Telescope Care and Maintenance


If cared for properly, telescopes can last decades! When not in use, it's important to plus in the dust caps/ lens caps on the OTA (both ends), put the eyepieces back in their cases/ covers, and ensure you store the telescope at room temperature and in a dry place. When you bring a telescope back inside after using it during the night, before putting your telescope away, allow it to come to ambient temperature so there is no moisture formation on the lenses due to temperature difference.
