Watch for Condensation
In reply to jdongg, Jan 31, 2013

If the dewpoint is high, or it's really cold out, condensation can and WILL occur on the lens.

I'm a newb at this too, and do not have a good solution.  I've heard of pocket air-blowers, but that could get to be a tiring exercise.

I've wiped the lens with a cloth between shots, but there goes the stack...  and it doesn't work well if it's ice crystals.

Condescension, I can deal with.  Just not condensation.
