    Question for Astra users
    From: Greg R_
    Date: 2012 May 20, 23:38 -0700

    Occasionally when pulling down a sun shot, I'll get an unfiltered "blast" of
    it through the 'scope while moving the index arm through a lower angle
    towards the actual angle above the horizon (seems to happen more often with
    higher-altitude shots like we get in the summer, maybe because there's more
    arc to travel through to get to the final angle).
    
    Based on the optical path, I'm guessing that it's probably reflecting off
    the top of the index shade assembly but I haven't been able to confirm that
    yet.
    
    Has anyone else noticed this, and if so what's the fix (if any) for it?
    Dulling the shiny black finish on the shade assemblies seems like a drastic
    measure (if that's actually the source of it), though maybe some matte-black
    tape would work?

    Thanks,
