Astrozap is pleased to announce the addition of our AR series aluminum dew shields for the Meade LXD 55 AR 5” & 6” Refractors.
If you already own a Meade AR refractor you will quickly note that the factory supplied dew shield is very short and only extends 3-3/4 inches from the optics on the 5” model and 4-1/2 inches on the 6” model. Not much help on a dewy night.
The Astrozap replacement shields extend 10” on the 5” model and 13” on the 6” model.
Overall length AR-5 12” & AR-6 15”
The replacement shields are designed to slip onto the lens cell and held securely in place with three nylon thumbscrews. The Meade factory plastic cap will fit our shields as pictured below.
