Hi,

 

It's been a while since I've been trying to find a tarpaulin for the XX14i at astro gatherings for several days without putting myself on the straw ...

... and I ended up finding for low price in the diy market corner by pure chance smile.gif

The solution: protection tarpaulin for plancha style barbecue ( it's season ), the tarpaulin in question is effective against bad weather, UV filter, 100% polyester and PU coating.

Dimensions: 171X62X106 cm ... a blocking string allows to tighten the tarpaulin at its base ...

The pictures, if you search well you will find the brand of the manufacturer grin.gif

Many kinds of “plastics” and vinyls emit a gas that can end up coating your optics. My wife stores much of her Christmas stuff in Rubbermaid totes. After a year of being in the closet the surface of the tote is covered in a sticky mess. Used to be the same with cars from the 80s and 90s. The vinyls would outgas so bad they left a nearly impossible to remove film on the windshield and side windows.

Hi,

 

My telescope stayed several nights outside with the tarpaulin, this morning storm with heavy rain, no problem the XX14i remained dry...

 

Valid! smile.gif

No problem with my taurpalin, it's only used a few days, for meetings and in my garden, it's not meant to be permanent...
