- Meade 12" Light Bridge Dobson
We think the new Meade Light Bridge Dobsonian telescopes raise the bar to a new level in the small to mid-size Dob category. As such, we have developed a very unique dedicated cover design for the Light Bridge.
The TGLB-12 incorporates two main sections: A cylindrical truss section with adequate circumference to allow for clearance of the standard mounted finder. The rocker section is box shaped to provide full coverage and enough vertical height for total coverage around the rocker base. Double lap seams with micro stitching attach the these two main sections and provide high water penetration resistance. Combined with our solar material's water proof quality, you can be assured of complete rain protection.
Protection from rain is not the only key benefit of our covers. The radiant barrier effect of our material will protect the scope from harmful UV and heat build-up. This reduction of daytime temperature build in the scope will reduce scope cool down times. The TGLB-12: Outstanding protection for your scope. Currently available for the 12" model, covers for the 8" and 10" available soon.
The Telegizmo covers are lightweight and longer lasting than any telescope cover on the market today. Basically, we don't recommend long term 365 exposure because most of the time this will cause the material to degrade at approximately 4-6 months. If used like most customers...2-3 days to 2-3 weeks at a time, the covers will last for years. (The TGD1 weighs 9 oz). Not just a plastic bag, but multiplayer insulator. The heat reflective performance of the cover is like Mylar but with a material strength equal to a multi-layer light weight tarp. The material was originally developed for NASA as an insulator in spacecraft. It is very strong, light, tear and puncture resistant and is highly superior to Mylar in durability. Most Telegizmo covers open on the end. However the refractor covers open on the side. All have a sown in drawstrap to close the open end.
• Water proof
• Highly reflective
• Greatly reducing scope temperature on scopes left outside in sunlight.
• They can be securely fastened to your scope with the built in draw string.
• The TeleGizmos material is unaffected by high wind.
• Highly tear and puncture resistant.
• Safe to minus 200 F
Our material has extreme temperature tolerance; they stay malleable in temps well below freezing and are unaffected by summer sun and heat. We also can produce custom sized covers for almost any type of application including equipment tables, laptops, any type of accessory and more. Let us know what you need and we will work with you to produce it.
