    From on a pitching deck the average error would be 10 times more than what I got at rest, no doubt.
    And with regard to your second comment, my accuracy gets better (on land) when I use a more powerful scope.  The best measurements I have ever achieved were with a 7X scope on a Tamaya Jupiter, but a more powerful scope definitely adds to the degree of difficulty when in motion, hence the need for multiple scopes!
    Merry Christmas!

    The quality of the workmanship is superb.
    Now shoot a round of star sights this evening and make a comparison, and for a real test try it off a pitching deck, and tell us the results. ;-)
    IMO, there are two fundemental things that increase the abilty to make difficult sights. Larger mirrors, and a scope with a wide field of view.
