece opening.
It can be argued that the single most important 'accessory' for a telescope is its dust cap. Important for both the front and rear of the telescope, dust caps prevent debris and other air-borne particles from polluting the front objective and/or corrector and the inside of the optical tube when the telescope is not in use. While it is true that front objective can be cleaned relatively easily if dust gets inside the optical tube, that is an entirely different matter.
Most telescope manufacturers provide an unattractive -- somewhat flimsy, often plastic -- cap for the back (eyepiece-end) of the their telescopes, regardless of the price of the telescope. Now you can protect your expensive equipment in style.
The 'plug' portion of our dust cap hollowed-out to hold desiccant. The top portion of the cap screws on snugly, with an O-ring, to insure that the desiccant wont be wasted on outside air and moisture, but will instead, draw the moisture from the inside of your telescope through the breathing holes machined into the bottom of the plug.
