Bit of both depending on the day. Usually more crisp than starburst.
I already use the 2.5 MOA dot and it’s pretty fuzzy.Can you change the size? I’ve found smaller is tighter. I drive my left thumb at the target which gets me amazingly close to being on target. Then I pick up the dot. I no longer have good eyesight so my apologies if this isn’t helpful.
Yeah I do too. I only have it in 2 guns. Was considering adding one for a .45, but if it’s never going to be “clear” for me, might as well not waste the money.Also deal with astigmatism. It's 90% of the reason I stick to irons.
I have glasses somewhere lol. Maybe I’ll try them to see what the dot looks like.I too deal with astigmatism. A lot depends on which red dot it is. The green holosun reticles seem to work better for me. I did take my optic with me to the eye dr last time to see if there would be an improvement. I don’t normally wear glasses but they do help with the dot crispness. I notice also if my eyes are fatigued it makes a difference.
What optics are you currently using? Does this starburst happen with corrective lenses? Some people have better luck with different manufacturers as far as sharpness of reticle than others.Yeah I do too. I only have it in 2 guns.

I shoot irons well enough.

There is a strong liklihood that no matter what optic you try you will always have that 'starburst' sight picture.
Unless you are shooting bullseye and require exceptional accuracy; let's say the starburst on a 2.5 MOA dot doubles the size into a 5 MOA dot. That dot covers 1.25" at 25 yards if you do your part.
For a standard width 0.1" front sight post that would be 10 MOA or cover 2.5" at 25 yards.
Getting a 509T on Mon or Tue, will be interesting to see if that has less burst than the 507c and k I have. Will post back if I remember toI also have this issue, but it’s just something I’ve learned to deal with. Enjoy shooting dots that much…
I think I recall hearing the having an enclosed emitter also eliminates starburst effect for folks with astigmatism issues. Those optics are the Acro and the Holosun 509T. I’m sure there are others, but can’t name them off the top of my head.
I also could be wrong about enclosed emitter optics, but I’m 90% sure I have this correct.
I’ve really been wanting to try this specific reticle.Starbursts with anything more than 2MOA here. When I’m outside shooting the starburst with 2+ MOA clears up significantly for me.
If you’re comfortable aiming with a chevron instead of a dot, primary arms made holosuns with an “ACSS Vulcan” reticle for 507C, K, and 509T too. The top tip of the chevron zero’d at 25 yards makes the bottom part of the top tip 50 yards, and the bottom of the legs of the chevron 100yards but I’m always surprised how little I have to adjust to hit 100 out that I don’t really rely on that, just nice to have.
Costs the same, I run them on every pistol now that’s consistently capable up hitting 50 yards+, easy to pick up without the “big ring”, comes in red or green. My first thought when I tried one was based on my concern that the chevron would occupy a large portion of my sight picture but it’s actually pleasantly smaller than I thought it would be. Doesn’t obstruct at all.

while I can’t see it through your eyes, it’s clear and crisp without even the slightest starbursting whatsoever for me. Like not even a single twinkle.I’ve really been wanting to try this specific reticle.
