The Pulsar N550
is the way to go. For about $1400 you are getting a digital NV scope that is better than most gen 2 scope and rivals some gen 3. I have been fortunate enough to try almost all the gen 2 scope, monoculars
we have and this N550
from Pulsar beats them all out. You will have a realistic recognition range of about 175 yards with decent conditions. It also has a few different reticles to choose from and the choice of a white or black crosshair. Digital NV uses a black and white image which is also great for color contrasts. I think youd be quite happy with this unit.
