What would I get for my scope to keep the condensation off my scope at night. It seems to get a film on the end of it.:help:

Condenation is unavoidable. The thing is while observing to attempt to slow it or stop it from forming on the optics. While the rest of the scope can be soaked, if the optics are dry you can keep observing (or imaging as the case may be). Frost can form on the scope too, but again, if the optics are dry, you can keep doing your thing.
If dew has condensed on the scope, you'll need to allow it to dry off before you pack it away. You may like to towel it down, no problem there, just be careful of the optics.
If you're after some tips on how to control condensation on optics, let us know what type of scope you've got, and we'll point you in the best direction.
