Never said I liked the ones I make... But I like it much better than the commercially available dew shields.
Why? Many commercially available dew shields have nice sewn-on Velcro, good flocking and a padded section that grips the OTA.
I don't sew. I have to glue the strips of Velcro on my home-made dew shields. After multiple nights of use under dewy conditions, the Velcro strips start to come loose. Sewn-on Velcro doesn't.
The commercially available dew shields are just better. The only problem with them sometimes is when I can't find one to fit a particular scope.
I don't love or hate dew shields. But I accept they are useful to help keep dew off and shield the optics from ambient light.
