Coping with dew when bringing scope inside
Posted 06 October 2005 - 08:23 AM
When I brought my scope inside, however, moisture began condensing everywhere, literally drenching my scope. Using a hair drier and towel, I dried most of the tube and forks, but the corrector remained covered in moisture. I dried the corrector with a hair drier before putting on the cover.
What is the best way to dry a scope before putting it away for the night?

I also air the corector out once the telescope temperature has reached the air temperature, and, insure that everything still looks fine.
I have read a number of different things to deal with this situation. You approach may vary depending on the season also... frost is always interesting.

As long as the bags are sealed, the house humidity can't condense on the objects.. just remember to open the bags in the morning so the equipment can breathe.
