Re: Newbie questions


 

Along these lines, I use an inexpensive gun safe dehumidifier

It emits low level heat and has very little risk of things catching fire

Howard,
 
If you a cover similar to a ScopeStuff 24/7 cover with reflectix on the inside, just hang a 25 to 40 whatt bulb below the scope, let it run and the heat it generates will keep the mount and electronics dry.  I did that for years with good results.
 
Yours truly,
