I would be happy with 8x. I wonder if it will hold zero better than the drone?

I'm certain Clive looked at the drones weak points and built on them, hopefully the image is comparable to the drone and is able to deal with the IR like the drone can.

Just put it on the rifle this afternoon (Steyr Prohunter, with a MAK steel rail). Very solid lock up but had to move it forward a bit to clear the bolt lift, bit of a stretch forward now like it was with the DP and had to remove all the but spacers, but should be okay, sits high at 3.25" above the bore. Hoping to zero over the weekend.

This must be the most eagerly awaited review of a product since the first iphone came out to rival Nokia :D

All zeroed now at 75yds and should give me 200yds as well, and only climbs to +1" at 150yds (243 Sierra 85gr HPBT @ 3150fps).
Bit tricky in the sunlight and had to wait for some cloud cover to see the targets, black circle`s show up better than blue. looks like click are true 1cm at 100m.
Trying it tonight with various IR`s but looks like there will be plenty of moon and clear sky.

Very bright last night with a full moon and could have shot rabbits at 70 ish yards without any IR, if you were`nt worried about headshots.
So bearing in mind the ambient light, initially I have found that it gives a greyish, but very crisp image, from memory I would say the DP had more contrast. IR wise it seemed to prefer the Solaris SRX on full flood, even up to 300 ish yds, spot is way to much for it.
Need to lose the moon now to see if I can get better contrast with IR.

The full moon will have been responsible for some if not all of the loss of performance.
I was out last night with Colin G off here, i looked through his Drone Pro 10x with his good example of Dragonfly, that picture quality was well down last night. -------------is there only you that's received the digiceptor or has a few been released ie are the orders starting to be delivered now ?

Yes it has and must admit I have already indicated to Clive that I may return it as I already have a CRS rangefinder, and leaving it on the Digiceptor does impede fitting all my rifles in the cabinet, but last night, and again it could be due to the moonlight, I really struggled to pick up the laser splash from the CRS.
