Product description:

Orion SkyQuest XX12 Truss Tube Dob Light Shroud

  • Custom-designed light shroud for the XX12 blocks stray light to improve image contrast
  • Made of opaque black, stretch nylon that fits like a glove and fastens with elastic on both ends
  • Breathable fabric doesn't "sail" in light breezes
  • Lessens accumulation of dust and dew on mirror surfaces during use
  • Made in the U.S.A.

Black shrouds are usually so funereal - but not when you're talking truss tube Dobs! For the best performance from any truss Dobsonian, a shroud is a must. This one, custom designed for the SkyQuest XX12, is made of a stretchy nylon blend material that fits like a glove over the truss poles of the XX12, fastening with thick elastic bands on both ends. The water-resistant, opaque black fabric blocks stray light from entering the optical path, thus improving image contrast. It's also breathable, which minimizes unwanted vibration of the scope in breezy conditions. Use of the shroud will lessen the accumulation of dust and dirt on the mirrors during use, and will help prevent dew from forming on them. Made in the U.S.A.
