Kendrick dew heaters are designed to fit behind the mirror of most Ritchey Chretien telescopes including the Altair Astro 8RC, 10RC, RC250-TT, RC300-TT & Altair Deepfield Professional RC range.

A flexible, split ring design, makes the heater very easy to install. It fits onto the back of the secondary mirror housing and is held in place by a thin layer of silicone glue or any glue which resists moisture reasonably well (user provided). The Heater is thermally insulated with 1/8" (3mm) thick neoprene sponge foam on the rear of the flexible heater element. This will help the heater to direct the heat into the secondary mirror housing to gently warm the optics, and aid in preventing heat loss into the atmosphere.

Due to some poor quality copies of Kendrick dew controllers appearing recently on the market using cheap components, the warranty is void if used with a non-Kendrick controller or a 12v constant power supply (which is highly inadvisable). If used with a fused Kendrick dew controller, this product has a 2 year limited warranty.
