Indecisive Newb Needing Advice

Hi, I'm 14, new to night vision, and am looking at buying my first device. I have a price range of about $100-150 and think I have it narrowed down to either the Night Owl NONEXGEN-W 2.0x and the Yukon Spirit 2x24 (both monoculars). The Night owl looks the nicer, but I also like Yukon's lifetime guarantee. I plan on using it mostly for camping, but to be honest I just want to have night vision to fulfill a minor childhood dream :lol: . I figured you guys would know more than me, so any input on which to buy or even other models that I could choose would be greatly appreciated (I am currently leaning towards the night owl and plan on purchasing tonight)! Thanks in advance!

The warranty does not apply to the intensifier tube, just the manufacturing of the housing. Both are quality units with virtually the same performance. Go with the Night Owl since you seem to be leaning that way.
