Can I leave my telescope outside?
It’s never a good idea to leave your telescope out unguarded overnight due to the potential for moisture, dust, bugs, and wind to damage it. However, a telescope cover is a great option for times when you need to keep your telescope in position before, after, or in between observing sessions.
How do you store a telescope at home?
Store your telescope in a clean, dry, dust-free environment. Opt for a climate-controlled room rather than an uninsulated shed. Keep a telescope cover on whenever it’s not being used.
How can I protect my telescope?
Keep your telescope out of harm’s way by keeping moisture, dust, dirt, and bugs away from it whenever possible. Store it in a climate-controlled indoor area when not in use, and use a telescope cover both when it’s in storage and when it’s outdoors unused for several hours.
