Where I shoot we donít have subzero temperatures so I donít have your experience but how about a different approach?
Did any of you made tests to support that thesis?
My belief is that the biggest factor in the differences that I read here are related with light/contrast and not
temperature and they are related.
Rod and all others with March scopes buy a 55mm UW filter attach it to the scope and experience differences off 5 yards at 55yards.
I think you have something there.
I use transition lenses in my specs.
Since I started using them I have noticed the difference in summer and winter discrepancies in range finding is less so light intensity is most probably a factor.
Anyone who has dabbled in photography knows that brighter light requires a reduction in aperture causing an increase in depth of field.
The converse is also true, ie less light requires a larger aperture thus a decrease in depth of field.
