About this product

Model:  lynxastro_dew_strap_20cm
Part Number:  lynxastro_dew_strap_20cm

Lynx Astro premium quality dew heater straps, made in the UK. 

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

Simply wrap one around the telescope tube near the optics and secure it there with its integrated Velcro/elastic strap. A gentle heat is then transferred to the optics until the temperature is slightly warmer than the dew point. 

This heater strap is 20cm long, please check the circumference of your eyepiece or finderscope first to ensure this will provide a good fit. 

Will I need a Dew Controller? 

A simple 12V Dew Heater Supply Cable can be used to connect the tape to a suitable 12V power-supply. When connected this way the tape is essentially running on full-power. This won't harm the tape but with smaller telescope apertures it might result in the optic being warmer than necessary which can effect the view and waste energy. The solution then is to use a Dew Controller that regulates the heat (also enables you to use more than one heater tape). Lynx Astro Dew heater tapes are compatible with most good dew controllers, including those manufactured by Lynx Astro & HitecAstro.

Wouldn't be without these
Thursday, 9 December 2021  | 

It wasn't long ago that I purchased by first telescope for astrophotography. Despite the endless weeks of cloudy nights that came with the delivery of my scope (FLO, please stop putting clouds in the boxes!), I remember the growing excitement at the prospect of capturing my first target. After spending a couple of precious hours setting things up, image the disappointment when peering into the scope and seeing all that condensation knowing that the night is lost and another 3 weeks of clouds before the next opportunity presents itself! Never again.

I have purchased a number of Lynx Astro dew straps for the main scope and the guide scope and haven't had a problem with them at all. The shorter length straps do seem to warm up more quickly than the longer straps and so some experimentation on how much heating power is needed may be useful. I use mine with an ASI-AIR pro which has some basic power control and that suits me.

Perhaps the only niggle is the need for an additional adapter cable for the ASI-Air (available from FLO) but apart from that, I'll never be without these again.

Usual Boring First Class Service (Yawn)
Monday, 1 February 2021  | 

Brilliant service as ever from FLO, from communication regarding stock, to superfast delivery, even now when many businesses are struggling to maintain their usual offer. Very knowledgable staff and a first class experience from start to finish. Highly recommended. The Lynx heater straps are of high quality and do exactly what it says on the tin.
