How to clean my ED80 lens?

Recommended Posts

Hi Martin i would say if its only dirty cosmeticaly then leave well alone.

As Gordon says if it doesn't effect you visual or imaging i wouldn't bother with it.

On the other hand if it does then be verrrrry careful. follow Rob's suggestion.

Thanks for the advice. Great Cloudy Nights link Gordon which seems to cover everything really. It seems to be that a few marks on the objective lens don't affect performance but that it isn't necessary to be too paranoid over cleaning if you really feel the need. 70% ethanol/30% water and cotton wool seems to be the most popular choice. The marks are tiny so I'm going to leave it.

Unless it's really bad, I leave alone..."If it aint broke don't fix it"

I decided to clean my eyepieces one night.....Ended up putting a chip in the edge of my 10mm Plossl... :D

Oooh I get it :D :D

Years ago, it wasn't unusual for a (Chinese) camera lens to have air bubbles!!

Gaz OPTI CLEAN FROM David hinds i am about to clean my refractor lens have used it before it forms a skin then just peel it of clean as clean can be.

Used that myself - fiddly but very good for dry marks.
