Summer is right around the corner, and living in the Southern US, we have already started to have some of those lovely humid nights we have missed all winter! I've been observing casually for a long time, but got more serious late last year, so this will be the first summer of active and consistent observing where I will be responsible for the viewing experience. I have already had a couple nights ruined by dew settling in on the finder scope and am hoping to avoid that through the summer.
What are your best tips for handling humidity and high dew points? Do you have strategies for the different elements of your rig (eg: OTA vs Guide/finder scope vs eyepieces, etc)? Also, what kind of care should you take after a viewing session to protect the equipment for the future?
My personal setup is a 8" Dob, with a RACI and then of course several EP, but I am interested in hearing tips for any kind of setup, or even general tips outside of the equipment (except for moving to a drier climate!).
