The Vixen Dew Heater is great for protecting the objective lenses of your refractors or compound telescopes (Schmidt or Maksutov Cassegrains) from condensation building up on them. Unless you’re in a desert, especially while viewing at night, condensation can form on the front objective lens of a telescope, ruining your night of observing. By hooking up a heated strip around the end of your optical tube, you prevent the build up of dew. This unit is very portable, making it also usable by photographers, to keep their lenses from getting covered by condensation from humidity.
