- Celestron 8
- dew controller
I am not able to much due to our skies aren’t up to par!!
I bought this little controller cause of the price and only needed 2 ports and i was pleased that it worked as stated. It allows me to view the sky a little longer without having to worry about the dew and humidity as much as I would without it.
I purchased this along with a heater band per-emptively for my Celestron 8" RASA. Dew shield on, heater band on snugging up the dew shield and setting the heater to mid range kept the front glass clear as a bell. Its small size and light weight allowed me to place it under the rear section of the losmandi bar making it convenient for all the connections. Reasonably priced and worked as expected.
I am glad there is actual electronics inside. I would REALLY have liked to have a mounting hole solution. I take pictures of space, I don't need my dew controller suspended in it.
I recently moved up to an autoguider/guide scope setup, and needed something to control the dew heaters for the guide scope and the imaging scope. This does the job...no dew problems since I started using it.
Just plugged it in a no more dew or frost. Now own 2 with 3 heaters plugged in. Lightweight so I have it ride on the scope.
