Hi Zach,Thank you John. I feel a little silly not having noticed that myself, but it makes me feel a little better knowing it isn't "off"!
With corrected vision the dioptre setting of my 8x56 SLC is spot on at 0 but is "off" in another sense.
I believe that at the infinity setting the black wedge on the focusser should be at 12 o'clock and the "SLC 8x56" lettering horizontal, but on mine it's upside down.
This is in line with a close focus of 4,6 m (4 m spec.) with corrected vision and a focus overtravel of at least 7 dioptres (5 d spec.).
It doesn't bother me in the least but I'm sure Lee and the other entymologists would reject it with horror.
