TeleGizmos Solar Telescope Cover for 6" Refractor Telescopes on Large German Equatorial Mounts

Have you ever been at a star party and wished you could protect your valuable optics from the heat of the day? Do you set up your telescope in advance and want to keep it protected? What about night? There's times when you wish you could cover your scope while taking a break or waiting on the clouds or dew point to pass. Don't use a trash bag... Use a Tele Gizmo Solar Telescope Cover!

The new TeleGizmos Solar Telescope Cover is a multi-layer, polyethylene material with a fully aluminized surface. Both you and your telescope will appreciate the heat reflective ability of this very efficient telescope cover. The material is as strong as several layers of tarp and was originally developed for NASA as an insulator for spacecraft. The Telegizmo telescope cover is ultra-strong and lightweight. Its construction is highly resistant to tears and punctures. Far superior to Mylar, this is one tough and durable telescope cover.

Let's take a closer look at the secondary image above....

The multi-layered material consists of a polyethylene base film covered by a reinforcing fiber. From there, a pure coat of aluminum is then applied onto the fiber poly base. For ultimate durability, a clear polyethylene top coat is then applied to protect the aluminum and finalize the multi-layer construction. It all adds up to a lightweight telescope cover that will endure years of use... Even through washing!

I'm looking for a cover for my Takahashi TOA150 on a Paramount ME. The description refers to large GEMs, but lists ones that are smaller than the ME. Would there be a fit problem?
