    I have poor eyes. I believe I want a wide angle 5x scope as my range is only going to be 30 yards. I need a diopter.
     
    I never used scopes before but I can’t use open sight at all. I looked and looked but can’t find something that seems it would work.  Also, I’ll be walking and standing shooting so too high a magnification becomes a problem.
     
    I’d love suggestions. Peace and Thank You.

Maybe you should look at a quality red/green dot?

    Have you talked to your optometrist about your vision and your sport?  I am not sure what a diopter is and how it relates to near vision and scope needs?  I have seen it used to describe vision correction, however, I am out of my area of experience.  I had LASIK 20 years ago and have not kept up with opthalmology terms since.

    dunno red dots are not really for the sizes of targets you shoot with airguns, never got much more than soda can size groups out of em. But if thats what you need.

    I would just opt for a decent quality 3-9×40 one inch tube with the extra wide view of angel. ie hawke panorama or like a nikko sterling diamond max. Set the scope on what ever power you want. For backyard hunting i usually run my 4.5-14 at 6x.

    Thank you. I liked the Hawke Scopes. Actually, the Hawke Vantage is what I’m leaning to though the Panorama would be more versatile and would be better on my target rifle if I wanted to exchange them (pain to do that though..re-sighting ).  I liked the mil dot alternative and they offer AO for my eyes. Cheers.
