OK, I'm trying to figue out what the eye relief is for the Aimpoint 3x magnifier (going to use it with an EOtech sight).

So far I have found:

"at 5° FOV 40 – 90 mm at full FOV 60 – 65 mm"

WTH does this mean?  Admittedly I am a noob, but what is 5 degrees of FOV vs. the Full FOV, and why such a huge spread on the eye relief?

I like maximum eye relief (used to 3.5"-4.0" from my Zeiss and Sightron scopes).

Thanks for the help!

Field of View  = FOV

at 5 degrees no closer than 40mm and no further away from it than 90mm

At full field of view 60mm to 65mm is ideal and you will see a little wider angle "full field of view"

To me it sounds like it will be in focus from  4centimeters to 9 centimeters and my guess about the 5 degrees is that is the angle  of what you see looking through the scope

Does that sound right?


As for why such a spread on eye relief - it is advantageous for the scope to be useable in fast action and more in focus area front to back eye relief is a good thing.
