    Just to clarify, that should probably read "on the metal parts surrounding the shades". Wouldn't make any sense to fog up the filters themselves with dulling spray.

    Subject: [NavList 2139] Astra Question - Unfiltered Sun Reflections

    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.
