Default Athlon Cronus BTR 4.5-29x56 APRS illumination

I've had an issue with illumination on these scopes.

Right side of the reticle is brighter than the left side and has a bit of bleeding. First scope was bad enough that I sent it back to Athlon. They couldn't fix it and sent me a new scope (Thanks for great customer service!).

Unfortunately the new scope does the same thing though not as pronounced. It's usable but irritating.

Anybody else have this issue with this scope?

Don't be shy about sending it back a 2nd time. Make Athlon fix it right.

Am definitely curious to hear if anyone else experienced this or if it is an isolated incident (though it happened to you twice.).
I agree with VintageDude88, though; make Athlon fix it right. Good luck with it.
