    Default Handlng of optics?

    I have search for topics regarding the handling of optics such as cubes and anamorphic prisms with little success.

    I am currently using cotton gloves when handling and positioning optics. What other tips can you offer in order to maintain blemish and mark free results?

    If they need a lot of handling to get them in place initially then I put a coat of 1st contact on each face until I'm ready to shoot light through them.

    Then I'm generally a bit careful, but always clean again afterwards anyway
