If you’re a long range shooter, this is the lens for you. The Mirage coating process filters visual waves of mirage in order to see the target object more clearly while still using the mirage to determine speed and direction of the wind. The shooter needs to practice in order to understand the change of wave action when using this lens. Once competent, the shooter can use the higher powered magnification of the scope without blurring the target with mirage waves. The Mirage is truly a handy and powerful tool for long range target shooters and hunters.
