Also called a lens shade, Celestron’s dew shield is an essential accessory that protects your optical tube from excess moisture forming condensation on the corrector lens. A lens shade also improves contrast, like the lens shade on a camera lens, blocking out stray light coming from the side of the telescope.
This versatile lens shade can accommodate both 6” and 8” Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tubes. Choose the outer Velcro strip for larger tubes and the inner strip for smaller tubes to customize your fit. Also compatible with the 8” EdgeHD optical tube.
- Protect your corrector lens from moisture and block excess light with the lens shade
- Dual Velcro strip adjust the shade to fit either a C6 or C8 optical tube
