A scope is a personal preference really but there are some ground rules that do need to be followed.

any scope will be effective in a good shooters hands. however there are some bells and whistles that are nice to have.

1) For long distance shooting a scope with 40 MOA is preferable this allows for 10 MOA down and 30 MOA up giving the rifle the ability to zero for any range.

2) Hold over graphs are a beauty when your in a rapid target environment. here is an example

this is more of a hunting scope but this hold over calibration allows for rapid fire.

No, sniper scopes are generally greater power than the basic hunting scopes - 3x for hunting, as much as 40x for sniping.

That's because it is probably made of plastic with a plastic lens !!

These scopes are NOT suitable for Astronomy. They are considered TOY telescopes.

Read my tips on my profile page. You will not find any manuals for this scope.

Looking at the moon with the 50 or 100 magnification on my Vivitar Telescope all I see is a extremely small white dot. I have tried focusing back and forth very slowly to no avail. What is the problem and...


Well first thing is you bought a junk telescope. Vivitar, Bushnell, Tasco are all considered toy telescopes.

Sorry-- but it is the truth. Read my TIPS on my profile page. These scopes are NOT suitable for Astronomy. You would have been better buying a pair of 10x50mm binoculars which are almost the same lens size as this scope.

Put the eyepiece with the LOWEST number written on it into the scope. This is your highest magnification. Try the moon again with this eyepiece.

Can not seem to focus when we look through the lens we just see the bk=lack sky we cannot seem to see anything


try this:
see the mini scope on top of the telescope?--that's called the finder scope--
you look through that to see what the telescope is aimed at, just like what a sniper does before he pulls the trigger.

put in the lowest power eyepiece you have in the telescope, the one with a high number on it.

it's a good idea to align the 'finder' with the telescope during the day time--it's much easier.

if your telescope and finder scope aren't aligned properly, aiming your telescope at any target will be off and you'll just get frustrated.
to do this, look through your finder scope and pick a far away target, put in the lowest power eyepiece you have, that's the one with a high number--
high number = low power = a nice big view in the telescope.
low number on eyepiece = high magnification, like a zoom lens.

always use the lowest eyepiece first, then work your way to higher magnification, if you want to get a closer look at your target.

use lowest power eyepiece in telescope--> look through finder scope -->focus the image--> switch to higher power of eyepiece for a closer look at your target.

practice this during the day until you're comfortable, then try it at night.
try the moon, it's a nice big target

you can also use binoculars to check out the night sky.
you can try using 7x35 or 7x50 binoculars.
you see a lot more stars and it gives nice big views of the stars and constellations...and the moon...

hope this helps :D

Instruction manual for 1970's custom .22 scope with BDC


Hold the outer portion of the elevation knob and unscrew the screw on top. then pull up on the outer portion and you'll see a silver screw marked with an arrow and the word "Up". Sight the rifle at a known distance and then line up the knob with that distance as you push it down on the scope and replace the screw. I have one of these and figured this out on my own, however I'm missing the mount and would like some pictures and dimensions of the mount if any of you can get some. I'm gonna be machining a new one and would like to keep it as close to the original as possible.

Apparently this is NOT a waterproof rifle scope. I would return it as you will have this same problem only worse out in the field. Buy a waterproof nitrogen filled rifle scope.
