You can try to clear this your self. You will need a good sized clear plastic bag, say kitchen trash can size. You will need to get your hands on some nitrogen gas or you can also use carbon dioxide gas. You will need some good electrical contact grease or Vaseline will also work. Take the focus lens off of your scope, (This means unscrew it from the scope body) let it dry out a day or so. Now ck for any o-rings on the scope body some will have a small o-ring - like a good flash light the good metal kind, and try to find new if it has one if you can, put the grease on the screw threads. Put all the scope parts in the bag and pump up the bag with your nitrogen and tie off the bag but leave room so you can screw the lens back on once it has set for a little bit in the gas. This should let gas stay inside the scope so no moisture can get back inside to fog it up. Try that, sounds crazy but it will work.

Why do need a waterproof spotting scope?


Many activities that include the use of scopes such as binoculars, spotting scopes and riflescopes take place outdoors, often in damp, humid or foggy conditions. Having waterproof binoculars, spotting scopes or rifle scopes will eliminate your concerns about moisture damage, including fogged over inner optics that are sure to ruin your day out! Some waterproof binoculars can even withstand short submersion's in shallow water so even accidentally dropping them in a puddle on a hike won't matter.

Feature Analysis
  • Porro Prism Lens
    Though many optics producers keep on trying to transform roof prism lens, Porro prism lenses are more affordable and light-efficient. These Porro prism lenses can display images with better contrast than roof prism variations. This is how Bushnell Spotting Scope is more reliable and affordable for its high-quality performance.
  • 20-60×65 Zoom Magnification
    The wide range of magnification allows user flexibility for long-range view finding. You can observe details with 65x zoom for long range objects. But, you can still enjoy an increased field of view with 20x zoom. This is used when separating the areas for closer zoom viewing later on.
  • 65x Lens Light-Gathering Capability
    This advanced magnification lenses can light gather at long distances. The Bushnell Trophy 20-60x 65mm Waterproof Spotting Scope resolves this issue by designing 65x zoom lens in a way that brings 17% more light than most high-zoom lenses.
    If you fully read Bushnell Trophy Xtreme Spotting Scope Review, it will support you how to setting zoom for longer distances images.
  • Waterproof Construction
    When you go out in nature, this waterproof construction anticipates you about rain or even snow. It is pretty obvious that any liquid that leaks into your scope will detract from the overall image. But many people do not consider the effects of concentration on the inside of the lens.
    This spotting scope is actually water and fog proof not only for outside moisture but also prevents lens fogging from risky temperatures.
  • Fully Multi-Coated Optics
    The multi-coated lenses prevent any reflections in the glass that can delay your view. The sunlight at certain angles can cause reflections from water or wet surfaces that prevent the clear view of the images. That is why; Bushnell uses multi-coated lenses to remove any kind of reflection.
  • Well-designed Equipment
    The tripod often needs to hide from animals, and the scope cases also need to protect their insides from both jostling and the outside elements. The Bushnell Trophy XLT comes with both a hard-side case and a soft side case. The hard side case protects you from outside damage and a soft-side case protect you from a bumpy road when you are riding.

The two front lenses are fogged up. What can I


It gets condensation from going cold to hot, you can't take them apart without disturbing the seal. The only thing you can do is put it on the radiator and let it warm up, slowly, evenly, not too hot, for about a week. My gps on my bike fogged up and it is in the sun all day, but still won't dry out, so, you are taking a chance. It might not do anything. Hope this helps.

the scope is fogging up because there is a moisture problem. The lenses have to be removed so that everything thoroughly drys out and then the o rings have to be lubricated so that they are total barriers to outside humidity.

Whitch way do my lenses go?


If you completely disassembled the scope then it is compromised they have a special gas mixture inside for fogging and clarity so if they were removed you are likely better off with a new one out of reference what kind of scope is it

Fog light bulb replacement


This bulb can be replaced without removing the washer fluid reservoir. There are 3 screws that go through the bottom edge of the bumper cover into the right inner fender guard. Remove these screws and pull the inner fender down to gain access to the back side of the fog lamp and remove the bulb.

Lens Fogging Issue


Apparently this is NOT a waterproof rifle scope. I would return it as you will have this same problem only worse out in the field. Buy a waterproof nitrogen filled rifle scope.
