Re: Lens coatings

I don't think the lens is coated, but I could be wrong. It doesn't look coated

I'm pretty sure it's not coated.

Are there any DIY ways to make a lousy lens coating? Or is it all vacuum chambers and thin film deposition? I would expect to get the performance of a modern multicoated lens, obviously, but even a little bit would be fun.

I'd read somewhere about some early coating which were just a layer of some kind of oil, but I can't find a reference anywhere. The ones I'm finding now are beyond the means of a household lab.

That's consistent with my understanding of lens coatings.
