I whether there should be any AR-coating because my newly-bought Galilean scope has a very bright spot/blot moving all over the field of view when I watch the Moon for example. This blot is there definitely because of internal reflexions within the lenses. It is so intensive that I guess it will make a lunar-distance sight more difficult. I asked amateur-astronomers about AR-coating and they confirm the image contrast is better if the coating is there.
