The sales person said that it probably would not be what my husband wanted, but I just could not afford to pay $700 or above for the so called "really good" ones. My husband only wanted something to see if the feral hogs were out in our back pasture or if the coyotes were in with our calves. This particular brand has met his needs very well and he is very pleased with his gift. I can tell because he uses it every night. You can see every thing for about the length of a football field perfectly. Thanks

I ordered a different, more expencive night vision and was very excited about it because the reviews all said it was good. When I got it I was very disappointed. It was crud. I returned it and had gave up on night vision. A friend of mine told me about his nightfall so I ordered one and WOW what a difference. It works good up to 100 yds on a really dark night and a little further with some moon light. I wanted it to hog hunt but I like to use it to see what the dogs are barking at without using

I bought this to mount it on my Leupold 4.4-14x50 and bought one of those scope mounting systems. This thing goes right on to your scope so no need to worry about extended rail. Holds it nice and tight. It also comes with Infrared illuminator which definitely makes things nicer. I bought it for coyotes up in Oregon and really like the option of being able to switch from day scope to a night vision scope with this. Ordered it on the 15th and received the unit on the 19th.

Great Clip on system
This item is everything that I expected. It works great in low light, but extremely well under full moon. I have not needed to use the I.R that came with it yet. I can see things clearly at over 300 yards with no problem.
I purchased after research of gen.1 night vision options. I am glad I made the purchase. I had trouble at first using this unit, but after a little time learning the ins and outs I am glade I made this choice. The vision is very clear at around 20 30 yards I can see the bark on trees and the wood grain on my fence. At around 500 yards the vision is clear with no trouble seeing objects. With the digital on I have used it in very low light and total darkness inside my house and it works
... read more great. It does require focusing but after practice this is an easy task.
I would recommend the construction is rugged and I feel it is built to last.
One note: don't get frustrated in the beginning as with many things you are not familiar with it requires a little learning, but after that they work great.
