Just sent a Vortex Viper HS back today that had fairly significant parallax error when adjusted for the clearest image. To get rid of the parallax, the scope had to be adjusted where the image was blurry. Seems it wasn't calibrated precisely.

I watched the video.  That is the best explanation I have seen for parallax vs image focus.

I'm having a hard time placing that accent.

Boston?
Maine?


Great explanation, by the way; we should put a sticky on this thread, it will be linked to often.
Freedom is something you take.
Respect is something you earn.
Equality is something you whine about not being given.
