You are using the parallax to focus?
No. I adjusted the diopter and went from 5 to high magnification it just gets very blurry. Scope looses focus as vision gets magnifed

I hope that it’s not a faulty scope. If i try to refocus using the diopter at high magnification then the reticle gets blurry

Set the scope to its highest magnification then adjust the parallax knob and see if it will focus.

If it doesn’t get any better after some trouble shooting, contact Steiner. I had a new M7XI that had a similar issue and they eventually replaced it.

I agree which is why I got rid of mine after they replaced it. My point was though that there was only so much troubleshooting I could do to try and bring the image in focus on the upper magnifications and it turned out to be a warranty issue.

I think Steiner has excellent customer service. I broke my t5 5-25 (my fault). Sent it in for repair with a note that I had an upcoming match and it came back fixed 6 days after I sent it. No charge
