Baader planetarium SILICA - GEL

SILICA - GEL
Silica gel - drying agent 125ml with pollution free color indicator

Most damage to stored Optics equipment is caused by humidity trapped within the enclosed storage area itself. Humidity trapped within enclosed space turns into almost imperceptible condensation which causes irreparable damage. Silica gel prevents these moisture related problems before they begin. Silica gel creates a protective shield of dry air within any enclosed storage area.

The Silica Gel crystals have a built-in indicator which turns from pink to clear signalling when the product is saturated with moisture and needs reactivation. Once saturated with moisture, silica gel can be easily reactivated in a conventional oven for lifetime protection.

Astronomers observing chair

Astronomers observing chair

Every astronomer should have one of these! The deluxe new observing chair from Sky-Watcher is a lightweight, rock solid platform featuring a height-adjustable padded seat. To change the seating position you just lift the seat and raise it or lower it. No tools are needed, and adjustments are done in a matter of seconds. The observing chair replaces awkward stances and squats with simple comfort. It is a pleasure to use whether you observe with refractors, reflectors or catadioptric telescopes.
Perhaps the nicest feature is the no-tip foot design. Unlike other (and substantially more expensive models) on the market, the Sky-Watcher observing chair has been designed to retain its balance and stability at all seating heights. This is a great improvement over other models that have a tendency to tip easily. Light weight and foldable for easy transportation. The chair now incorporates a simple spring mechanism which prevents the seat from dropping when lifted.

Extended Dimensions: 95cm(H) x 46cm(W) x 65cm(D)
Folded Dimensions: 108cm(H) x 46cm(W) x 15cm(D)
Adjustable Seat heights: 30-82 cm(H)
