Heating band for Orion Dew Zapper Pro 4-Channel Dew Prevention System
Sized to fit 80mm (3") to 127mm (5") telescopes to prevent dew accumulation from disrupting view quality

Made in the U.S.A.
Requires Orion Dew Zapper Pro Control Module for operation - sold separately
This Dew Zapper Heating Band for 80mm (3") to 127mm (5") telescopes is part of the larger Dew Zapper Pro 4-Channel Dew Prevention System. The required control module is sold separately. With Dew Zapper Pro you'll never again have to quit an observing or imaging session because dew clouded up your optics. Our advanced dew prevention system powers up to four individual heating bands independently. So you can keep all of your optics -- main telescope, finder scope, guide scope, eyepieces, or other optical accessories -- bone dry in high humidity or dew-prone weather. Five different heating band sizes are available. The heating bands (sold separately) are highly power efficient, drawing only 0.25 amps (for #3518) to 2.5 amps (for #3522) at maximum output. A 10-amp fuse in the control module prevents any mishaps from electrical surges or reversed polarity. And unlike competing dew-prevention systems, the Dew Zapper Pro's heating bands have right-angle cable connections to reduce cable strain and provide a tighter fit. Hook-and-loop fasteners hold the bands snugly around your instrument and accessories. Each heating band comes with a 6'-long cable that plugs into the control module via an RCA-type connector. Removable caps are included to protect any unused ports from exposure to the elements. The control module also has an auxiliary 12-volt port, which allows you to power any 12-volt accessory directly from the module.

I used it last weeks on my 4.71" refractor (Orion) and it works great... I strongly suggest this if your viewing or astrophotography in the evening with a threat of dew/frost... I had the setting between 30% and 40%. I've used passive techniques (dew shields), but the dew will get to your lens... This active technique did stop dew from forming on the objective lens, and kept it clear for many hours. It did not affect the quality of the photos or viewing. I highly suggest getting this equipment.
Works perfect I'm in GA with 100% humidity some nights. I'll tell you what this thing keeps my main scope nice and dry for the whole night. with no problems, so I can get those great images I share with my friends and family. Its a must have if your in a area with high humidity and get that dew on your scope. You wont be disappointed.
I bought this item for my husband as a Christmas gift. He was able to use it immediately due to the weather conditions that we experienced during the Christmas season. He is very pleased with it. The pictures taken from his telescope were very clear and the lens was crystal clear. This is an excellent product!
