    I'm thinking somehow moisture got inside the scope. At this point there are about 5 bubbles. I take another shot and they all multiply. I look the scope over, everything seems to be fine. I take the scope off my rifle and shake it a bit to see if I can get the water droplets to move. None of them do.. It looks as if 2 pieces of glass that were glued together are starting to separate and there are little air bubbles in the separation.

    Has anyone ever seen this? I am going to try and upload some pics.
    Can you hit what you're aiming at? If so, use what you've got and send your bubbly scope back to Vortex after you kill your deer.

    Not like a whitetail will be a long ways out (at least around here). For years I used Iron sights (and still do I might add).

    I've had times where a baseball bat would be better than a rifle......

    I just went to optics to improve my old tired eyes. I'm over 60 and my eyes have seen alot, both good and bad.

    At least using it, you'll see if it gets worse... or better...

    Either way, if it was me, I'd send it back in the end.....

    2 weeks is plenty of time I had a idiot sit on my spotting scope and break the eye piece off. Called vortex on a Monday told them deer season started Saturday. Sent it Monday had a new one back on Thursday they made sure I had it back in time. Only problem I have had with the 6 pieces I own and I am hard on ****
