Only the center dot should be illuminated. Make sure you are in a dark area and your eyes have adjusted to the dark. I do not have enough posts to be able to show you a picture. I find that I have to open both scope covers to see the dot correctly and keep the illumination setting only high enough for the center dot. That is when it works the best for night hunting cohorts.
I appreciate the feedback.
It sounds like the illumination behind the mil-quads is supposed to be hidden, and not light up at all? The outline effect on the bottom right of the mil-quad diamonds light up almost as bright as the center dot does, and more so on vertically on the elevation crosshair than across the windage one.
There is not a lot of difference in the brightness between the center dot and the rest of it that's lighting up. With my eyes adjusted to the dark, when I turn the brightness down to where the mil-quad diamonds aren't lighting up hardly at all, the center post is super dim at that level. For example at level 5, I can barely make out the center dot and the vertical diamonds are almost as bright, or at least the bottom right edges of the bottom right side and the top left edges.
When you turn up the brightness on yours so that it's "too high" and more than just the center dot are illuminated, do the mil-quad diamonds light up "offset" like in my pictures? That offset appearance specifically to me seems like something is wrong, but as I mentioned this one is the only one I've looked through.
It's interesting this forum software doesn't seem to allow you to edit your posts. Is that right, or am I missing where that's possible?
