I ordered an Astrozap dew shield for Meade ETX125 recently. Product exactly as described and good quality. Delivery was fast and efficient and item was very well packaged. All in all a very good experience.

Firstly, FLO, as always, very quick to answer any queries and with this purchase I got confirmation very quickly from them on correct size option to order. Once ordered - it arrived within two days to the north east of Scotland! Very pleased and I am always very happy to deal with all the FLO team who always seem to go above and beyond.
Regarding the Astrozap Dew Shield. This is made of good quality material, including the strong velcro strip, and it has a lovely soft rubber double lined section where it goes over the scope which makes fitting easy, very snug and prevents scratches to the telescope. I ordered the 7" and 8" Mak./SCT/CPC option for my Sky-watcher 8" Newtonian (200PDS). What I would have preferred was another 10mm-15mm of overall length to cover all the velcro when rolled into shape and put on, more from an aesthetic point of view but then again it is always dark when I use it anyway! There is still more than enough grip with the 80% plus velcro that is attached so I am not concerned there and so far it keeps it shape really well along the whole length. I bought mine not so much for dew control but to give extra light shielding, every extra helps. I tend to either store this in my workshop (still in shape ready to be pushed onto the scope in 2 secs) or on the scope itself. I would have given 5 stars, however, I dropped one star due to the cost which I think could be a little cheaper given the technology involved. Maybe if I had previously suffered from dew forming issues I may have seen more advantage and justification for the cost. Overall though, a very recommended accessory and I am sure it will last the lifetime of the scope.

For C8 XLT - with top vixen bar
Saturday, 23 May 2020 | Iain
Good fit initially, as has notch for the vixen bar used to attach OTA to mount plate.
Infortunatlet, not such a good fit once you add the top vein for your guide scope.
Still happy to give it a 4 tho', as I may just put a second notch in

Only downside is the depth of Velcro could be more allowing it to be tightened sufficiently so it doesnt flop. I bought this as a recommended item with the 127 Skymaster.
Expected it to be snug.
Once you hace mastered the velcro... the dew will not come again

Lightweight, non reflective and effective dew prevention. It always sits on my SCTs (C5,C8,C14) once I remove the scope cap or I soon regret it...
However I do find the velcro tricky to adjust.
Consequently I have them always roll up at the right diameter and I don't unroll (flatten) them for storage (in my garage).
Still, being able to transport them as a flat piece of kit (in a car trunk) is very handy, but will get you more work during the set up.
