I'd say the addonight if you have a suitable scope.
By that I mean a scope with low magnification and a wide field of view, something like x2.5 or x3 at the bottom of the zoom range.
The on board illuminator will be fine.

Do you even need a scope for ratting with an "Addonight" ?

Has anybody tried the CRS scopeless mount ?

I was going to mention that, but I didn't know if Shane was actually selling the scopeless mount yet, plus my addonight doesn't have the facility to generate a reticle.
I understand that the newer models do have that facility.

Paul,
I don't have the firmware update at the moment, but hopefully I will in a couple of days.
