Dew Removing Equipment

If you are unfortunate like some of us to live in an area were dew is a problem, you need to take some precautions to prevent dew from forming. I went all out on this equipment since the area I live in is South Louisiana. I use the DewBuster system. It may cost a little more than the others, but you can control the amount of heat and it works great. If you use your scope in the field and supply your own power, this system is a must. It uses a temperture sensor to control the auto heater level and will keep the scope just slighly warmer than the air. With this constance monitoring being done, it only uses power when needed, thus conserving energy. This makes a big difference in the size battery you need to buy. It's great on those long observing nights. I use the heaters as well as my dew shield. Dew is a major problem here.
