Astrozap AstroStrap Dew Heater for 11" Telescopes
AstroZap 711 AstroStrap Dew Heaters for 11" Telescopes
Do you have a problem with dew? There's a natural solution - Astro Zap Astro Strap Dew Heaters. Here's how it works...
On one side of the AstroZap AstroStrap you find a sponge insulation. This keeps the warmth of the heating element directed towards your optics or appliances and saves energy while it keeps your gear moisture-free. Simply wrap the AstroZap AstroStrap Dew Heater element around your eyepiece or objective cell with the blue cloth side applied to where you want the heat. On the flip side of the AstroStrap, you'll find a black velcro closure. Just pull the AstroZap AstroStrap tight, press the connecting velcro tab to the back of the heater and the elastic holds it firmly in place.
When running a full power, the AstroZap Dew Heater draws 1.57 amps and much less when operating in a normal mode. Each heater comes with a standard six-foot cord and phono-plug connector for 12-volt operation. But remember, the AstroZap AstroZap is just the heater and cord... You'll need a dew system controller to supply the power. No worries! The AstroZap AstroStrap Dew Heater is compatible with Kendrick, Dew Buster, and Thousand Oaks Controllers.
When you use an AstroZap AstroStrap the HEAT is on!

Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
From where comes the energy?
The power for this strap comes from a power source that is not a part of the strap. The best way to power this is to plug the strap into the Astrozap DC Adapter for Astrozap Dew Heaters which will plug into any power source that houses a 12 volt DC outlet
The Meade LX200 Classis doesn't have a "guider" port, instead it has a port labled CCD that a guider plugges into. Will this guider work with the LX200 Classic?
The CCD port on the LX200 Classic will accept any autoguider that has an ST4 autoguiding cable so the Orion Starshoot Autoguider will be perfect for this telescope.
