Do (or can) these sliding dew shields leave marks or scratches on the optical tube?

No, because they are felt lined. They have been supplied on the FSQ-106 for almost four years and I have not had anyone tell me that their tube was marred in any way by the felt liner. The Sky-90's have had them for three years and the TOA-130's have them now.

All future new refractors will have them as standard equipment.

They are very convenient and easy to use and they are very well made.
