    I know some scopes are better at reducing parallax than others, but are there specific scopes that reduce it significantly by making sure you can only see an image when your looking right down the centre of it??

    If there is not, this could be a great idea for a manufacturer?

    A scope with a built in cheek piece that positions your head in the same place every time?

    Are you speaking about parallax error ???.

    Generally smaller objective lens scopes give you less parallax error also depends on magnification levels etc. Or exit pupil.

    For example 24mm objective lens with 10 mag will give you a exit pupil value of 2.4 mm.

    42 objective lens 10 mag exit pupil value 4.2 mm etc.
    Also smaller objective lens tend to force you to look through the centre of the scope to get a clear picture.
    Which helps with parallax error etc.
    But scopes are a personal thing and everyone's eyes are different and know your kit all helps.

    Adjustable cheek pieces pigs ears the bisley eye piece all help if used correctly to help with head position and looking through the scope correctly to reduce parallax error.

    No scope is totally parallax error free that includes the Mtc connect.
