Re: Adjusting for clarity
i have noticed this to a small extent on both my (no parallax adjustment on the scopes) zeiss duralyt and leupold vx3 scopes. within the clear focus of the reticle, which is maybe a 1/4 turn or less, there is a slight bluring of the target image downrange from the beginning to end of that 1/4 turn.
For my eyes which are older and require reading glasses, the down range image was clearest with a blurred reticle.
i was wondering if a better scope optically, like a zeiss victory doavari, would be the same of different. never got up the $ to find out.
Im also thinking that if my vision was as good as it was 20 years ago then the results may be different.
I had pulled a scoped rifle out of the safe recently after 20 years had passed since setting it up. immediately saw that the reticle was horribly out of focus. it took a turn or 2 of the eyepiece to clear it up. im guessing a change in vision as time passes was the cause. back then i didnt need reading glasses, now i do.
