Exclamation Moisture *on* Lens

I took my new laser outside today, and it looks like some snow got into the lens. (I live in VT) There's a kind of fuzziness, and lines around the beam. I would take a picture of it, but my camera is of on vacation. (Missing)

I think that there's some water on the lens (not in back of the lens). Does anyone know how to get this off? Or will it just evaporate?

If it helps:

It's a Galileo, by LaserGlow.
It's 5mW
It's green (532 nm)

Thanks!

It should just evaporate if it's water. If you have to, remove the batteries and see what some isopropyl alcohol does for it (the higher the alcohol content the better).

Isopropyl is good, but methanol alcohol is the best if you can get some. You can let it air dry, and see if any water spots are left on the lens. Hope this helps some.
