Expand view Topic review: YUCON NV 5X60

Post by Ryan_W on Sat May 03, 2008 10:56 am

We just pulled both of these out to do a direct comparison. The two models have nearly identical resolution. The only way to ever see is difference is to put them both on tripods against a resolution chart with a trained eye, and then you still probably would not see a difference.

The Yukon is a little larger, but is easier to hold in your right hand and focus with your left. The Bushnell is easier to hold in the left hand and focus with the right.

The Yukon has a larger lens on the IR Illuminator, and we could not determine if there was a noticable difference between the IR illuminators on the 2 models.

The Yukon comes with both an AC power adapter and a DC cigarette lighter adapter. Whether the addition of these two parts is worth the extra $80 is up to you.

rossusko, I would recommend Yukon's Ranger 5x42 or Ranger Pro 5x42 ( ... -5x42.html).

The Ranger is a great device that can be used in daylight or at night (it's protected against light exposure). The picture you see is black and white in a rectangular frame vs green and round image in a device employing gen1 tube.

It's up to you what to choose but i think it's worth considering the Ranger.

But do you think it's a good choice or it's better for me to choice a digital yucon ranger or busnell or an other digital device in the same place of price?
Thank you for your answer and congratulation for your topic.I learn many many things.

best regards

Magnification does not let you see any farther. It just shows a more magnified view of things. This is true with digital as well as conventional night vision units.

Can you give me your expert opinion to this model ?
I don't found information.I want to know if the amplitude x5 associate at the big 60 gives more distance whith a not so bad view
Thank you for your help

Best Regards :wink:
