I think he ran out of bandwidth. The links are still there, but now all we see is the dreaded red X.

Sorry guys, apparently people like the looks of it quite a bit as they crashed my site! That hasn't happened in years. Here you go, I put up a copy on my business site:

Jon,

Do you know the final word on the illumination? Is it only going to be the center dot or is it going to additional parts of the reticle?

Only the center dot. There are good reasons either way for people to want the entire thing lit up or only the center, it really depends upon what you plan on using the illumination for. For me personally, about 90% of the time I use illumination I prefer only the center (dot/cross, etc) to be lit up but it doesn’t matter enough to me to be bothered by reticles where more lights up—as long as they can be turned down enough not to wash out the target. But that is often a problem--the more light you have on the reticle the harder it is not to wash out the target in dark conditions.

It's a moot point though, for this design as the manufacturing capabilities were such that illuminating more of the reticle would have required the lines to be thicker, which most people wouldn't like. It's the same reason the March 3-24 I have coming this week (wooohooo!) has thicker lines than some people would like.

One thing that's less than perfect on this with the illumination is that when set too high for the conditions you will see a little bleed onto the other dots. It doesn't affect function though in the slightest, but it may be an aesthetic point against it for some who use the illumination a lot.
