TeleGizmos 365 Series Cover for 4" - 5" Equatorial Refractor Telescopes
The 365 Series Cover for 4-Inch to 5-Inch Equatorial Refractor Telescopes by TeleGizmo:
TeleGizmo's 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.
Thanks to the inner liner radiant barrier, your equipment doesn't suffer from heat build-up on sunny days. What's more, 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 and stands up against decaying qualities of UV radiation. Add to that exceptional strength and abrasion resistance. Unlike most fabrics, this combination provides less than 1-percent shrinkage or stretch. That means your TeleGizmo 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. Can you imagine putting your equipment to the test with a 40 PSI, 1/2-inch concentrated stream of water? TeleGizmo did... 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 8,000 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.

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.
A cover worth the price
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.
