How do you prevent condensation on your DSLR camera body when it is being used for astrophotography? I see a lot of articles and products for dew prevention on lenses, but what about the camera body? I was reading the manual for the Canon Rebel SL2 (200D), and it says that if condensation or dew begins to collect on the camera body, the camera should immediately stop being used, and it should be turned off, have the battery removed, and then taken somewhere (such as indoors) where the condensation can naturally evaporate. That seems frustrating, but I suppose it would be better than risking damage to the camera body. But it would be particularly bad if it happened during a critical event such as a Lunar eclipse. Are there any methods to prevent this? I was thinking of putting maybe a washcloth over the DSLR camera body, but the manual actually also talks about that as well, and it says to never cover the camera with a cloth or it could overheat.
