- Questions & Answers
Product QuestionsWith the Astrozap AZ-245 can the "245" be interpreted to mean the workable diameter is about 245mm or ~9.5 - 9.6"?
I ask because I need a good light shield to go onto my trusty Orion 8" F/5 Newt where the end rings are right at 233mm. The AZ-237 model says diameter is 9.25" where 237mm is 9.33".. The AZ-237 seems a close fit but too small is bad news of course.
So to make a short question long do you think either the AZ-237 or AZ-245 would work for my 8" F/5 imaging scope?
Thanks in Advance!
RonQuestion by: Ron Crouch on Sep 28, 2015 1:07:00 PMThe part number does not correlate to the diameter of the dew shield. The AZ-245 is the same 233mm diameter as the AZ-237 as it is for a different 8" Celestron scope. It may work on your scope, but you may need to shim the shield if your scope is more than 1-2 mm smaller than 233mm.Answer by: Chris Hendren on Sep 28, 2015 5:51:00 PM
