Thread: Scope Sun Shades

    Scope Sun Shades

    I had a situation this week where I could not get a bead on a doe as I had flare out in my scope due to the sun being low. Does anyone know of a simple, cheap universal scope shade that I can fit onto my nikon titanium scope. It needs to be able to be removed easily and light, as I don't want it fitted ll the time and would not want any more weight to carry whilst stalking.

    you could try one of these, they are lightwieght rubber shades that stretch over your objective lense fit in seconds http://www.opticswarehouse.co.uk/products.asp?cat=247 top of the page just pick the size closest to your scope. ive got one for my S&B 8x56

    Simple, piece of stiff cardboard rolled up on scope and attach with plastic tape.

    Otherwise buy some. 4" are best

    Many thanks guys. I think I will try the Hawke option first and then move on from there if it does not work.

    The honeycomb filter reduces light entering the scope and is designed to stop reflections, ,,,in a counter sniper kind of way...


    Better off with extension tubes to stop flare, imho.

    The product literature for your scope should tell you what the objective filter thread size is. For my 50mm scopes it is a 52mm/0.75 pitch thread
