Would one of those help?

I have the DLX426, which is, granted, not very stong, you pretty much
need to have it where the soldering happens, maybe 10cm away. But what
it does is nice for the money.
Or if it's not about capturing the fumes, just keeping them off the
lense - put some larger diameter CPU fan in some wood frame/stand to one
side of the scope to just blow the fumes away?
