The AstroTarp


"Your scope’s first line of defense against the elements."


How many times have you been outside, enjoying the night sky and time just seems to slip away. You realize it’s very late, (or very early if you’re like myself,) and suddenly, you‘re very tired?

You really don’t feel like packing everything up, stowing everything away, lugging it all back in the house or storage shed, tripping over the threshold, bumping your “pride and joy,” against the doorframe. You would really much rather like to just go in and go to bed.

Well now you can, with AstroTarp.

Made with durable moisture resistant and UV resistant materials, it gives you the advantage over the elements, keeping your scope safe, dry and protected from the sun, allowing you to further enjoy your observing or imaging sessions.

Wether you are at home in your backyard, or out in the field at a dark sky location. Setting your equipment up early in bright sunlight to prepare for a night’s session, or getting ready to catch that once in a lifetime solar eclipse…

Your scope needs protection against little ole’ “Mother Nature.”
