Hey Guys,

OK so I went and bought a not top of the line scope, when your on SSDI you just cannot get what you really want, so please do not bust my chops over a low end scope.

So far it is working well, with one exception.

One of my favorite hunting sites faces due east and when the sun is coming up I have a great deal of difficulty finding the target (animal), because of what I am going to call reflection or shine.

I do a lot of SRL camera work and there are lens filters available to help reduce or eliminate this condition, is there anyone who sells accessory filters for rifle scopes?

Not specific polarizing filters, or at least none for a non-specific brand & size of scope that I know of.

There is this, but I don't know how much good they would do:

Have you considered a rolled-up cardboard tube sun shade you could slip over the scope when needed?

Kind of like this rubber tube:

Kill Flash - basically a lens cover with holes in it - might help you. It will also help prevent game animals spotting you when the sun is hitting your objective lens.
