Another ZEISS SF glass...
Couldn't resist. Sorry.

Right after I bought my Traveler (used), I decided to clean it. It was truly filthy, so I felt justified. This was the result... Spotless!
It's an older model, from '94 I believe, but still performs about as well as a 4" telescope can.

My smallest glass with no aluminizing 😏 . Sensibly perfect images when looking visually or photographically. My large dobs are great but this lens makes me smile every time it look through it!

Tyson, do you have any before and after cleaning pix of the Tak 120?

No, it appeared to have very slight water Mark's or dew spots. Not big or anything. Blew it off lots with a bulb blower. Used soap and then distilled water very carefully with qtips, as to not let water get in between the lens via capillary action. Then gently polished with microfiber. I am fairly methodical and took my time.
