If you want 100% ID and the ability to increase your magnification upto 20-24x with the right torch/scope and the ability to not only see but take shots out to 400yds, I would get a Ward 800...

If you going down the thermal route a Trail XQ50 or Apex XQ50 LRF offer great features and performance for the money you pay, if you want a better image and more magnification look at Clives WT-75-3

Thanks for your input guys I haven’t managed to check out my helion xp50 at set distances to get an idea if trail would do the job.

Now no DP, then a WDV800l with Clive's Sunranger Ruby with a compatible scope such as a Sidewinder probably gives the best and most variable option now done digi wise. High magnification and on open fields hard not to like. Budget for complete setup £1,300 or so.
As said Pulsar's N series just isn't good enough over the Photon.

Thermal then its the WT1's. As you have a thermal spotter you can work out if its the technology you want to use as a scope. A bit Marmite, some love it some don't. Much bigger "ask" than as a spotter.

I think the problem is not being able to try them. That’s what happened with the photon 6x50 I bought and couldn’t get on with so sold it and as per normal took a hit on it.
