storing huge telescopes like C14 etc

Post by shirox »

Recently this question has been lingering on my mind.
For Obsessions like a 14" SCT or maybe smaller like a 10" dob, storing them in the drybox like the digicabi is really not possible.
So other than storing in an Air-con environment to keep the humidity down,
is there a way you guys store it to prevent fungus growth?

It is how many people, less fortunate than you, got to look through it."
