Kendrick FireFly heaters are designed for the astronomer who requires a dew prevention system that is both economical in price and power. Although unable to perform up to the high standards of their Premier brand of heaters, astronomers and anyone else requiring heated optics for dew prevention can depend on Kendrick FireFly heaters to perform under all but the most demanding observing conditions. Note that if your observing site gets temperatures that approach freezing on the nights you like to observe, you should consider other heater options.

The FireFly heaters will extend the life of your battery between charges since they have lower power requirements than other dew heaters, and rest assured that the FireFly heaters will mildly disperse heat into your optics without compromising the figure of your telescope or camera optics or sending heat into the ungrateful atmosphere! Independent tests have clearly shown that the FireFly heaters are very effective in directing most of the heat into the optics, which is the secret to preventing dew.

Product QuestionsQuestion by: Steph on May 12, 2014 4:35:48 PMThe length of the cables for both straps are 45 inches long. If you use these with the Kendrick dew controllers, you will add about another 75 inches in length so that should be more than adequate length to power these straps without having the power source out of reach.Answer by: Roderick (Admin) on May 13, 2014 11:37:32 AM
