I ordered this dew shield for my new Celestron C90 Mak. It's delivered as a flat piece of fairly stiff pebble-grained poly plastic with black felt lining and a band of dense foam along one side. I pre-rolled the sheet into a cylinder a bit smaller than the diameter of the scope objective mirror to put a curve into it. That's so the strips of velcro that hold it in a cylinder shape don't have to fight the tendency of the plastic to revert to a flat sheet. After a bit of trial and error, I was able to form a cylinder that would hold the forward end of the scope firmly but still enable me to remove it from the scope without unrolling it. That's facilitated by the strip of foam on the inside of the cylinder. From then on it's a simple matter of pushing the cylinder onto the forward end of the scope and eye-balling it so it's parallel to the scope tube. It's easy to adjust the dew shield forward and aft and axially on the scope tube to get maximum coverage without causing...
I looked into making my own dew shield, but the time, effort, thought and expense of fabricating a functional but inferior product seemed to add up to more than the $30 w/ shipping. This fits both my C90 and my Orion ST80-A. Used it for 2+ hours with each scope within 8 degrees of the dew point, no problem. Car was wet; optics were dry.
