About this product
Part Number: T3G1
TeleGizmos 365-series covers are warranted for one year from date of delivery including all labor and material. If your cover fails due to either a manufacturing or material defect, TeleGizmos will repair or replace the cover during this warranty period. Proof of purchase required. This warranty is fully transferable but does not include normal wear and tear.
TeleGizmos 365-series are the BEST telescope covers money can buy!
Suitable for 8-10" EQ mounted SCTs. 71cm / 28" major top line, 96cm / 38" major height.
The TeleGizmos 365 series are designed for severe weather protection.
Features an inner layer of aluminised material for radiant heat protection coupled to an outer cover of highly water, UV and mildew-resistant acrylic coated woven polyester. This combination of materials provides years of protection, even when used outside 24/7, 365-days a year.
The outer material also offers high strength and abrasion resistance with less than 1% shrinkage or stretch.
Tested in some of the harshest US environments, including the desert southwest, Florida Keys, Colorado @ 8000 feet and the Texas Hill country, the 365 Series has proven itself capable of handling all types of weather.
NOTE: The cover does an excellent job of keeping out the weather but cannot eliminate condensation (the buildup of condensation is sometimes mistaken for a leak). This is true for all telescope covers. So the telescope must be allowed to dry after each use, before applying the cover. If the telescope is used only rarely and/or your area is prone to dew (i.e. in a valley or near a body of water), we recommend you occasionally remove the cover to let the telescope dry.

I had this telescope cover on a long term loan from a friend whilst he was out of the country, I had it covering an Officina Stellare RH200 AT on a HEQ-5 mount and it was just long enough to cover the spreader plate on the tripod where I had my USB hub, Focus controller and Dew heater controllers mounted, fortunately this equipment stayed dry despite some heavy rain and strong winds, However I would feel more comfortable if the cover was another 100mm -150mm longer and i would give it 5 stars if it was. The rig was set up almost continually from October to June, although i did pack everything away on a couple of occasions during very high winds (i didn't want to risk anything getting blown over), the cover provided perfect protection to my kit for that duration. It is the next item on my shopping list although i might be tempted to get the next size up for a little extra length.

Much better than I expected. Very happy, gives me confidence to leave mount outside until I'm ready to bring it back in. Never risk your expensive equipment with the cheaper ones that will not last. Indoors I even cover telescope to protect from dust too lol.
Thanks flo for great customer service.

Arrived in good time and condition , as normal with FLO. Its late spring at the moment and so far to real bad weather. Used it for a classic C8 on NEQ6. Fits fine but lengthwise, I'd have preferred a little longer . It comes just past the leg brace/ eyepiece holder where the powered USB hub and handset sit so expect it will be fine. No ties to secure it with, hence a 4 not a 5. It can get a bit windy where it is to be used so may have to add a strap or something, just in case.

Covers my C8 AVX scope well but It a little short and does not cover the tripod legs too well, hence 4 stars.
Quite expensive for what it is but it is a good quality heavy duty cover that should last for years.
