of these 5x's, will the Night Scout or Night owl give the best all round viewing experience? Most use will be for birding followed by being used for wildlife.

The picture and useability on both units is very similar. What isn't similar are the ergonomics and weight. The ATN weighs almost 53 ounces and feels a bit clumsy. The Night Owl is much more sleek and modern feeling. The picture quality if you twist my arm would go to the Night Scout, and ATN is a user friendly company, but both are similar. The main difference is the way they feel and the weight.
