- Specifications of the Small Geoptik Telescope Cover: Diameter: 94cm, Length: 135cm
- — The cover reflects sunlight and thus prevents a heat buildup inside. As a result you will not have to wait as long until the telescope is cooled down in the evening.
Compatible Telescopes (Examples):
— Schmidt-Cassegrains up to approx. 35cm aperture
— Dobsonians and Newtonians up to approx. 30cm aperture
— Refractors up to approx. 15cm aperture
— and many others
Geoptik Telescope Covers
The Geoptik Telescope Covers provide protection from weather influences and dirt if you wish to keep your telescope outside overnight. The cover is not meant as a permanent shelter, but it is ideally suited for “observing weekends” or star parties where you do not wish to put everything back inside, only to set everything up again the next day.
Advantages of Geoptik Telescope Covers:
— The cover reflects sunlight and thus prevents a heat buildup inside. As a result you will not have to wait as long until the telescope is cooled down in the evening.
— Three layers for perfect insulation and protection
— The telescope covers are waterproof
Geoptik telescope covers are a multi-layer design. The outer layer is highly reflective (similar to Mylar) to reflect away the sun’s radiation and heat. Underneath there are two plastic layers for rigidity and insulation. Even if one of the layers gets punctuated the other two layers will still keep water away from the telescope. Through the three-layer design the telescope covers have a long life-span.
Practical Tips from TS:
Use an old cloth under the telescope cover. This cloth will draw the remaining moisture so that this moisture doesn’t condense on the telescope.
