What are people's opinion on putting anti fog solutions on scopes?
Aren't most scopes lenses coated to help with light transmission, not sure I'd want to put anything on 1K worth of kit that a hanky could remove without damage it forever.
Better than a hanky http://www.amazon.co.uk/spudz-cleaning-cloth/s?ie=UTF8&page=1&rh=i:aps,k:spudz cleaning cloth clips onto the pellet pouch
A tiny drop of fairy liquid smeared on with your finger and buffed off will stop lens steaming up, or you could buy an anti fogging product like Fog off but they don't do it any better than Fairy. the coatings on lens cannot be washed off with these products.
I have raced motorcycles in the winter before and Fairy or fog off on the inside of your visor or goggles lens was essential to prevent fogging, it works really well.
"Fog Off" teehee brilliant product name
connect zero eye relief
As above , title,
That scopes a real pita for fogging up , I bought some muc off premium fog treatment @ £10 a tiny bottle ,it works really well untill you inadvertantly breathe on the lens , then your doomed !, rather than a bit of fogging, its totally knackered , its a bit of a race against time for pulling the
trigger , not good , just make sure your all done before getting down to the shot, one of the talc puffers , obviously without talc is marvelous for clearing instantaneously
Doc Leaves ! Rub doc leaves on it...only dry one's though !
Grease is hygroscopic. It attracts water. If you keep lenses clean with lens cleaning solution they fog up a lot less.
I'd be tempted not to use fairy as it can contain additives which can interfere with the lens coatings.
There is an anti fogging cream called CAT CR4P .
I tried it and would not use it again on my scope, it was no good .
Thanks everyone will try a few ideas out and see how I get on :shot:
I've got some of this on the way, will report back on the results when I have tested it.
They were all rubbing that on their scopes at castle on Saturday
Are you sure
Was it Cat Cr4p or Phil Green scat ?
It seemed to alter my ranges , it may have been a novice excuse.
Well received the FOG TECH and applied it last night.....nice damp day in the North East today and can't get the scope to fog up no matter what I do. Think it has affected the clarity slightly but still able to range find 55 yds accurately.
Thumbs up for me on these damp November Days.
I would never rub some random jollop on my scope lenses. I think there's only been one occasion (a winter league at Guiseley a few years ago) where fogging was a problem, and it didn't pose that much of one really; I was still able to range and shoot. I think I took off the scope enhancer briefly.
YOU WERE CHASING THAT CAT AROUND THE GARDEN ALL AFTERNOON FOR IT I HEARD.
So you didn't go for the pu$$ ¥ juice then.
Couldn't find any, thought I better try something else.:lev
