Need help selecting Gen1 NV
I am new to the forum and need help selecting a good night vision monocular below 200$.
I have narrowed down to 3
1)NightOwl Nexgen II Monocular 50MM
2)Yukon 4x50 mm Spirit
3)Yukon Advanced Optics NVMT 4x50mm
I have more inclination towards Yukon Spirit as it uses standard AA cells. However, I read in one customer review that it is not good without IR illuminator as light amplification is minimal. And, I could not find any differences between the 2 Yukon models.
There is no possibility of trying them out myself as I am buying it online. My usage is purely as an aid during camping and night trekking.
Please advise me in this regard. Any other suggestions in the same budget range is much appreciated.
Thanks for your help.

Thanks for the reply. About Night Owl, I was refering to Night Owl NexGen II Monocular 50mm (plastic lens) NOXM50 [url]http://www.opticsplanet.com/night-owl-nextgen-2-monocular.html[/url]. I believe this is 5x magnification. Sorry I did not put in the model no. I am surprised about the plastic lens. Is that good or bad? Yukon Twilight is tempting. But I do not want to spent that much as the usage will be minimal, ie., few times a year.
