I have one fixed to the inside of lens cap which keeps inside the hood dry. Then I use a desiccant cap in the focuser end. The dehumidifier lasts about 3-4 weeks between charges and has a ten year life span.

Here's a link to one similar to mine.
Thanks for that, might look into buying one, they're not too expensive either.

Will certainly give the guy a call once he's back from leave. Pity he's based in Sydney, not many options of places that do that type of thing here in Melbourne. Thanks for the recommendation.
