RE: filmscanners: Anti-Newton Rings powder

No, that is not what was said.  You can buy some anti-Newtonian glass and
replace your existing glass; or you can use the powder along with your
existing glass.  You cannot make anti-Newtonian glass from plain glass by
sprinkling some fairy dust on it in the form of Anti-Newtonian powder; if
you do use the powder, it will not change the glass which will remain with
or without the powder plain glass.  :-)
