    I clean my lenses with lense alcohol and disposable lense wipes, after I use air and a specific lenses brush. All this is done at home every 4th or 5th hunt thereabouts. All this is camera cleaning kit
    In the field I will not touch them as this is when you make fuck ups, or at least this is what I have learnt over the years
    Works for me.

    Have never tried it on a scope but we have always used Baby Shampoo wiped on the inside of Dive goggles to help with fogging.

    Never ever use rainex on your lenses.
    There is member on here that can vouch for that!

    What effect did it have.

    (I had a bad experience using the Rainex meant for OUTSIDE the windscreen on the inside of the screen in my ute - the area I treated was the first to fog up!)

    I can vouch about RainX. Just increases the fogging. Rain drops run off nicely, but condensation seems to be increased and it causes micro beads to form. Don't do it!


    A thin wipe of baby shampoo (the no more tears stuff) as used in divemasks could actually work. I've never tried it on a scope or lens, but a very light smear should break the surface tension of the droplets.

    Compare all your scopes in the same conditions, some like Kahles are still usable in the rain and dont suffer any optical distortion, others are a right-off. A big rubberband from a 825x16 or 900x18 tire tube is the go cut 75mm wide. In real bad mist just carry the gun in a gun bag

    This is often over looked.

    If it's really bad a strip of cling film over the end held on with a rubber band. Keep the moisture off it, out of the end of the tube... If you are really fancy some of that optically clear moisture resistant 3M window film works well. It's not damage proof though, but I've seen the idea used with the flip up butler creek type caps and that seems to be quite a good solution.
