PCP Airgun Shooters need a scope that can range or focus down to 10 yards.
Shooters also prefer a scope that has a side focus, as reaching
way out to focus the front objective lens can be a chore.
The Aeon Scopes can do this and more! Another thing that I like
is that the reticle is etched onto the glass. I have some high end
scopes where the wire for the reticle has broken. This won't happen
with an Aeon PCP Airgun Scope. Now, I shoot and have some nice scopes
on my PCP Airguns (mostly the Bushnell 4200 Elite Front Focus).
I purchased an Elite 4200 Side Focus and even a Bushnell 6500 (a very
hig-dollar side-focus) for my PCP Airguns. the 6500 cost almost
3x's as much as an Aeon PCP Scope. I can honestly say that when I
compare the 6500 with the Aeon, that the AEON scope (that is 1/3 the
price of the 6500) is better and that I prefer the Aeon over the
Bushnell. Getting a PCP Airgun scope with these features, with this quality, and at this price is extremely rare. In
my opinion, the AEON PCP Airgun Scope is one of the very few, if not
the only, scope that can offer that kind of performance at this price.

and tactical shooters need scopes with good low-light performance. For
a scope to perform well at dawn and dusk, it needs good light
transmission. AEON has fully multi-coated optics for maximum light
transmission. The scopes are constructed from a single piece of
aluminum for a lifetime of use.
They are nitrogen filled to make them fog-proof and are designed by airgunners for airgunners.
Choosing a High-Magnification Scope:
the right scope for precision target shooting can be very simple, or
you can spend weeks agonizing over the decision. You should carefully
inspect focus, clarity, the alignment of the cross-hairs, eye relief
and the exit pupil size. Buying a cheap 32-power scope is just going to
make you miserable if it isn't sharp or if the exit pupil is too small.
If possible, before you buy, examine scopes at a gun store or check out
the scopes on your buddies rifles. Try out the turrets, check the
'feel' of the parallax adjustment, and view a variety of different
reticules. You may find you have a strong preference for a particular
cross-hair thickness, or you may want the ranging capability offered by
Mildot and Trajectory or multi-line [Christmas tree] reticules. Aeon
scopes have all three available.
two scopes with equal optical resolution (sharpness), and give one
better image contrast and it will be better for target use. More
contrast helps you resolve fine lines and pick out bullet holes better.
Some scopes have excellent light transmission, but they would appear
much sharper if they were tuned for better contrast. Image quality can
also be improved with lens coatings that filter out UV and specific
blue wavelengths that degrade perceived image sharpness.
the scope on your rifle and see if you can easily view the centered
full image in a stable, comfortable shooting position with the butt
touching your shoulder. With some scopes, excessive eye relief makes
this impossible. If you're acquiring a zoom scope, check for eye relief
variations as you change the magnification. A scope that offers
near-constant eye relief is much easier to use in the field. You're not
constantly moving your head back and forth to get a consistent image
through the eyepiece.
objectives (front lens elements) of equal size, the more magnification
the scope, the smaller the exit pupil. Remember that the exit pupil, a
tiny circle of light, must deliver ALL the optical data your eye
receives. Bigger is better by far. Too small an exit pupil will make a
good scope dim and hard to use. Of course there is a maximum limit the
human eye can use. In low light, the human eye can typically dilate to
5mm - 7mm. The exact amount of dilation varies with the individual, and
typically declines, with increasing age, from 7mm (at age 20) to a
dark-adapted pupil of about 5-5.5mm by age 65. To take full advantage
of a scope's light-gathering capacity, the diameter of an eyepiece exit
pupil should be no larger than the max diameter of your eye's
dark-adapted pupil, so that all of the light collected by the scope
enters your eye, rather than falling on the iris. A large 8mm exit
pupil may seem good, but it would be partly 'wasted' on a shooter in
scope, no matter how expensive, is good for competition if the
cross-hairs change position from shot to shot, or if the elevation and
wind-age adjustments are not repeatable. When you buy a scope you
should immediately do a 'box-test' to confirm the scope's
repeatability. Fire one shot, then crank in 6 moa up, fire another
shot, add 6 moa right, fire the third shot. Then crank 6moa down
elevation and fire the fourth. Finally add 6 moa left wind-age and fire
your last shot. If the scope is working right, the fifth and final shot
should be right on top of the first (assuming no wind shifts). While I
had someone do the box test with an AEON scope on a spring-pellet gun
with perfect results, I did something different.
Starting with a
full tin of 500 I sighted-in. Then after my first shot on target, I
turned the turret one full revolution up and then shot again. After
that I turned one revolution down--shot. Then another revolution
down--shot. Then one revolution up--shot. One more up--shot. One
down--shot. Another down--shot, for 500 shots; I had three beautiful
groups. AEON passed the test !!!
Adjustable objective or side-focus:
popularity of high magnification scopes with side-wheel parallax
adjustment has made the job of calculating the range to target much
more achievable and certainly more user-friendly. Adjustable objective
lenses work fine. But, in the World of Field Target shooting
anything that makes the job easier is a welcome addition to the
shooter's arsenal. All AEON scopes are side-focus down to 10 meters.
you didn't see the logo you'd swear you were using a scope that cost
easily twice or even three times the price. I use professional grade
glass on my camera lenses and the Aeon compares with ease. This scope
provides great clarity and crisp contrast. Need more light on your
target on an overcast day? Just turn on the lighted red or green
reticle. Windage and elevation controls are designed for big fingers
and are clearly numbered with clicks you can hear and feel. The Aeon is
one solid piece of shooting equipment. As far as this airgunner is
concerned it's the perfect scope whether you shoot field target,
benchrest or hunting.

built several astronomical mirrors from scratch, I have become a bit
familiar with star testing. So, I tried that with my new Aeon 8-32X50.
The results were most satisfying. I could not detect any spherical
aberration. Since I was doing it during the daytime chromatic
aberration is difficult to detect. If there is any it is not a serious
problem. So optically the Aeon is great, in my opinion. A more
intangible assessment is one concerning image quality: the Aeon is very
good, again, in my opinion. One feature of this scope that I
particularly like is its overall length of 14.25" which was shorter
than the scope I had on the rifle before. This shorter length made the
rifle much more comfortable while still giving me access to the pellet
loading area on my Weihrauch HW97K. The 16" Leupold scope I sold to get
this one cramped me both at the front and the back. Does the above mean
I like the Aeon? It most certainly does and I can recommend them to any
one, especially those tempted to buy more expensive scopes on their
