    ^I'm not so sure it's the scope anymore simply because nobody else who has looked through it sees any distortion at all.

    Perhaps there is something slightly "off" in the scope, maybe in or out of spec, that isn't noticeable by most people but for some reason it doesn't look right given your particular astigmatism?

    Here is a thought - does what you see change on whether or not you have prescription eyewear on? Maybe you’re not quite getting the correct correction?

    I'm thinking a visit to the optometrist is the first order of business to rule out any refractory errors with my eye. He would also be able to identify any pathology that would require a follow up visit with an ophthalmologist.

    I haven't thought of that...but then, I'm not sure if there is enough focus adjustment on the scope to accommodate for my terrible vision!

    On a side note, while looking through it again tonight, I observed that the effect has diminished from my initial report. Playing with focus and position has been helpful. Still, it doesn't explain what happened originally.

    go directly to ophthalmologist, skip optometrist until you need glasses, that's what they're for
