    The designation 4 X 32 means that the scope is a four power scope with a 32 millimeter objective (front) lens. Four power simply means that it magnifies what you see by four times. It has nothing to do with the distance that you can see with it. For example, if you looked at the moon with it, you'd be seeing many thousands of miles with it. By having four power it simply means that whatever you look at through the scope will appear four times closer than it would with the naked eye. In general, the size of the objective lens, in the case of your scope it is 32 mm, will determine how much light enters the scope. The larger the objective lens, the more light will enter the scope and the brighter the image will be. Of course, the diameter of the scope tube and the quality of the lenses will have some limiting effect on how much light is transmitted though the scope to your eye.

    When you get to middle or junior high school, you'll find in your science classes that you see by having light come from the source (what you see) to your eye, which takes the light and turns it into nerve impulses that your brain processes as sight. What you can see is dependent on what's there to be seen, not the optics that you see through. Even without a scope, you can see stars that are billions of miles away.

    As far as you want to. But if you mean how far can I see a deer and shoot it, that depends. How far can you shoot and hit a deer and how much brush, weeds, cover is between you and the deer. And with only a 32 objective lens if you are looking at a deer that is in the shadow that may hamper your ability to see it. You can always see further than you can ethically shoot and hit a big game animal. So go on what is right and ethical not how far you can see.

    you turn the scope adjustment "turrets" the path you decide on your factor of impact to bypass. comprehend inspite of the undeniable fact that that your scope will possibly no longer regulate sufficient to set your scope and regulate it as far as you're able to might desire to.. this is dependant on what variety of scope mount you have on your air rifle.
