TeleGizmos 365 Series Cover for 11" - 14" SCT / ACF / RC on Equatorial Mount
The TeleGizmos - 365 Series Cover for 11-inch to 14-inch SCT / ACF / RC Telescopes on Equatorial Mount
The Tele Gizmos 365 Series Telescope Cover is designed with one thing in mind... To meet the most demanding equipment coverage needs. Imagine a telescope cover that will withstand outdoor extremities 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year! What makes the Telegizmo telescope cover unique is the multi layered/dual material design which incorporates the original TeleGizmo Solar Cover material as an inner radiant barrier coupled to an outer cover made of high count, acrylic coated woven polyester. This combination of materials produces an effective cover system capable of providing years of protection - protection that's backed up by a TeleGizmo Warranty.
Let's take a closer look at the secondary image above...
Thanks to the inner liner radiant barrier, your equipment doesn't suffer from heat build-up on sunny days. Additionally, the solar liner acts as an additional barrier from water penetration. On the outside, the polyester cover layer is the highest quality acrylic coated weave. This American made fabric offers superior resistance to mildew, stands up against decaying qualities of UV radiation, has exceptional strength, and offers great abrasion resistance. Unlike most fabrics, this combination provides less than 1-percent shrinkage or stretch. That means your TeleGizom 365 Series Telescope cover will continue to fit year after year after year!
If you're worried about trusting your expensive telescope equipment to just a cover, don't be. TeleGizmo has thoroughly tested their telescope covers above and beyond the call of duty, putting the equipment to the test with a 40 PSI, 1/2-inch concentrated stream of water, and the telescope inside remained dry. The manufacturer exterior exposure rating for this material is 5 years. A year of strenuous testing in some of the harshest outside environments, (including the desert southwest, Florida Keys, Colorado at 8000-feet, and the Texas Hill country) has proven the 365 Series to be capable of handling all types of weather on a continuous 24/7, 365 basis.
Series 365 covers are warrantied for one year from date of purchase including all labor and material. Continuous 24/7, 365 outside (full weather) exposure is covered in this warranty protection. If your cover fails due to either a manufacturing or material defect, TeleGizmos will repair or replace the cover during this warranty period. Proof of purchase required. This warranty is fully transferable. This warranty does not include coverage of normal wear and tear.

I bought it for additional one. So far , it’s a best cover for my use.
There is a 14" SCT hiding under the cover in the picture...
I needed to cover my scope on the patio for days at a time during clear weather, this works great. It's big, roomy, and has enough weight to hold it's shape. The clips that come with it hold the bottom shut to keep out wind blown dust. I use the old solar cover first, which makes this cover easier to slide on over the telrad and finder, and use a milkcrate to step on, putting this on and taking off. It folds up easily for storage.
Better than expectation
I’ve never seen such as this cover for telescope. It seems like very tough and strong.
A great alternative for full protection
This is my third TeleGizmo 365 Cover since 2010. My 12 inch SCT has been protected by this cover in my back yard without any damage or problems and has worked like new each time I use it. The cover is a great alternative for a constructed or dome structure. Just to provide some extra protection from the sun, I also anchored a 9 foot patio umbrella over the top of the covered scope that is easily removed when observing.
Seems like a well made and thoroughly thought out cover. Would recommend at this point as I,ve only had it for a month, time will tell. Good experience dealing with OPT.
