    Astra Question - Unfiltered Sun Reflections
    From: Greg R_
    Date: 2007 Jan 28, 11:34 -0800
    Coralline's questions about the Astra reminded me of something that I've been meaning to ask. Sometimes when I'm bringing down the sun for a sight, I'll get a nasty blast of unfiltered sun in my eye. It seems to be coming off the bottom of the index shades, but it's not consistent so I guess it depends on the angle of the sun when I'm moving the index arm.
     
    Anyone else have the same problem, and if so what solution have you come up with for it? I've thought about maybe using dulling spray on the shades (or maybe even re-painting the metal parts with non-reflective black), but I'll wait until I get some feedback from the group before doing anything drastic like that.
