I would think soapy water on a lense would leave a residue on it. Mirrors are a different matter though.
Hi Mal,
I use the warm soapy water on my 10" dob, and it works fine on the 8" SCT, i haven't had any problems, i rinse with distilled water which is a must. I stopped using Isocol about 4 years ago before i bought my 8" SCT, i never used it on my 10" dob, i used to use it on my 60mm refractor though....
I'll just keep using soapy water.
