    I'm still trying to get over the fact that you have a home phone.

    Not all of us live in an area with good cell phone coverage. I vary the brightness of the cross hairs based on the ambient light and how night adapted my eyes are. That means that I usually start out brighter than they end up later in the night.

    Crosshair Brightness? That is really up to you. I found that for the sake of recording, it helps to have the brightness turned up higher than you need it for it to stand out better in the recorded version.

    I also prefer that the center dot be black and the lines be white on white hot and vice versa on black hot. That is a personal preference such that the exact aim point will stand out.

    At least it is a cordless.

    Lots of folks up north can't get a cel phone signal in their town. North Central Plains states have terrible Cel phone coverage no matter what they say.
