Scratched lens?

I have a Leupold 6-18X target scope. On the end you look through, the glass is coated with blue coating. Toward the outer edge of the glass, there's a scratch that's through the blue but not into the glass. The "scratch" is about the size of an eyelash.

Looking through it, I can't tell it's there.

Big deal or no?

thanx

I'll say no especially not at the lenses edge. But in the future I would be much more cautious in caring for and protecting the lenses

you might pick up a lens pen & see if you could polish it out. the sponge end has a very fine compound on it & may just do the trick.

Talk to Leupold, 1-800-LEUPOLD, before attempting to polish that scratch out.
