Has anyone used a Nikon Monarch scope for NV add on, they seem to be a very good quality scope with side parallex adj at decent s/h prices.

I had a Nikon with front parallax but it wasn't great. It was ok. Sorry can't remember which one it was. I know it wasn't a monarch. It might have been a game king.

Cheers Gloop, my reason for asking is that the Monarch is supposed'ly one of their top end scopes Japanese lenses etc comparible with the likes of Bushnell elite spec and with the variable mag range that would suit NV add on, but of course it's all about suitability to NV use.

The Monarch E 2.5-10X56 I had was on the slightly better side of average for night vision use due to it's lens coatings.
The tool driving this vehicle is removed at night. Sometimes.

I'm not sure if this qualifies as help in this thread but if you are using a watec based home brew rig this is what you might expect to see if you use a 25mm 1/2" format lens on a 3 or 4 mag scope at air rifle ranges.
