Sbig ST8300 Dew Fix

Sbig have a fix for dew problems on the st-8300 chamber window. Looks like a heater pad that sticks to the chamber mounting block and solders to the PCB. http://www.sbig.com/pdffiles/8300Heater.pdf I believe it's free.

Thanks fir that - been wondering whether this would be fixed. I've had a few experiences of dew with mine in Sydney in Autumn.

The instructions eludes to the possibility that ST-8300 users can install the heater unit themselves. What does this do to the warranty..void it if you get it wrong. Does Peter Ward have to install it on behalf of SBIG..if so it's not exactly free. The hardest part seems to be the soldering and anyone that has performed the task knows it can be a pain if you don't do it correctly.
