The NexStar 10 and The Kendrick dew remover system

Posted: Tuesday, May 16, 2023

The NexStar 10 boasts features like USB 3.0 SuperSpeed (backward compatible with USB 2.0), a  high-resolution ON Semiconductor CMOS color sensor with super small 1.67 micron pixels in a 3856 2754 pixel array, Celestron iCap image capture software, RegiStax stacking software, and more.

The Kendrick dew remover system is designed to eliminate dew from telescope optics by keeping the optics slightly warmer than ambient, or above the dew point. Power is applied from a dew controller via flexible dew heaters, usually wrapped around the telescope tube, near the cell housing the optics.
