About this product

Model:  ae_dew_shield_5
Part Number:  ae_dew_shield_5

Astro Essentials premium quality flexible dew shields, made in the UK. 

Robust design using modern materials for high performance and long life!

A dew shield prevents the formation of dew on your telescope optics.

It also prevents stray light from entering the telescope.

Features include an inner black felt liner that reduces reflections for maximum contrast. 

Wrap the dew shield around the end of your telescope tube near the optics and secure it with the integrated Velcro. 

Dimensions are 53cm long and 19cm wide. 

Please check the circumference of your telescope to ensure it will provide a good fit (a few cm are necessary for the velcro areas to overlap). 

Note: the photo is representative; the actual size may differ. 


  • Suitable for use with most 5" / 127mm diameter telescopes.
  • Velcro ensures a snug, secure fit.
  • A rubber trim also prevents slippage.
  • Internally flocked with black felt to prevent reflections.
  • Smooth inner fabric protects the telescope's finish (doesn't scratch or mar the surface).
  • Lays flat or rolls up for easy storage.
  • Two years no-fault replacement warranty.

A must have for a Max 127 to keep off the dew. Well made and should last a long time. Recommend it for the Max 127 and other 5" telescopes.

Perfect fit on my nexstar 127 slt
Looks great with a nice logo too
Great for observing the sun too
Tried it with and without - it appears to keep a lot of lateral glare out
Itís adjustable not only in circumference but also has the advantage of being able to slide up and down enabling the length adjustable too
All in all a very versatile piece of kit at a competitive price
Well pleased Ö. I Like it

Bought the 5Ē dew shield and I am extremely pleased with it. The make up is good and high quality. Fits perfectly on my Skywatcher Maksutov 127 and the Velcro is very secure

This dew shield is a good fit for my eVscope.
I should add that I inadvertently pre-ordered three of the wrong size! FLO were great in dealing with my mistake and gave me refunds without question. They will continue to be my astronomy supplier of choice.

Q1. Will this fit a 130p 130pds ?

A customer tried this 5" 53cm dew shield with a 130pds and found it to be around 5cm too short.

The Lynx Astro 6" heated dew shield is 60cm and may be a better fit.
