Did you try Andrews? They show them for $79 (SWA-shroud-16). But they get them from TASCO the importer, you could ring them at Brookvale and ask directly. If out of stock everywhere then you could try a US Skywatcher retailer. How hard did you look?

I had a nice one on my 16" GSO Strut Dob , but shroud droop is always an issue. You can buy some wall cavity snake plastic at Bunnings, and use that to make some hoops to hold the shroud out of the light path. Connect the end together by a small piece of plastic tubing (also from Bunnings). Hoops attach to the struts with adhesive Velcro.
Pretty sure there was a thread about making them, if you care to learn to use the Search feature here.
