About this product

Model:  lynxastro_heated_shield_6
Part Number:  lynxastro_heated_shield_6

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

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

Simply wrap the dew shield around the end of your telescope tube near the optics and secure it with the integrated Velcro. A gentle heat is then transferred to the optics until the temperature is slightly warmer than the dew point. 

Dimensions are 60cm long and 22cm 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). 

An inner black felt liner prevents stray light entering the telescope so enhances contrast.

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 affect 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). 


  • Suitable for use with most 6" / 150mm diameter telescopes.
  • Modern heating element provides even heat distribution and low power consumption.
  • Produces 12W of heating power.
  • Requires approximately 1Ah at 12v / full power.
  • Outer thermal insulating layer prevents heat loss.
  • 2m silicone cable remains flexible even at low temperatures.
  • RCA / Phono Plug with moulded strain-relief - works with most dew controllers.
  • Velcro  ensures a snug, secure fit.
  • Internally flocked with black felt to prevent reflections.
  • Smooth inner fabric protects the telescope's finish (doesn't scratch or mar the surface).
  • 12v power supply required.
  • Two year no fault replacement warranty.

Just about fits

It only just fits round my 6" Mak but it's strong velcro so holds fine. Does the job.

I have no problems with this unit and am hopeful that it will stave off the dew problem efficiently. Great advice and service from FLO, as always.
