    I have only tried it once so far but worked perfectly. It removed a few water spots on the lens with no problem and seemed to do it faster then other products I have tried.

    I am sure that the manufacturer has heard this complaint often about the spray function. While this is great for cleaning large surfaces I can not afford to clean windows, tv's etc with this product.

    I suggest either offering a dropper type version as well or including one of those 'one drop at a time' tops in the package as an optional way to dispense the product.

    Also, I am not sure if the quantity is over the USA carry on liquids limit for air travel.

    Purosol vs 100% Distilled Water

    Distilled water, (can be a 25 step process), doesn't smell, doesn't streak, is not pricey, is "all natural", and cleans as well (or as poorly) as Purosol when trying to emulsify (break down) oil (called Seban) that migrates to your lenses from your skin. Oils, from Seban, skin moisturizers, UV creams, mosquito repellants, salad dressing (believe it) account for the majority of oils needing to be removed from eye glass or camera lenses. 100% Distilled water vs. Purosol in our tests were equivalent, showing no discernable oil emulsifying properties.

    Simply because NASA uses or used it, do we know for what purpose? When asked... one of the top company spokes persons said "it is classified" and "can't be revealed". So, I guess if we want to remove something "classified" or repel space dust from our lenses, perhaps. But, in our testing protocols, Zeiss, ROR, Nikon, Canon and Kodak Lens Cleaners, or a dab of Dawn Liquid Dish Washing Liquid and water, work far better for emulsifying oils and more quickly to produce a clean, streak-free lens.

    Deep Cleans Optics

    Comments about Purosol Optical Cleaner - 4 oz:

    I use it to clean high-end telescope, binocular, and camera optics. It works as advertised, and sometimes even better. To remove any streaking and to get that "deep clean" look, use a little warm breath to fog the optics and give the lens a gentle wipe with a Purosol Microfiber Cloth. Very good product overall!

    Clear as a bell without ringing it

    By T.Saar

    from York, PA 17402

    Comments about Purosol Optical Cleaner - 4 oz:

    After searching for an environmentally safe cleaning product for my camera lenses ( a quality one), I came across this Purisol Optical Cleaner. It does an outstanding job of getting rid of dirt and and grime on camera lenses with minimal effort. There is no appreciable smell or fumes, no residue and what you are left with when used with tissue paper to apply/clean and a microfiber cloth to polish/ shine is a crystal clear, sparkling lens. This, coupled with the knowledge that I am not putting harmful chemicals out into the environment makes me a vey happy person and photographer ( amateur one, at best)!

            Pricey, which is the only reason I gave it 4 rather than 5 stars. Actually, 4 oz is quite a lot, given how it is used, which is sparingly. Use is for lenses and filters. I suggest buying a small container for your camera bag and getting the larger container to save cost.

                  Easy to use spray bottle. While easy it may spray more than a dropper type dispenser and waste some product. Even given that 40z will last a long, long time.

                    I use this on my most valued optics including an Astro-Physics refractor that I had to wait 9 years for! Very effective in removing pollen and other nasties found here in the Southern end of the USA. Best results by placing it on a disposal lint free tissue in lieu of direct spray application.

                      I use this on Takahashi telescope, Celestron telescope, Newtonian mirrors, Astro-Physics diagonal, OMI mirror, Pentax and Zeiss Abbee Orthoscopic eyepieces. It is recommended by Astro-Physics on their high end refractors. A bit pricey but a bottle lasts a couple of years. Does not absorb moisture out of the air which can lead to streaking in humid environments (with alcohol or acetone). Does not dissolve paint or plastic. I find it much better than the standard mix of soapy water and alcohol. I use it with kimwipes and a Giotto air blower.

                          I've been cleaning camera lenses for 40 years, and this is the best liquid I've come across. In one week I cleaned my Canon 600mm IS, my laptop screen, my desktop screen, a dirty DVD, and my flat panel TV, all with excellent results. The liquid comes out in a very fine, even, controllable mist that seems to pick up all oily residue in one pass. I'm very pleased with it and will continue to use it.
