The Sightmark Citadel riflescope is equipped with a side focus dial that is used to eliminate parallax and finely focus the image. Parallax occurs when the image of the target does not focus at the same optical plane as the reticle inside the riflescope. When parallax is present, the reticle appears to move over the target when the shooter’s eye is not centered to the eyepiece. Adjusting the side focus dial properly will eliminate parallax.
Windage and Elevation Adjustments
The Sightmark Citadel riflescope has finger adjustable elevation and windage adjustments with audible clicks. The Citadel LR2 have locking, pop-up turrets. These turrets must be pulled up to disengage the locking mechanism. Once disengaged, adjustments can be made. When adjustments are finished, the turret can be pushed back down to lock the adjustment
The LR2 reticle is based on milliradian (mrad or mil) design. Milliradian is a measurement of angle. A single mil is equal to 3.6″ at 100 yards. The adjustments in the Citadel 3-18×50 and 5-30×56 riflescope is .1mrad, meaning that each click will move the point of impact .36″ at 100 yards or 1cm at 100 meters. The reticle is a first focal plane reticle. This style of reticle will grow along with the image as magnification is increased. The advantage of a first focal plane reticle is that the dimensions of the reticle will be true at any magnification. Therefore, rangefinding and performing holdovers can be done at any point in the magnification range.
The Sightmark Citadel riflescope eyepiece is designed to rotate to adjust for diopter. Diopter is the measurement of the eye’s curvature. By rotating the eyepiece, the diopter is adjusted to properly match each person’s vision. If the reticle does not appear clear, crisp, nor sharp, rotate the eyepiece until the reticle becomes clear and sharp. This adjustment should stay the same unless the riflescope’s operator changes.
