On a positive note, the eye relief is more than average at 18mm. This is long enough that everyone can have clear field of view, even with glasses on. The minimum eye relief required for clear view with glasses is 15mm, so at 18mm, the ACULON AL11 is more than sufficient.
- Ranging With Style
The ACULON Cheap rangefinder is programmed in distant target priority mode. It means that it will display the range of the utmost target amongst a group of targets measured.

However, with Distant Target Priority, you may run into problems if you hunt much on the open plain. There is a chance that it will try to look past your target to the tree in the background.
