Re: Fogging scope

If your talking about the surface of the lens you can buy anti-fog compound at places like Wal-Mart.

If your talking about the inside the optic they have to go back to the manufacturer.

BTW I was told Pledge worked. I have not tried it.

Take a ride to Bass Pro and pick up a pack or two of Nikon Fog Eliminators, three in a package, eight bucks.

Re: Fogging scope

Better and cheaper option is to grab some of the lens wipes that most manufacturing plants use. They have an anti-fog solution. Probably a lot cheaper than anything available at a sporting goods store, 100 wipes for less than $10. I usually grab a few from the dispenser before opening day and wipe down all my scopes and binos.

Wipes

Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.

Re: Fogging scope

Most of my rifle scopes wear the butler creek flip up covers. If its nice out, no big deal, flip em up and leave em up and hunt all day. But on cold rainy days when scopes may fog, I leave them closed and pop them open only when I need to shoot. Keeps the water off the glass and ensures condensation doesn't form.

Re: Fogging scope

Thanks for the info , fellas . I found an article about using a drop of Pert Plus shampoo on a lense . I put a drop on my reading glasses just the one and left the other side without . Placed the pair of glasses over a steaming cup of water and voila - steamed up instantly on the untreated side and the treated side remained clear ! It is supposed to last a few weeks . Rub the solution over the lenses , wait until they are completely dry then buff out with a soft cloth .

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !
