Dew shields create a miniature atmosphere over and around your corrector plate or telescope front.  Physics balances the temperature in this zone to keep dew at bay.  Dew shields come in three varieties: hard shields, soft (or flexible) shields, and heated dew shields.  Hard shields are typically made of rolled aluminum and will match the exterior of your optical tube.  Soft, or flexible, dew shields are great for portability and will velcro into place.  Heated flexible dew shields are an excellent choice where moisture is a serious problem.  The addition of a heated element only increases the dew shields' ability to stave off the collection of moisture.
