    NL Pure condensation on eye pieces

    There are some very interesting thoughts and suggestions being shared, not sure if I will get my drill out just yet though, and I would need to commit to another NL to try it out. An interesting thought though for the future, if anyone has reason to try it out please do share if it makes a...

    NL Pure condensation on eye pieces

    Hi there, I can assure you that I tried every combination of eye relief on both sets I tested. I wanted nothing more than to make these bins work for me, but failed.

They don't have any ideas to offer on why they might...

    NL Pure condensation on eye pieces

    I took delivery of a pair of NL pure 10x42 last weekend. I am thrilled with them in every way bar one concern. I have noticed that they are particularly prone to condensation forming on the eyepieces. This is external and starts forming after about 45 seconds of continuous viewing. I can see...
