I notice some current postings advise using a quilted moving blanket over the gear
before the Telegizmo cover. That is a good idea.
Condensation can be an issue but, as others have suggested, placing a warming
lamp near the mount base will take care of it.

Kent,



Thanks for your response.



I have a 115 APO refractor and a 260mm Mak-Cass for the AP1100; I would love to have a set up I don’t have to set up/break down each session, and the Telegizmos 365 looks like it might be the perfect way to go.



We’re in a similar climate zone; have you had any difficulty with condensation, etc.?  I’m also considering purchasing the tripod cover as well for maximal protection.

Yes they are excellent.
I had them make a custom one for my AP160 and RCOS 12.5 RC on my AP1200GTO mount.
They are a heavy coated material.

Wondering if anyone has experience using Telegizmos Telescope [and Tripod] covers – or any comparable telescope cover for outdoor use.



They come in a ‘standard’ size recommended for only a few months outdoor use, and their ‘premium’ model for long-term outdoor use.



My concern is not only for the telescope but my beloved AP 1100 and GP4 as well.



Thanks, Ted

Got it. I'll need a bit of time to study it, but I'll be here a little while yet.
