I am anxious to try a moon shot with my 300mm f2.8 IS Canon 2x and 1.4x stacked - waiting for a clear night...

That magical glass works very well with Vaseline too!

Do I have to use Vaseline brand or will any petroleum jelly work?

To clean it off is gasoline OK or is kerosene better?

The Vaseline coats are almost a permanent fixture on my 400 2.8 IS..... no first hand experience on good cleaners, nor on other brands of petroleum jelly.
