    Way up there.
    I bought some lens tissues for cleaning. The only brand they have is matin. Is this a good brand? Will it scratch my lenses? I have used them about 3 times now. Are my lenses ok?

    I originally read the thread title as "are Martian lens tissues safe?", which would give an entirely new meaning to the word "astrophotography"...

    I don't have their tissues. But I have other stuff from them. They are a cheap Chinese company that makes cheap (price and quality) stuff. So, I'm not sure I would be rubbing something they made all over my bare lens. Just my $.02.

    Even cheap lens tissues should be ok. Its all about technique. Leave a grit of sand on the lens and even the most expensive tissue won't help if you dry rub it across the glass.
