I like the look of the warming strip for the Telrad.  Finally someone figured out that a Telrad warming strip should be on more than one side, and should serve the dual purpose of warming the viewing window and shielding it from dew, but without obstructing the view and without requiring the user to flip a shield up and down.  And you leave room for turning the adjustment knob on the side.

 

I observe at very dewy dark sites.  The Telrad is always the weakest link in dew prevention.

 

I thought of this years ago and was waiting for one to be produced.  It just makes good sense.  Xorosho!  :waytogo:

Thank you for your comment. This design came to us, after many tests under real conditions.

I'm a big fan of Telrad and this dew shield and heater best saves my finder on the dew!

I received the Telrad dew shield and the extra large dew strip today.  

 

The shield fits very well on my Telrad without obscuring the view through the window.  Over the years, I've tried several different warming strips and gizmos for the Telrad, and also non-heated dew shields.  None of them worked to my satisfaction.   It looks like finally we have something that was designed from top to bottom specifically for optimal dew prevention on the Telrad. 

 

The extra large strip fits around my 31 Nagler - the Terminagler! - with only an inch gap between the ends.  The strip is three inches high, so covers a large section of the eyepiece body.  I'm sure it will keep all my large eyepieces and the Paracorr free of dew.  

 

I hooked the shield and the strip to a 12v supply.  They both warm up well and quickly and stay warm.  Very nice!  

 

These will go with me on my next trip to a dark site.

 

Mike

Can you supply your 4-channel controller with alligator clips instead of the cigarette lighter plug?

We have an adapter that allows you to connect the controller via the crocodiles.

See: Alligator clips on Female Car Cigarette Lighter Socket

Sorry, currently only two regulation channel. 4 outputs, 2 for each channel.

Is there any way to connect the set directly to 220v? I have an observatory and won't use a battery...

Yes, You need to buy a power supply that converts 220 volts to 12 volts. Output 5,5x2,5 power connector. The power supply can be purchased at any store near you.

Plus, our Adapter for Power supply:

Do you know how long orders to North America typically take after orders are placed?

Approximately 14 days. Sometimes slightly less or slightly more.

I ordered a Telrad heater and a dew heater strip for great big eyepieces about 10 days ago because they looked like really good products. I admire the innovation of the dew heater sized to match modern massive ep's and nobody else I know of is making a Telrad heater.

I misread the website and thought it was a 40 day shipping schedule. So I decided order and forget was the best plan. It worked great because when I had a small box in today's mail it took a couple of seconds for it to click. Then it was "All right! Just in time for the extremely heavy Spring dew."

The heater strips look good, well made. I hope to give them a good workout Sunday or Monday night.

.

Installation note - I was able to remove the plexiglass cover/passive dew shield from my Telrad, install the new heater and replace the cover. Now the air trapped by the cover, which was @ 50% effective, will be slightly warmed. I did not replace the screw holding the cover on as it would have passed through an active part of the element but retained the cover with gaffer's tape. The cover's the one with the "flapper" on the objective end, standard stuff.

Thanks for your feedback. We have fixed delivery time and shipping cost.
Today, most of the orders come in a period of 11 days.
Discount period is over, but our prices are also great, and the quality is excellent. ;-)
