I mounted the brand new Zeiss V8 4.8-35×60 on a rifle (Ruger Precision Rifle) and wanted to see how it behaved in twilight and darkness.
On a fairly clear night, there were some light, thin clouds, I pointed the setup towards the moon.
I have to say I’m very impressed by the V8’s performance. It’s quite difficult to take photographs through a lens (a photo through a lens through a lens, what could go wrong?), so these photos don’t really do the Zeiss V8 justice but I think they are still worth sharing.
350 clicks right, 3500 clicks up…The Ruger Precision Rifle is a fine rifle, but I doubt the .308 Win would leave orbit.
I had to zoom out from x35 to fit the moon!
The stuff outside the scope is parts of my garden.
The setup in broad daylight: Ruger Precision Rifle in .308 Win with a Zeiss V8 4.8-35×60 ASV in a Spuhr SP-6002 mount. Magpul magazine with LaRue Tactical extension and TAB Gear support. Atlas bipod.
