TeleGizmos 365 Series Cover for Fork-Mounted 16" SCT or 11"-12" with Wedge
TeleGizmos - 365 Series Cover for Fork-Mounted 16" SCT or 11-12" Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescopes with Wedge
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. 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. No sissy material here. 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% 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. Can you imagine putting your equipment to the test with a 40 PSI, 1/2" 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 @ 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 warranted 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.

Well made cover
This is my third 365 scope cover, for different setups, and it is once again up to their high standard of quality. Excellent protection and great fit.
A perfect cover
My telescope is set up in my backyard 24/7/365 without the benefit of an observatory to house it. I've been using this particular type of cover now for about 6 years or more. The first was designed for an 8" SCT on an Alt Az mount and did a wonderful job protecting my telescope from the elements. After the interior finally started wearing, I bought the 10" size as my telescope was then permanently mounted on a wedge. Last year I upgraded to Meade's 12" SCT with super wedge. The older 10" cover gave me some protection for the more sensitive parts of the telescope but it was tight and barely covered the telescope mount base. I purchased the cover for 12" scopes mounted on a wedge, and I am delighted. The cover goes a bit more than half way down the tripod legs giving me lots over coverage over the telescope. Based on my past experience with this cover I have no fear of water leakage, summer or winter, and the interior thermal barrier helps keep the interior temperature at reasonable levels. It's large enough I should be able to keep some of my accessories attached to the tube rather than having to remove them after each night's use. Although a bit more expensive than standard covers I absolutely recommend this cover for anyone who leaves their telescope set up outdoors for extended periods of time.
