Quote:I'm unable to keep my NexStar 8SE "outside", so must stay in the house. With cooler weather coming, also longer cool-down times. Any comments about the benefit of a Lymax Cat Cooler? Thanks-

Quote:As the Edge HD design has a correcting lens in the baffle tube, the Lymax cooler will not fit in the Edge HD scopes.I have used a Lymax Cat cooler for several years in my C11.I have never had an issue with dust inside the OTA from the cat cooler.The filters last a long time, and can be replaced easily.Similar filter material can be found at various hardware stores, and can be cut to fit the Lymax.Steve
