TeleGizmos Solar Cover for a 6" Meade LS Telescope
Most ideal observing and imaging sites are in clear open spaces. While the views might be great, you and your gear are often exposed to the harsh direct heat of the sun. The new TeleGizmos Solar Telescope Cover is a multi-layer, polyethylene material with a fully aluminized surface. This material is as strong as several layers of tarp, was originally developed for NASA as an insulator for spacecraft and has excellent heat repelling properties. The Telegizmo telescope cover is ultra-strong and lightweight making it easy to pack along with your telescope. Its construction is highly resistant to tears and punctures. Far superior to Mylar, this is one tough and durable telescope cover.
The multi-layered material consists of a polyethylene base film covered by a reinforcing fiber. From there, a pure coat of aluminum is then applied onto the fiber poly base. For ultimate durability, a clear polyethylene top coat is then applied to protect the aluminum and finalize the multi-layer construction. It all adds up to a lightweight telescope cover that will endure years of use...
