For anything like decent NV performance you'll need the most powerful one you can find!!

Cheers

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

T66 from Ir.lightbuilds, t67 from Night Vision Store, with overdriven BS II pill.
The ATN uses a high definition camera - lots of little pixels. This means the light gathering capabilty of each pixel is very low and you will basically need a spotlight to get decent range.
One shooter in OZ who is happy with his has two Nightmaster X Searchers to give enough illumination.

I used nightmaster xseacher with Clive Wards blacksun ir pill. Use sun shade with Butler creek cap with 12 mm hole drilled in Centre and leave cap closed. Will be less focus fussy and gives better depth of field. Shot a lot of foxes with it a couple at 260yrds but now use photon xt with doubler as had a lot of screen freezes with xsight and start up problems.

Hmm... Sunndog you know that there are some very powerful Xsearchers out there? Don't you? :think: :)

But of course not factory editions... Even my modded T20 beats the hell outta factory XS :lol:

Mine modded(modded by me) XS easily throws well over 1 kilometer with spotter and effio e camera.

That was a reference to the man being happy with strapping two torches to his scope. (people from sydney can be strange types)
