Docter Classic 3-12x56 illuminated Details


Docter Classic 3-12x56 Illuminated Rifle Scope

Description of Docter Classic 3-12x56 Illuminated

Docter Classic 3-12x56 Illuminated hunting rifle scope is the top model in Docter Classic line of scopes and offers matching top optical quality. It was designed as a more versatile alternative to the Docter Classic 8x56 Illuminated for hunting in challenging light condition, when there is a low amount of light or almost no light at all. Compared to the fixed magnification scope it offers all the benefit of a variable magnification. It offers wide field of view at 3x magnification that is needed when shooting close range since this is quite common situation when hunting from a raised hide in the forest. It also offers additional details and accuracy at 12x magnification needed for long range shots. Multilayer coating on all lens surfaces called Docter Multitop provides great light transmission rate (shown on a graph bellow).

 Docter Classic Light Transmission Rate graph

Illuminated reticle in Docter Classic 3-12x56 illuminated is placed in First Focal Plane so it gets thicker on higher magnification and is thus more visible in low light. This construction principle also guaranties that the scope is more durable and that POI (Point of Impact) does not move with magnification change. Reticle in this scope is illuminated and the illumination system is really advanced and technologically sophisticated. Illumination intensity is not linearly dependable on button position and designed in a way that it can never be over-illuminated or would obstruct the view of the target in the dark. Graph showing intensity setting in relation to illumination button position is shown below and you can also see a VIDEO review of the illumination system.
