    Maybe not motivational to some, but to those shooting in less than ideal conditions, know that a good scope won’t let you down even if it gets a bit dirty. Now selling as NIB! 🤣🤣

    Ok, serious question.
    This happens. We all know it.
    I have a lens brush with the little air bladder.
    So does one first clear with air or brush this off? I have noted that the puny little puff of air from the brush thingy often doesn’t move a few sticky grains of sand. Higher pressure, like from my shop compressor?
    I’ve also tried a mini vac. Meh.
    How say you?

    Well I won’t pretend to be an expert, but for what it’s worth. In this case I started with a blow off nozzle on my air hose that concentrates some lower pressure air into a stream of air. That removed a good bit of it. Then I used a soft chip brush to gently remove the rest of the particles without scratching the lens.
