Not quite what I expected

Certainly it’s compact and not terribly expensive, but this device really lacks some of the basics which I now understand are important for a dew heater. Things like a thermostatically controlled power supply with thermometer in the heating element. This is a very elementary unit.

Not to mention the completely non-standard power supply that only comes with a cigarette lighter attachment. If you want to plug it into a power tank, you have do surgery on the power cable. Not a huge deal, but not very professional either.

I’m not really impressed.


The Micro-D Controller is designed for Astronomers and Astrophotographers who want the best in lightweight, compact, grab and go gear.

Despite its small size, this controller is not small in its performance or build quality. It is well built and well thought out.

This new version of the Micro-D controller comes with Kendrick's standard RCA connector. It will usable with the entire Premier and FireFly heater lines.

The controller has two slotted tabs that can be used to attach the supplied lanyard so that the controller may be hung from a convenient location. Velcro tabs are also provided if you prefer to "stick" the controller to your telescope or mount. Also, the mounting tabs are convenient for anyone who wants to mechanically mount the controller with screws to a Dobsonian telescope base, Dobsonian upper tube assembly, inside an eyepiece box or wherever else one may wish to mount the controller.

The Micro-D has one heater output and one output at 8 vdc for DSLR cameras, allowing a photographer to prevent dew and power the camera from one box. This feature will require the purchase of one of our DSLR DC Battery couplers and cables.

It comes with Kendrick's standard one year parts and labor warranty.
