Re: What are you using to dry your bino / scope lenses in the field?

Years ago whilst still in the UK where it (fortunately!) is posible to see rain every so often, I used camera filters screwed onto the front scope lens. Went to Jessops and bought three. Would change them over if they got bad and clean them gently at home. This does nt work with all scope I know - but.....

All,

Thanks for your responses, some very neat 'prevention' ideas there; but wet lenses seem to be almost an inevitability in Scotland (-you always seem to have to glass upwind into drizzle!) ...it's a bit like 'waterproof' boots -it's not a question of 'if' your feet will get wet, it's a question of 'when'!

I was more after in-the-field 'cure' ideas ....as ds pointed out, I'm always a little worried about scratching lens coatings when wiping with a handkerchief or similar (I don't use paper tissues due to their recognised 'scratchiness') ...looks like I'll have to stay low tech!
