Mirage filters just enough of the visible wavelength so that your target is clear while allowing enough mirage waves to determine the speed and direction of the wind.
When viewed through optics, such as a spotting or sniper scope, a mirage is extremely visible because light rays are diffracted to form a false image at the shooter’s or observer’s position.
The cold air has a higher refractive index as it is much denser than the warm air which could cause inconvenience while shooting. Light rays bend away from the direction of the temperature gradient as they pass from colder air across a sharp border to significantly hotter air.
When light rays travel from hotter to cooler temperatures, they bend in the direction of gravity. Mirages are classified into three types: inferior, superior, and Fata Morgana. Precision shooters frequently encounter inferior mirage which is also known as the desert or highway mirage.
Barrel mirage is another common mirage that occurs when the rifle barrel heats up, which usually happens when the shooter fires more than 10-15 rounds without taking a prolonged break between those shots. Don’t lose your perfect shot to a mirage. Get the mirage scope and set your eyes straight on the target.
The mirage lens provides the perfect setting so that you can see your target more clearly. If you use the rifle scope with power options greater than 15X, reduce the power level to around 10-12X. When viewed through this setting, the target may appear more clearly. The Mirage lens provides the best UV light protection by eliminating ghosting and reflection. On cloudy, overcast days, this provides the best visibility. If the sniper observes a constant, it can use a frame of comparison behind the target to ascertain where the stability is
