    I was able to get out today and try out your tips. I was putting a three round group from my air rifle into a diameter slightly larger than a quarter at 45 feet. All of the field of view was in perfect focus. This just goes to show that my education is never complete and I always have something else to learn.

    Ozark, just to be certain you understand. All scopes have a "focus" adjustment ring on the ocular (rear) lens. This adjustment focuses the cross hairs for your specific vision. This is the ring you need to adjust per 99's advice. Once you get it set optimally for your vision, lock it in.

    There is a paralax dial on the left side of tactical scopes or the front lens of target scopes if their magnification is over 10x. Although turning these dials appear to change the focus, they are for tuning the scope to the range of the target; not for tuning the scope to your vision. Best of luck to you!

    I would just shoot without your glasses.

    KUDOS~99ex: You must be a Bench Rest Shooter or a Varmint Shooter, to set-up a Scope like that!

    I have the same problem that has just started,it's not bad when I am big game hunting but for varmints and paper punching its real annoying.I have started using European style diopters,Burris,Nikon,etc.I have always been a Leupold guy and still use them on big game rifles but I can get better and finer groups with ES diopters.I am far sighted.

    I presume you are far sighted and need glasses for reading. They have an optimal focus at that distance. Hold a book at 3 to 6 inches see if the text is clear. My Dad a house painter had a pair of glasses that were very clear at arms length or should I say brush length

    habben97 first thing I tried or I wouldn't be asking the question.

    99explorer I'll try that. Thanks for the tip.

    When adjusting the focus, the idea is to get the crosshairs sharply in focus.
    Aim the scope at some bright uncluttered background like the sky (or a bright interior light with a handkerchief over the objective lens). Do this with your glasses on.
    When the crosshairs are sharp, stop. You are finished. You can then focus on specific distant objects to determine whether the scope is clear or fuzzy. Good luck.

    I am having trouble with getting a clear focus with a scope of mine. I wear glasses and have noticed that the scope is a little fuzzy at its best focus with my glasses but without them it is crystal clear. Is there something I can do to get it to focus with my glasses or should I just sight without my glasses to get a better sight picture?
