Model: astrozap_shroud_flextube-2Brand: Skywatcher
This premium quality breathable fabric light-shroud improves image contrast, prevents dew and protects the mirror from dropped eyepieces!
Two sewn-in flexible ABS bands prevent the cloth from obstructing the light path and quick-release drawstrings ensure a secure fit.
The shroud remains on the tube, folding neatly when the telescope is retracted.
Astrozap seem to have cornered the market on light shrouds. Light shrouds always seem a bit pricey to me for what they are, but having said that fit and finish on the Astrozaps is superb - and at least the FLO price is cheaper than all the rest!
Bought 10inch shroud for my flextube sky-watcher ,Good quality but pretty pricey, good service from FLO, will use again.
I ordered the 10" version of this shroud to replace my home made camping mat solution. It was very simple to install. I love the fact that I can leave it in place the whole time so set up time is kept to a minimum. It also looks much more professional.It's a very neat solution and keeps stray light our entirely. Equally importantly it keeps the airflow from the cooling fan I have added moving up the tube. I had seen some comments that the latest version being offered only had one support hoop. I can confirm that the item comes as pictured with two hoops. There is slight sagging of the material when the scope is at a low angle but this doesn't encroach on the light path to the mirror. The only down side is its an expensive solution - a shroud is essential with a flextube design in my opinion but having to pay £60 is a bit painful. The fact that I ordered it shows I still thought it was a worthwhile investment. As always the service from FLO was first rate.
I bought one of these light shrouds for my new Skywatcher 250PX flextube dobsonian.The materials and construction are of high quality.The shroud itself is easy to fit.(1 star off because of the price. Having said that FLO do offer the lowest price in the UK!)
