I read somewhere and have forgotten it, but what is the best, easiest, most foolproof method to focus your eyepiece?

    Basically it's just a matter of adjusting the eye piece on the ocular end while looking through the scope at a light colored surface,I like a clear blue sky,until the reticle is at its sharpest to YOUR eye. Tip-don't look at the reticle too long or your eye will compensate. Adjust using short glances until reticle is sharp. One more step I do is to fine tune. I have an orange No Trespassing sign mounted on my 100yd target backboard and I fine tune the focus ring until the lettering on that sign is at its clearest and of course recheck the reticle's sharpness.  This WORKS for me.
