Dri-Shield for Celestron 8"
Farpoint custom manufactures the Dri-Shield, a series of virtually indestructible front covers for Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. These highly impact-resistant covers are made from ABS plastic, which will not dent, chip or deform, allowing them to fit snugly and always look their best. The cover has a full-diameter felt liner to keep dust and dirt away from your telescope's delicate corrector plate.
A useful and unexpected addition to the Dri-Shield is a molded pocket that holds a rechargeable desiccant container. Now you can be free from worrying about moisture forming on your telescope's corrector plate when you pack up for the night! The desiccant can be “regenerated” in a microwave in just a few minutes, before you go out observing, and it has a lifetime of virtually thousands of uses.
Finally, the Dri-Shield covers have a raised center section, providing clearance and impact protection for those who choose to use aftermarket secondary collimation knobs, such as “Bob's Knobs.”
