Re: A parallax question for veteran shooters
But Bart, if I adjust that focus just right, and I move my eye around the reticule does not move on the target. But if I focus as some other plane, and I move my eye around, I see the cross hairs move on the target.
Like you, I pull my eye back until the image is slightly smaller than the eye piece, and I center the image in the eyepiece.
But if a person did not do that, and just looked and shot, the focus could be considered a way of reducing parallax caused inaccuracy.
So yes it is focus, but it can have an effect on the effect parallax has on accuracy.
Calling the focus "parallax adjustment" is a lot less silly than many common things.
