Recommendations for NV equipment

Postby gdavison » Tue Sep 06, 2016 6:23 am

Put it here in photography as it does not really fit in any other section

Looking for recommendations on makes/models for good quality NV either Binocular or Monocular for garden wildlife watching as the darker nights roll in .. As we have IR security cameras around the house we know we have loads of night time visitors as they get caught on camera every night. Plan would be to proactively look for them

Thanks for recommendations

I use a Cobra Nemesis NV monocular for scanning at night before either flicking on the lamp or if I'm alone, the Photon (dont like scanning with the Photon as its a fairly narrow field of view) I bought it off a member on here a good few years ago and it's still going strong. If your just using in the garden the onboard IR will be ample but out in the field I use a T38 IR torch and its good for a hundred yards and a bit more.
