Okay, it think I have it sighted now. On the most zoomed out setting.

I think with glasses it's hard to get it in focus.

I got the crosshairs in focus but then I have to zoom way out to keep the image in the scope in focus.
Is there any way to focus the image regardless of the zoom magnification?

Also,if I change zoom will I have to sight my scope again?

Most of my shooting will be under 75'. And more like 30-40'

Yeah, take the glasses off to use a scope. Glasses get in the way both physically and in terms of reflections, and especially if they're graduated focus it becomes very difficult to get the right spot on the lens lined up with your scope consistently.

If your crosshairs and target object aren't in focus at the same time you'll need to adjust the objective lens focus until they are both focused at your average shooting distance. They'll be a little bit mis-matched at other distances but close enough. If it's not an adjustable objective type scope (AO) then you can probably still adjust it, with great care, using some sort of pin tool to engage the tiny slots on both sides of the objective lens to loosen it and move it.

If it's not a first, or front focal plane reticle, then yes, every different zoom level will have a different zero. You can use Chairgun if you like to make up charts of holdovers for various zoom levels.
