The Telegizmos 365 covers are pretty durable, and do a good job of keeping heat, dew, and precipitation off of equipment. I paid a bit more to get one that is a little oversized to easily accomodate photographic equipment attached to the telescope, but I think that was not necessary. The drawstring is a little awkward, mostly due to its elasticity, and the fact that you have to work it around the circumference of the cover if you want to close up tightly. It is much easier to use spring-hinge clips if you want to effectively close the bottom of the cover. We got hit with Santa Ana winds the other night, and I was worried that the cover might get blown about, but after checking it several times throughout the evening, I was reassured that the it is heavy and sturdy enough to withstand the onslaught. In the morning the site was a mess with leaves and branches blown all over, but the telescope and photographic equipment were safe and secure inside the cover.
Very well made. I keep my gear together for a week at a time and this is a real nice item to protect everything.
This is a very substantial cover. I've yet to see how it'll hold up through northern wisconsin's extreme climate, but it looks like it'll make it okay. Nice product.
It looks like Telegizmo's 365 Series cover has made a believer out of me. I knew I needed a cover for my 5 inch setup, and was a bit apprehensive when I saw the price. After talking it over with the wife she convinced me that with thousands of dollars invested in optics, not to cut corners and get something of quality. I really knew little about this product but right out of the box I could definitely see the quality. Hats off to the crew at Telegizmos. Its just a very well made product.
