Depends on maker of scope, some models only come with i year, that should be the first warning, if you want to try something before going back where it was purchased ....take a q-tip put just a dab of alcohol on it, touch eyepiece lense with it, now turn around to dry side of q-tip and clean lense very lightly. this may do it where its 8 years old. you never mentioned the kind of scope.hope this helps...larry@reichinstruments.com

2.5x8 variable leupold loses focus when change power


The only reason a variable power Leupold scope should lose focus when changing power is that the object you are viewing is too close to view on a high magnification. Try again while viewing something 50 yards/meters away, and if it still loses focus, then it probably needs repair.

Leupold scopes aren't user-servicable, and you wouldn't want to try to take it apart yourself, but that's okay, because Leupold has one of the best reputations among optics manufacturers for standing behind their products. If there's a problem, you can call their customer service department at 1-800-538-7653, or submit a request on their online form here:
http://www.leupold.com/corporate/contact-us/service-support/

Either way, don't give up on it. Leupolds hold their value, and you could probably even sell a problem scope to someone who is willing to send it in for repair.

Good luck!

Soon as it gets cold out it seems to want to get blurry


If your scope is fogging it has lost the nitrigon in it and you will have to send it back to the factory to be refilled and resealed. I would send it back to burris.

I have a WO IBIS 80 APO Spotting Scope. How do use it with other 1 1/4" eyepieces? The packaged zoom eyepiece seems to have a threaded attachment to the scope.


sounds like it was designed to use only the eyepiece that came with it. here is an idea...mount the scope on a tripod with no eyepiece in it...now take an 1 1/4" eyepice and place against the scope where you would put the eyepiece ..try to focus..if you cant, then slowly bring the eyepiece away from the scope till you see a sharp image..im sure a machine shop can make a sleeve to screw into your scope and hold 1 1/4" at that point.any questions i can answer call me larry@reichinstruments.com 5088331232

Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?

For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.

For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.

The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
