This tube of approximately the same diameter as your telescope tube reduces the amount of dew that builds up on the corrector plate.  It also serves as a lens shade, preventing stray light from falling upon the corrector plate and greatly improving contrast.

This shade is manufactured of rugged, soft Foamex plastic.  It can be stowed away flat after usage.  Celestron employs a thicker material that won't crack as easily as other manufacturer's efforts, with sewing instead of inexpensive glue for a longer service life.

    Lens Shade/Dew Cap is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good value and very useful This product seems a bit mis-shapen when it arrives. Don't try to put it on the scope and affix it there. Just join the velcro strips and leave it to stand. It will assume a circular shape. One end is padded inside and fits snugly over the end of the scope and in my case corrects the back heavy imbalance of the tube. So: 1.It is great value 2.It protects the corrector plate from dew 3.It protects from stray light 4.It is easy to affix and remove. The only downside is that it is bulky if you leave it rolled up ready for use (which I do), but what the heck!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job if you don't need a heater A lens shade / dew shield is a necessity because the SCT design attracts an insane amount of dew in not much time. This one seems to be made specifically for the CPC C11 because there is no cutout for a dovetail. It still protects from dew, but would fit better if it had the cutout. The letters also start to come off after a few uses. It is inexpensive compared to some others though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased would recommend - worth the money Excellent device. The thick flexible plastic it is made with provides excellent dew protection. I live in a very humid climate and the corrector lens stays dry much longer than it did using homemade double thickness craft paper dew shield it replaced. Quite pleased with ease of installation also. Well designed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as Advertised! I'm using this on my C11 and it fits great and does its jobs well. B&H had it at the best price around.
