I love the Telrad and use it all the time. Bar none. But now that the nights are cooling off, it fogs up on me and I have to take it inside. Nothing else does this to me! :bawling:

What can I do about it?

You can buy a brand new Telrad Tunnel from me, or I can show you how to make your own for a couple of bucks.

Go to Walmart or some other place that sells hobby supplies. Get an 8X10 sheet of Foamies and some Velcro. Make sure to cut out a hole for the switch. Here's the insides:

Try the Kendrick Telrad dew removal system. Model : KE-2003. Around $26.00.

I don't have a Telrad, but I did a search for you.

The Kendrick you quote is only the heater that goes on the Telrad. It also requires the Kendrick Dew Heater controller which sells for $85.

Sorry Don,

Thank YOU! It's frustrating that all the other stuff stays dry - but for that price and ease :foreheadslap: I can handkle it!

Telrad make an Anitfog cover that snaps onto the Telrad body and rotaes over the projection screen. Works graet and costs about$10.00. I like DOn's home made one also.

Good Luck,

I use a Kendrick strip on my Telrad. The cover is also a great idea.
