Thread: Scope Fogging

  1. #1

    Scope Fogging

    Hi EV1. I am after some advice/tips. I was out last night in the rain and the scope lense was nearly always fogged up and couldnt take the shot because of it. Now the scope I was using did not have covers on and realise that would help but has anyone used any anti-fogging products that really work??

    I always carry a scope cloth in my pocket because even the best of optics fog up in extreme conditions

    +1, but keep it in a little plastic bag or tub, you don't want it getting bits of grit and dirt stuck in it before you wipe those precious lenses!!!

    I bought a tub of several hundred lense cloths off eBay for just a few quid, I just discard them after every use.

    Use Lidi spec cleaning wipes. If you havent got covers then a piece of cling film over the front objective secured with a rubber band works well. Helps to have sun shades.

    i take it that the outside of the scope was fogging not the inside?

    If outside?? I have a similar problem with my night vision scope in certain conditions and always carry one of these.

    Innovative products from Alpine Innovations


    Self contained and stops cr@p getting on the cloth/lens.

    works like a dream in rain and in the cold

    One bottle lasted me 3 years and does not damage coatings
