Mountain Instruments Dew-Guard Secondary Mirror Heater

$17 or Make an Offer (plus shipping)
 (Added 04/13/15)
Contact JMI and mention Red-tagged Dew-Guard when placing order.

The Dew-Guard is a temperature-controlled heating system designed to help prevent dew formation on a telescope's secondary mirror with a minimum of optical disturbance.  It senses both the ambient temperature and the glass temperature using two sensors, one on the circuit board and one on the pigtail.  It compares the two and applies power to the heaters as necessary.  A small LED indicates power consumption and is at "half" brightness when there is a 2 degree difference.  An adjustable potentiometer allows for a difference of up to about 15 degrees C.  The normal range is about 2 to 3 degrees C.  The unit is factory set at about 2 degrees.

Polar Scope with Constellation Reticle

D
esigned for both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
Includes standard 1/4-20 thread for LED Reticle Illuminator.
Reticle Illuminator and Mounting Hardware NOT included.
Reticle Epoch Lines are outdated but usable (1990, 2000, 2010).


The first picture at left shows two polar scopes (with and without protective cap and showing the loose mounting ring in two different positions).  The second picture shows the reticle.

$12 (plus shipping)
 (Updated 04/13/15)
Contact JMI and mention Red-tagged Polar Scope when placing order.

The polar scope
allows a telescope to be quickly and easily aligned with the North or South pole.  Once mounted, a time consuming initial alignment must be made using the star drift method (except when installed on a Losmandy G11 or similar telescope which has the proper size mounting hole and threads machined into the mount).  All subsequent alignments will be as good as this initial alignment but far less time consuming.  To do an alignment, you simply rotate the scope to align the constellation reticle with your naked eye view of the sky then adjust the telescope mount to align two stars with the reticle.
