Introducing the new TEMP-estTM TEMPerature Equilibration System for Telescopes from Deep Space Products. The first models of the TEMP-estTMare designed for use on the Celestron Edge HD Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes ("SCTs") and new standard SCTs with built-in side vents. For the complete Category 2 through 4 systems please go to one of the following pages: Edge HD Categories 2-4 , CPC Deluxe HD Categories 2-4.
The TEMP-estTMCategory 1 consists of a fan system that is placed in the Fastar secondary hole for quick initial cool-downs. The filtered fan uses a 55 micron stainless steel filter to keep dust input to a minimum. All of the Fastar fans run on 12VDC with a 2.1mm or 2.5mm center positive plug. The C9.25 version is still in planning.
Each fan assembly is custom machined for the OTAs and made from materials like solid surface acrylic polymer and recycled materials are used when available. The Fastar fan assemblies will be of random colors but can also be made to match the vent fans (depending on material availability).
