I dont know much about night vision scopes. I have a bunch of wild hogs that are very nocturnal. I need a night vision scope to see well enough to shoot about 100 yads. I saw a ATN night vision scope, generation 1, 3* priced at $400.
The ATN I saw also has a smaller scope mounted on top...
Is that a day light scope?
ATN offers a good selection of quality first generation night vision scopes such as this MK 350. With ambient light you can take shots around 100 yards or a bit more. The device you have seen on the top of the scope is not another scope, but an infrared illuminator. Without ambient light this will allow you to see objects in total darkness. Keep in mind that these are dedicated night vision scopes, and the use of them in daylight will destroy them.
I bought the scope you are refering to. We also have a hog problem here in South Texas to. I just got in from the farm sighting in the scope. It's
performance was way better than I expected. Great scope.
Last night the moon was about a third and some clouds and I could see the 100yd target easily, and at 200 yd berm I think I could tell the differnce from a cow and a deer. I was hoping the cows would be near the shooting range tonight so I could see what they looked like, but no luck.
Thanks for the info.
Do you think you can see better with a little moon light or better in total darkness?
Do you think you could make out horns with no light at 75 yards?
Sorry for all the questions but I am on the fence on what scope to get.
I have only had it out 2 nights so my info is limited, but both nights there was some moonlight and I could see the 2" bullseye @ 100yd berm w/o the IR. When I turned the IR it looked like I turned on a spotlight and saw even better. I was going to sight in @ 100yds last night, but a cold front blew in w/ 30 mph gust, so I shut it down. I did sight in @ !" low @ 25yds and the scope adjustment worked fine. Also it looks like a very well made scope. One thing I forgot to add @100yds when I put the crosshair over the bullseye it did cover it up but I could tell I was in the center of the target.
