    ok, so what am I missing? They pretty much look the same to me, or is that the point?

    Agree with u spyker
    what exactly was the purpose and result of this test ?

    another thing, u cannot do clarity tests with a camera. if it's moved while taking the photo it will not give a true reflection of the clarity ...

    the point is: they look from bare eye are pretty much the same clarity.

    but the 2.5-10x56 with 30mm tube has a better picture from a camera.

    why?

    The pole doesn't seem to be at 200m, more like 90.

    I think so too. Defnitely not 200m. unless that pole is quite small.

    assume the 2nd one is a std 30/30 reticle........

    ie. distance between the thick posts = 30" @ 100 yds on 4X
    and on 10X it's 12" @ 100 yds.

    given the pole = 100mm, and looking at the bottom pic, therefore the distance between the posts is about 400mm.

    12" = 305mm

    400/305=1.31
    +/- 131 yds???

    What type of camera do you have Boondock? Can you set it manually? ie the f.stop and exposure time?

    Looks like the first pic is overexposed alot?

    Do you have a preference over the two scopes?

    Man that looks like a nice place to setup an FT course!
    Think you'd have to get fit with those inclines though.

    i m using a idiot proof canon v3, i will try to set manual mode and see how it goes.

    i still feel look thru a 30mm tube can have a much brigher image than 1' tube. maybe that's y the 30mm tube always got nice pic by my camera.

    the open space is outside my backyard. it's a interval between the vineyard and resident. no road lead into there. so there is nobody walk thru that space during the weekdays. i used to shoot from the position where i m shoot the pic to that deal tree. it was a very nice "range" until neighbor's sensetive ear dog issue came out. what a pity.

    the second scope is clearer, u can see the first one looks a little sharper towards the inside and loses its quality as it moves outwards, just a little somin i know from photographic lenses, the center of any lens is its highest quality and loses its quality as u move further away from the center, a good quality lens wont show this fade as much as a bad quality lens, judging by the price u paid for that first scope on ur previous thread, id say its got a Cr#p lens, so what u see here is not the size of the tube but the quality of the glass

    b4 i buy them. the dealer already told me the second scope got better lens. but i haven't found a way to proof it by myself until now. i reckon from the bare eye is really not easy to tell the difference of clarity. hehe.. maybe use a camera to do such test is good idea.
