Default Anti fog

It's getting to that time of year what do people use to stop fogging on your scope.

Cheers

Martin

Hey Martin

I havn't needed it for my scope yet but use a product called "Fog Off" in my breathing apparatus face mask.
It's avaliable from diving shops.

May be worth a go ?

being a connect user this can cost you points ! , the best one ive tried which leaves virtually no haze /smear is muc-off motor cycle helmet anti fog , not cheap but a really good product .
one drawback is if you accidentally breath into your scope it seems to go brown rather than white ( and no , its not my dogs breath either )
What also works really well is a talc puffer with no talc , the ambient air almost makes the fogging disappear instantly and you haven't got to touch the lens

I use a product called "cat crap", stupid name but a good product. Its sold for use as anti fog stuff for paintballers masks. It comes in a little red tub and you put it on your lenses like a soft wax which you then buff off. It's costs about 8-9 quid for a tiny tub but I've had four years out of my current pot and probably got another years worth left so it's good value

A good start is to have a clean lens and not touch it with your fingers. Grease, dirt etc are all hydroscopic, they attract water. It's the same reason you see hand wipe marks on cold damp days on your windscreen.

If you use a good optical cleaning solution then you may not need any, although i'm saying this using a long eye relief scope. I've been using the optical wipes from opticians which come in the little tear open sachets. They work well in the field as you can keep them sealed and only use them when needed. The liquid evaporates so you don't need something else.

For rain I use a rocket blower, like vinny is suggesting, to blow the rain drops off. This gets down the scope enhancer and means i don't need to touch it in the field.
