    NV -What have you got ?

    Im thinking of investing in a NV scope or maybe an attachment for an existing scope , budget max is 1200 ish , Im keen to hear your recommendations and experiences .

    I recently used a NV750 scope and thought it was a good bit of kit , anyone have an opinion on these ?

    Thanks In Advance.

    What are you wanting to use it for - what sort of range etc and on what rifle(s)?

    I'd be looking hard at the Yukon Photon and doubler and a Nightmaster NM800 IR - well under your budget, but a safe first foray into NV.

    I'd hold off on the 200+ NM800 and try a converted T20 torch for 45 odd..... available from Marky610/nite-tek or sikastag/Ian/IR lightbuilds. Somewhere in here www.nightvisionforumuk.com View forum - Sales and wanted items, swaps, e.t.c

    Loads of useful info on that forum on the Photon and the T20's.

    Using my G3 14 last night with the T20 on the Photon turned on I could see a biq square of the focused T20 on the field way out to an easy 200m. There are other options too and all cheaper than the NM.... although I do have one in red and find that very useful for spotting.

    I wouldn't advise the Photon for Foxing with a .204 - You need at least an N750 with a doubler + a good IR Illuminator.

    V8 90 why wouldnt you advise the photon ?

    I don't think the picture quality is good enough for 150yd + (I have 1 on a Hmr) A doubler can be fitted but the screen inside is what it is.
