    new video test of a zoom from 12x to 24x. the shadowing is now gone. if you get this issue. it has been determined that its due to the scope not being optically centered. scope crosshairs need to be a close to the center of adjustment range as possible.  Or at least not severely low. some of use run our setups so that we can gain as much up elevation as possible. this causes the shadowing to come into play when zoomed way in.  we're working to get this issue corrected so it becomes a non-issue,

    Experiencing the same problem.  Using a Blackhound 6 x 24, FX adjustable rings.  I purposely zeroed the scope so I had the most available room to dial for distance.  I may need to rezero the scope as close to center within the turret adjustment as possible.

    that's what corrected some of the issue with my element helix SFP. I had to re-center and re-sight-in the scope. the video quality increased. but now there is an eye relief issue when zoomed way in to 24x. I get circle shadowing when looking through the scope.

    That's why some scopes can't go to max magnification even if they offer it. The Helix might be one of those. I don't own one but I have the Titan and I tested it yesterday and was clear all the way. 

    I'll have to order a Helix one day, but just keep that in mind, cheap scopes pushed to the limit can result in suboptimal results

    New video up in the hunting section. This is where things currently stand with my setup. Poor chipper doesn’t stand a chance.
