AstroZap Light Shield for 16" Dobsonian Telescopes
A noticeable characteristic of the Newtonian telescope design is the location of the eyepiece close to the open end of the optical tube. Frequently, stray light travels over to the reverse side of the optical tube, ruining an otherwise enjoyable observing session. With the AstroZap Dobsonian Light Shield, this light is prevented from obstructing dark adaption and concentration for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Proudly made in the USA, Astrozap Light Shields consist of ABS plastic for the ultimate in durability, style, and ease of care.
