When doing the sidewheel markings, I find it best not to do them in sequence. I will do 55 yards then maybe 25 then go back to 50 and perhaps follow that with 15, and so on. Being a nerd, I then plot a graph of the distances between the marks, and these distances should fall on a smooth curve. If they don't, it's usually simple to spot the ringer, so I go back and check that point over and over again.

If you've adjusted the eyepiece lens to make sure the ret is sharp, then you won't have to choose between the ret and the image. Do the eyepiece adjustment before anything else, get it right and tape it up, then do the range markings.

Hope this helps. Good scopes for the money.
Thanks for the advice. Pretty sure i have the eye piece set.. looked at the sky on 10x & infinity, turned eye bell till clear & thick
In life you should not persue goals that are easily achieved, develop an instinct for what can be only just achieved through your greatest efforts.
