Well, at under $1000 you will likely be in Generation 1 night vision products. There are a couple of digital models that are in that price range or a bit higher that are equal to about Gen 2+. One is from Pulsar: http://www.opticsplanet.com/pulsar-digisight-n550-digital-night-vision-riflescope.html that is a really cool product for the price that is loaded with features. As for the IR glow. it is quite dim and only visible at short ranges, and many animals are not able to seee it.

agree with you george p, generation 1 dosen't go that far enough & the image is not that great, at lease got to spend around 2k plus to get a good generation 2 of image intensifiers tubes, to get a good & nice image, if you want it to, you got to spend that kind of a money, no pain no gain! :mrgreen:
