It's the Kowa 883 with 25-60 wide angle zoom. The Kowa is much heavier than the Nikon PROSTAFF 5 Fieldscope (20-60x82mm).

Yep, that's my lanai. I live on Kaneohe Bay across from the Marine Base.

I was looking at a stop sign at the Marine base 2 miles or 3.2 km away. I can read the sign when it is in the middle of the field of view. But, if I move the sign outside the middle...towards the edge (but not far edge) then "STOP" become blurry. I have to adjust the focus slightly to read "STOP" again. So the focus is different for the sweet spot in the middle and outside that sweet spot. I'm curious if that is normal?
