    Re: Fogging Optics

    Well, when I go scuba diving, we always spit on the inside of the mask…

     

    Seriously, there are a number of compounds out there that they sell for the insides of ski goggles & such. NASA uses a dilute solution of no-tears baby shampoo for the insides of the space suit helmet ever since one of the astronauts got temporarily blinded by a drop of the old anti-fog compound they were using. Personally, if it were my Cassens & Plath, I would just use a drop of diluted shampoo. Can always clean it off if it doesn’t work.
