Meade Light Shroud for 12" LightBridge Truss-Tube Dobsonian Telescopes
Sure. Truss-tube model dobsonian telescopes are great when it comes to set up and take down. They're easy to transport and the new wave in large aperture, but they lack just one thing a tube model has...
A way of keeping stray light and dust away from your precious primary mirror!
Sure. A Meade Light Shroud for your Light Bridge Telescope isn't going to block everything, but it certainly helps. Made with lightweight material, this simple "sleeve" fits easily over the truss tube design and really does help keep out extraneous light sources and definitely cuts down on dust. You'll see the contrast difference on faint objects when observing near light sources! Thanks to a flat black interior, most of the light "bounce" is also cured - improving the view. It's a small investment that goes a long, long way!
