Having a hard time selecting a Night Vision scope, goggle or monocular from our huge selection? Need to know the difference between Gen 1, 2, 3 and 4? Just ask!

Can you tell me from your experience, is it better to get a Night Vision scope that will be used only for Night Hunting. Or is it as easy as it seems to use the ATN PS22 with my excisting Mark IV.

NV is a low resolution technology, so forget cranking your daytime scope up to 9x when using this product. You will need to keep magnification at 6x or less if you expect any kind of image quality. Would suggest more like 3x or 4x. Also, if your scope is zeroed in for 300 yard shooting, you will still need to sight in for a range more appropriate for NV. For a gen 2, I'd look at sighting in at 100-150 yards.
