As you will be aware we are demonstrating the fantastic new Yukon Photon digital night vision riflescope at this weekend's Stalking Fair.
Mounted to a rather special looking piece of hardware, you can try out the Photon with the built in laser IR, or we are also lucky enough to have the brand new prototype of the fully covert Nightmaster Infrared illuminator attached to the device also. With a shorter illumination range than the NM800IR, the new illuminator operates in the completely covert spectrum, so is ideal for wild boar etc who appear very subsceptical to non covert IR devices...i.e they get spooked easy!
We have been testing the Yukon Photon in the field, and for a nv riflescope with an envisaged retail price of £399 you will be gobsmacked at the performance for the investment, particularly when combined with a Nightmaster.
With a detection range of up to 190metres, built in Laser IR, illuminated reticle and video out for recording footage, external power supply input, and weaver accessory rail (ideal for a NM800IR) the new Yukon Photon 5x42 V is simplistic in it's features, making it very easy to use, but remarkable in it's performance vs money.
(At distances of up to 150m with a Nightmaster, it was as clear as an N750 on a fox sized object)
Nice and easy to zero with traditional turrets, and illuminated reticle (with NV mode for night use), we are so impressed with the performance, for short to medium range use at night, it will inevitably dominate the NV market.
We will be showing a variable range field test demo video of the Nightmaster IR illuminator v On Board built in Laser IR at the show, and of course you can try the new covert Night Master, and the current best selling Nightmaster NM800IR on the Photon in our dark tunnel (albeit at restricted range, given stand space limitations)
As this post is written we do not have a confirmed delivery time, however we anticipate late April/May, so we hope to be able to take initial pre-orders at the show only, with a small deposit, as with current interest being so huge we expect to sell out of our substantial pre-order stock before it arrives!
Thanks for reading.
