The large diffusing lens results in a very large and evenly illuminated light cone, which can also be adjusted by a sliding mechanism. By using a power-saving LED lamp, the battery life (1 x AA-LR6) is up to 100 hours. Of course, the robust lamp housing made of aluminium is splash-proof according to IPX4 and therefore particularly well suited for outdoor applications. The side cutouts on the front of the ASTRO R-LITE provide a 360° signal function. The 50 cm long carrying strap with quick coupling and an extra belt clip included in the scope of delivery ensure that the flashlight is always quickly at hand.

Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV
The 360 IV Lens Heater is designed to prevent camera lenses and telescopes from fogging up due to dew. It is also well suited for eyepieces.The heating element is a carbon fiber heater with a high thermal efficiency. The textile heating element provides great flexibility compared to other heating materials. The power cord (USB cable) has a particularly high flexibility to be still elastic at low temperatures. A very flexible Velcro tape allows for quick and easy attachment to and removal from the lens. The tape can be easily removed from the lens without pulling tightly. The heating tape has a very low power consumption and can be operated with a 10,000 mA battery for up to 14 hours.The Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV in detailWhen moisture in the air comes into contact with an object whose temperature is lower than the ambient temperature, small drops of water form - so-called dew condensation. Astrophotography often suffers from such lens fogging and the photo turns milky. Because the temperature and humidity change during the night and the camera becomes cooler than the ambient temperature, it is important to warm the objective's or telescope's lens by using heaters to prevent it from fogging. We recommend using the Lens Heater 360 IV when you want to do astrophotography or night photography on the coast, in the mountains or in cold regions. The heating elements are made of carbon fibers with improved heating performance, introduced for the fourth generation Vixen Lens Heater 360 IV. They efficiently keep the lens warm and fog-free with minimal power consumption. The heater temperature reaches 10 degrees Celsius above the ambient temperature (at 20 °C outside temperature and no wind). However, it varies according to influences in the environment. For power supply the lens heater is equipped with a detachable coiled cable (USB Type-C), up to 50 cm long. The 360 IV lens heater consumes only 2.5 W of power (5 V - 0.5 A). With a portable USB battery of e.g. 10,000 mA, it can operate continuously for about 14 hours (at 20 °C outdoor temperature). However, the operating time varies greatly depending on the environment and temperature. The soft and non-slip surface of the heating tape allows for easy attachment to the objective, eyepiece or telescope. The heater consists of a 30 mm wide and 600 mm long heating tape and is suitable for diameters up to 100 mm.FEATURESHeating type: carbon fiber textile heatingTemperature: 10 degrees Celsius above ambient outdoor temperature (at 20° C, no wind)Power source, power consumption: USB, 5 V, 0.5 A, 2.5 WPower cable: USB A (male)Connector: USB type C connector detachable coiled cable 20 to 50 cmOperating time: approximately 14 hours with fully charged 10,000 mAh battery (at 20 °C outdoor temperature)Recommended for lenses with a width of 30 mm and an outer diameter of 45 to 100 mmDimensions: 30 x 600 mmTotal weight: 67 gSCOPE OF DELIVERYLens Heater 360 IVUSB spiral cable

The dovetail-shaped mounting rail is 45 mm wide (similar to the Vixen dovetail style) and 280 mm long. The matt black anodized surface has a laser engraved scale on one side with a fine graduation with 2 mm increments. This makes it easier to determine the center of gravity when placing the camera on the mounting head. To protect the clamping surface there is a stainless steel clamping plate on the opposite side. The dovetail plate is equipped with rubber inserts at 3 positions. This allows a secure mounting of the camera equipment and prevents unintentional slipping and twisting. The mounting rail has a screw fastening with 1/4 inch photo thread, which is suitable for almost all commercially available camera systems. The screw attachment can be used in 3 different elongated hole positions to adjust a perfect balance. In addition, an adapter from 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch photo thread is also included, so that ball heads with the larger thread version can also be used directly. The camera mounting rail weighs only 250 grams. Suitable for all EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC and BRESSER mounts and also mounts of other brands that accept the popular Vixen-GP dovetail rail. FEATURES Universal camera mounting rail Dovetail with 45 mm width Length 280mm; weight 250 grams Suitable for EQ mounts with Vixen GP dovetail Camera mounting screw with 1/4 inch photo thread Thread adapter 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch Laser engraved scale with 2 mm fine graduation Stainless steel clamping plate Rubber inserts against slipping and twisting 3 elongated holes for mounting the camera SCOPE OF DELIVERY Camera mounting rail Mounting screw 1/4 inch Thread adapter 3/8 inch

EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Two-Room Pop-UP Observatory Tent / Weather protection for telescopes
The Explore Scientific Two Room Pop-Up Observatory is a useful weatherproof tent that protects your valuable equipment from wind, dew, rain and dust. Most amateur astronomers and astrophotographers dream of having an observatory to keep dust, dew and wind away from their telescope and to shield disturbing stray light from their telescope's optics. But for many astronomers, an observatory is only a dream because of the cost of a roll-roof building or an observatory dome. There is also the problem that an observatory building needs a permanent location that is suitable for an observatory. Portable, quick to set up and inexpensive A good solution is a portable observatory tent. Compared to their fixed counterparts, a tent is extremely inexpensive and can be set up almost anywhere there is a flat surface and a clear view of the sky. However, setting up a portable observatory tent can also be a hassle. No one wants to waste their valuable observing time reading complex instructions while trying to figure out which pole goes where. For this reason, we have used a sturdy pop-up design. Setting up the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Pop-Up Observatory can be done in a matter of minutes. By releasing a retaining strap, the complete tent unfolds from its packaging in just a few seconds. You really don't need to do anything other than connect the two observatory rooms with a Velcro seam and attach it to the ground. Thanks to this simple design, the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Pop-Up Observatory can be set up and taken down in just a few minutes, giving you plenty of time to enjoy your astronomy weekend. Plenty of space for your equipment and super compact when folded up. With just under 5 square metres of total space and 1.52 metre high side walls, coupled with 1.83 metre high windscreens, the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Pop-Up Observatory allows you to set up your computer equipment in one room and the telescope in the other, or set up two complete telescope systems. Each room is 152 by 152 centimetres. Mobile observatory with compact transport dimensions In addition to being easy to set up and take down, another advantage of the pop-up design is that it is travel-friendly, as it is light and easy to stow away. The entire observatory tent folds down to a package 70 centimetres in diameter and 10 centimetres thick. This allows it to be transported in a small car or even on a flight for distant expeditions. And apart from the fact that it allows you to go to your favourite observing site at any time, portable observatory tents are usually the first choice for astronomers and astrophotographers attending star party events.  Advanced materials provide optimal protection and durability However, the fact that the EXPLORE SCIENTIFIC Pop-Up Observatory is lightweight and easy to store and set up doesn't mean it can't withstand bad weather conditions. The Black-Out coated polyamide material is waterproof and offers excellent UV protection. This guarantees reliable protection for your equipment as well as long-lasting durability of the observatory tent. Large doors for convenient use The doors to enter the observatory tent and pass through the attached rooms are very generously sized at 102 centimetres high and 92 centimetres wide, so you can easily walk in and through your equipment. The doors roll down to keep moisture out and their heavy-duty zips will last for years. The extra weather cover protects your gear when not in use. With the large weather cover included, you can protect your gear from the hot sun or a surprise rain shower during the day. Or even from dew at night. The modern, coated and waterproof material keeps all unwanted weather influences away from your equipment. Included are cords and pegs to tie down the tent. The structure also has additional holding straps for the use of heavy-duty straps, which can be purchased at local hardware stores.
