I accidentally shot my sun screens off my chrony a month ago. I can't remember what weather was like last weekend. Today on November Blue sky I think in fact I know for sure It was some how consistently adding a 100 FPS to each load.OR maybe last week it was subtracting a 100 FPS. Any how what cause's false readings?Lets just say I'm sure something is malfunctioning ?

Do you have access to another chronograph? The only way to find out!

DF has the only practical way for the average guy to find out. But, with only a hundred fps difference how do you really tell which chrono is wrong?? Or if either one is wrong.Send it back to CHRONY and let them sort it out.
