Docter Classic 8x56 rifle scope comes to its best when the light fades and hunter has only couple of minutes left to make the shot or not. In such moment almost all other scopes fail since they are too dark or have a reticle “too thin to be visible” for a precise shot. Docter Classic 8x56 however was designed for such light conditions and really stands out in such hunting situations. It has a fixed magnification and thus lower number of lenses light has to cross (on each air/glass surface in the rifle scopes some light gets lost) on its path to the marksman eye. Combined with sophisticated multilayer Docter Multitop coating on all lens surfaces this yields a light transmission rate higher than 92% for the visible light.
All other aspects of this scope were also designed primarily for low light use. It has a wide diameter exit pupil of 7mm, which is optimal for eye perception of a bright image and reticles especially suited for low light situations (1 and 4). Because of all this features Docter names this scope “wild boar scope” and there is truly not many better options for hunting wild boars from a raised hind in low light than this scope. Docter also produces illuminated version of this scope that you can see HERE.
Mounting of Docter Classic 8x56 scope is possible with wide range of LM rail mounts.
