Protective covers from Geoptik
Sometimes you need to be able to leave your telescope to stand outside - perhaps to take a break or simply when leaving the telescope set up and aligned for use next time, e.g. on the terrace or in the garden. But, within a short period of time, your beautiful instrument can become wet with dew. And, even if it is kept in a sheltered area, it can also slowly accumulate dirt.
Geoptik covers come in very handy for solving these problems.
The new gold covers are made from a Mylar foil that reflects the heat of the sun. This material was developed by NASA as an insulator for the Space Shuttle and is therefore extremely tear-resistant.
- highly reflective (preventing overheating of the telescope under the cover.)
- inhibits condensation on the telescope when under the cover
- extremely tear-resistant and so very durable
- thermally stable - in particular, the material does not become stiff in extreme cold.
Suitable for smaller telescopes of up to about 6 inches in diameter. The dimensions can be found in the technical data.
Tip: Before you attach the protective cover to your telescope you put an old sheet or towel over the telescope. This will absorb any condensation that may develop under the protective cover.
Note: The cover is not suitable for all-year-round outdoor use.
