I've spent some time reading these Q&As - very helpful stuff.
I'm looking at Gen1 goggles
, 1X mag), which will be used primarily for fun. I understand that I won't be getting the greatest quality with Gen1, but my for-fun budget doesn't cover anything more expensive.
I was trying to compare the Bushnell
1x20 (261020) goggles
, the Yukon
Viking 1x24 (25025) goggles
, the ATN
Night Cougar (15011), and the Night Detective
Flip-Up Pro (ND-NV-NDNG4PRO) goggles
. I have a few questions I hope you can answer:
1. The Night Detective
set offers adjustable width (distance between eyepieces) and adjustable IR illuminator (intensity and dispersion). Are these features really helpful (ie compared to fixed width models)?
2. The ATN
& Night Detective
sets list as Gen 1+. Does this differ significantly from the Gen 1?
3. The lens diameter varies between units (ie 20mm to 24mm), which should allow more/less light into the unit. Are the differences between lens sizes noticeable?
4. The Yukon
sets do not specify a bright-light protection circuit - do these units have such a feature?
5. The Night Detective
has the face-mask style headgear - is this any less comfortable than the head/chin-strap arrangement?
A bunch of questions I know! Any help would be much appreciated though. Thanks in advance.
