Description

This is a result of the first light for the SVS 130. Unfortunately, the dew shield slid down starting on the 3rd of 20 subs, resulting in the dew heater strap being well below the front optics so the remaining subs got progressively worse. After messing with it for a few days, this is about the best I can get.
