R-Sky Observing Hood

The Observing Hood (“Monk” hood style) is a necessary accessory for any amateur astronomer.

Features include:

  • It enables you to keep both eyes open. This is a useful feature because when looking through the eyepiece of a telescope, you usually close your 'unused' eye, which makes observing uncomfortable. With this hood, you can keep both eyes open because its large size shields you from extraneous light, creating the effect of being fully immersed in outer space. This is especially noticeable when using a pair of wide-angle eyepieces. 
  • The Observing Hood reliably and comfortably shields light, increasing contrast and reducing glare in the eyepiece. See more without buying a new telescope! 
  • It can be put on quickly and easily, even in the dark, and thanks to its three positional shutter buttons, the hood fits any neck size. R-Sky has also taken the observer's seasonal clothing changes into account. The run of the shutters will be sufficient even when you're wearing winter clothing.
  • When not in use (while taking a break from your observations), you push the hood back by pulling on the top part.
  • Ideal for daytime and nighttime observation
  • It is manufactured from high-quality cotton with a denim exterior.

Great addition to my visual observing gear. It's nice and light and easily clips around your neck. It provides plenty of shielding from extraneous light sources. The only light i ideally want is coming from my target. Top service from FLO again.
