Orion Shroud for XX16G Go-To Truss Tube Dobsonian Telescope
Orion SkyQuest Truss Tube Dobsonian telescopes let you enjoy big-aperture telescope performance anywhere since they can be easily broken-down into conveniently portable components. For the best performance from any truss Dobsonian, a shroud to shield the optics from peripheral light is a must. This Light Shroud, custom designed for the 16" SkyQuest XX16 Dobsonian telescope, is made of a stretchy nylon blend material that fits like a glove over the truss poles of the XX16, fastening with thick elastic bands on both ends. The water-resistant, opaque black fabric blocks stray light from entering the optical path, thus improving image contrast. It’s also breathable, which minimizes unwanted vibration of the scope in breezy conditions. Use of the shroud will lessen the accumulation of dust and dirt on the mirrors during use, and will help prevent dew from forming on them. Made in the U.S.A.
