Product Details

  • The Celestron Dew Shield DX is an essential accessory that protects your optical tube in the field. It prevents excess moisture in the air from forming condensation on the corrector lens. A dew shield also helps block stray light from entering the telescope for better viewing and astroimaging. Use the Dew Shield DX on your 6 and 8-inch Schmidt Cassegrain, EdgeHD, and RASA (with single dovetail) optical tubes with confidence.

    Construction

    Celestron Deluxe Flexible Dew Shield -for C6 and C8-08This deluxe and flexible dew shield provides a perfect, custom fit. Designed specifically for 6 and 8-inch Celestron optical tubes. It is built from durable PE plastic that is flexible but strong. Extra padding has been added at the tube attachment edge to create a stronger fit on the optical tube. The felt-lined interior absorbs any additional stray light and excessive moisture, creating optimal contrast when viewing and imaging. The large dovetail cutout has been made both wider- to accommodate a 4-inch wide dovetail rail, as well as deeper, to create a more solid connection with the optical tube.

    Attaching the Dew Shield to your optical tube is easy thanks to the Velcro attachment points. Whether your optical tube is 6 or 8-inches, simply adjust the Velcro for the correct fit.

Celestron Dew Shield DX for 6" & 8" SCTs

The product is of high quality. Nice lens hood. It copes with its functions perfectly. Everything fit in size for the Celestron NextStar 8 SE telescope. The hood sits well on the telescope, firmly, there are no gaps. I ordered it to Ukraine via USAinUA delivery. Special thanks to the seller for the good and reliable packaging. Everything arrived in Ukraine intact and harmless. I recommend this lens hood and the seller.

Fits two rail RASA 8 with clippers

I was worried whether this shield would fit my minimally modified RASA8 with its second Losmandy top rail. I quickly realized that making a matching rail indent with a pair of scissors neatly solved the problem.

Dew Shield

This shield is constructed a lot better than I expected. It is made to be stiff but yet flexible enough to fit around the scope securely with Velcro that goes the length of the shield. I expect to have this shield for a long time, as well made as it is, and I would recommend it to anyone needing to buy one.
