Pulsar N355

Post by blueroll » 29 May 2018, 10:36

I had a look through a mate`s N355 yesterday/night.
Not bad in my opinion and lighter, more compact than the 10x Dronepro. Much larger FOV due to the lower base mag but not as crisp as the DP in daylight and wandered whether that could be improved if they incorporated a red filter in the lens cover like the DP ?

Just a point.
I have a Pulsar N870 LRF, and I have found that when zeroing during daylight at the range,
I use a lens cap with a 10mm hole, which is covered with a piece of red filter.
Certainly cleans up the image. :thumbup:

Drones are easy to zero in the daylight with or without filter, MK1 or MK2. Pulsars are awful and the one shot zero you need to be creative when you struggle to see the target never mind a bullet hole in any sort of brightness. If a filter improves things I don't see why they wouldn't incorporate it as standard given the low cost and how bad they are in daylight.

I have been informed that an IR cut filter may improve the daylight image, but surely if that was the case Pulsar would have incorporated that in the lens cap ????

You would have thought so given their price and how little it would cost.

The N355 has a freeze option when zeroing which makes it so much easier.
Adjust the contrast and brightness during daylight with the lens cap down and you will not have an issue.
There seems to be a lot of negative remarks on here from none N355 owners, I love mine on my .223, .22lr and .20 air rifle.

I did mess about with the various colour options and it can improve the definition slightly, but it would have been so simple (assuming that it uses the same sensor/camera as the Dronepro) to just forget about the colour options and incorporate the same filter as the DP in the lens cover.

An update.
I have obtained a small UV/cut IR filter and by just covering the hole in the lens cap it does seem to sharpen up the daytime image slightly, now waiting for Thomas Jacks to get replacement caps in so I can experiment with a more permanent fit and keep the original standard.
On another note for owners, I have bonded a short rail to an IPS10 batt, which allows for a top mounted IR lamp (offset mount) and use the side rail for the customriflescopes LRF. It works a treat with a bit of shimming to get the laser splash into the sight picture near the centred ret.
