Does anyone use an anti fog spray on thier scope?
If so could they reccomend which one please.
I have the same problem my recommendation is to clean several times the scope completely removing any trace of grease, that s what retain the moist, having a scope enhancer helps keep it clean.
P.S. Clean it very well once or twice a year not every month.
I tried various tips when i used a big nikko, best thing i ever used was lenspen fogklear cloths they were mega. You got two cloths in a packet which were double bagged. They had some form of vapour impregnated in them and a quick rub over clean lenses used to give about a month of protection. If i breathed acidentely down the eye piece it would clear in under 10 seconds. Even getting a warm gun out of the car into cold humid temperatures the lenses would clear in a very short time. Hope that helps. I bought them from a camera shop in York, can't remember which one though.
Cut a potato, moisten a tissue with the cut face, and wipe it over the lenses.
How many Yorks are there?
The water is attracted to grease. The best way i've found is to keep the lenses really clean. Get some lens cleaning fluid and lint free tissues from a camera shop, use each one once, only to apply, then another to remove. And then don't touch the lens again unless you absolutely really have to, and then do it at home.
I think during all the 2-3 years i've had the march i've cleaned the lens once in the field, and even then that was with a fresh tissue. Grubby mitts are like a magnet for grease, and a little bit of grit rubbed in will scar your glass forever, and on the eyepiece, it's most visible.
I've got a lens blower i keep in the bag in case rain or dust gets on the lens. Grit needs to be blown off or brushed with a super soft brush or wetted off with liquid cleaner. Lens pens are a good way of rubbing grit in.
Probably the worlds worst invention, or indeed the best if you want to ruin an occular lens!
Don't breath on your lens
Will oven chips work as well ? It's frozen spud not fresh ?
My question is does it work with turnips?
Dave my little dash of Stratos !
Maybe the turnip plight could rise from the ashes ?
Turnip juice stops your end fogging up ?
Root veg are back.
TRY SHAVING CREAM IT WORKS ON THE BATH ROOM MIRROR
Thank you for your interesting and varied remedies to the problem gentlemen.
And can I have a pint of what you had at lunchtime Rich?
Sober as a judge.
Anyone who used to ride a motorbike years ago, wearing mark 9 goggles instead of the visors that you have today, will know that a smear of potato liquid on the inside of the lenses kept them from steaming up.
I never tried it with turnips; we weren't exactly posh but we were able to afford potatoes and didn't have to survive on animal food. o
Got some from the states, works pretty well. I would suggest NOT the contents of a litter tray though
and it is
I've just rubbed a sprout on bathroom mirror & run the hot tap, mirror steamed up.
Contains salt, so not a good idea
