(IAAC) REPOST Re: To dew or not to dew...

[NOTE: Please ignore my previous post with this Subject...]

One warning though, to go with Cathy's well-deserved recommendation.

For EXTREMELY DEWY situations (as too frequently occur in New England), the
Kendrick system seems to have a point of frequent failure. I learned this
the hard way on a recent deep-sky trip in New Hampshire: during the course
of ONE dewy/foggy night, THREE separate Kendrick controllers failed!

The problem with the controller was not clear. However, at least one person
did some "field engineering" to the product, and replaced a single component
(the only chip on the board) which apparently fixed their controller.

PS: Anyone else ever have this experience with the Kendrick System?

Caveat observor,
