    Default eyeglass wipes vs eyepiece wipes



    Hi all,
    Just wondering if anyone knows the difference between the wipes that come with eyeglasses, and the wipes that Lumicon or Orion sells for $5? They dont need liquid and wont scratch.

    My wife has tons of eyeglass wipes but I dont want to damage any eyepieces, on the other hand, no point in ordering an Orion product when if may have the same thing here.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    They will work just fine-- brush off the lens before you use them-- with a soft brush.

    Al Nagler uses WINDEX! by the way. Any proper camera lens cleaning solution-wipes will work just fine.
