    On a big nikko when I'm range finding I notice it clearer on the outer edge of the scope rather than where the reticle is, or is it just me. Does anyone else find this or is it just me.

    Are you on max. magnification? On 10x I also get an fish eye effect.
    What is your minimum distance? Has it been reparallaxed?

    It's fuzzier in the middle of the scope and clearer on the outer edge. This is at all distances.

    If you have not adjust the ocular maybe you could just focus the target and get a blury image of the reticule. If its a mildot ret you could get a better image of the post of the reticle than the center of it.

    I noticed the same with mine last Sunday, rightly or wrongly putting it down to the light conditions at that time. Do you use a sun shade? I don’t.

    Yeah I have a sun shade fitted to the scope. When I range find down the middle of the scope because it's a little fuzzy I'm a little bit out on the distance which in turn causes the clicks to be out.

    Eyup Bill, I only get that effect using my HFT scope when viewing 15 yard target's, have you let anyone else at the club look through the scope at all, and if so, do they get the same view, I would get Calps to look through it on Saturday mate.

    I'm sorry I've put this post up for positive feedback, not for bitching about other people.

    It could also be a fogging issue. They tend to fog up from the centre outward, and sometimes a clear edge can remain.
