The biggest jump in performance occurs between Gen 1 and gen 2. Going to Gen 2 gets you better range, in general. Specifically, Gen 2 gets you

1)considerably better light amplification - can operate without an IR under quarter moon

2)better resolution with much better optical screen quality, with none of the fish eye distortion found in Gen 1

3)extended tube life

4)1970s technology, instead of 1960s technology

5) instant off when powered down

6) most come with automatic circuitry shuttoff to protect against bright light

how much better is gen 2 than gen 1? i know gen 1 is not good in very dark conditions, and gen 2 is better, but how much better.
