I fail to understand what you mean? Second clause from your link:

Re: Pulsar n450 vs ENV 10

Problem with Sightline and VCSEL is not the power per se, but FOV vs. illuminator beam. Best results would be with either illuminator that can evenly fill the FOV (no dark spot in the middle) or if you need the IR not reflect on some vegetation etc. the power would have to be suitably low so that il...

Re: Pulsar n450 vs ENV 10

This is my pet peeve since IMHO people are overly in love with Pard and tend to be blind for negative sides. With these non-sensitive units (be it Pard or other manufacturer) you're throwing insane amounts of IR at the target and surroundings and the usability is very severely limited without IR or ...

Re: where to start ?

If you can get Pulsar and Yukon, maybe soon also Yukon Sightline N47x series (N470 is 850nm and N475 940nm). It would be better than the ones you mention, but needs or at least greatly benefits from external illuminator at the longer distances. So does Pard NV008, which is less covert but maybe bett...

In the first post he states 800m over valley to view deers so I'd rather get the best illuminator possible...

Re: Newbie. Which spotter

Only 850nm VCSEL lasers get you over 200m with Pard.

Sirius XTL throws the most distance, other options are Solaris SRX and Black Sun Dark Engine.

Re: Newbie. Which spotter

At distances IR illuminator cannot reach you'd be better off with traditional optics for lowlight hunting. Like quality 8x56 binos. Even older spotters (of the type now discussed) before this HD hype do not compare favorably. And HD needs more and more light. If using digital spotter, you may want t...

Re: Hello everyone !

I get you're trying to see the bullet holes? I'd say it's the camera resolution not the lens. Of course lens with more magnification gives you more detail but it's not sharper it's just bigger with less FOV. I presume you're using the flip cap or adjustable iris turned way close in the daytime. And ...

Re: Hello everyone !

Welcome! If you're talking about upgrading the lens in XT I would think twice. If you're having problems with quality of sight picture try more powerful illuminator first. I'd say LED torch is the way to go for you (range and Photon sensitivity). Attach to main tube not the provided flimsy mount. If...

Re: PRIMOS 2 POINT GUN REST

With trigger sticks you're holding the (stick) pistol grip with your support hand.

So after shot, when you go for bolt (for the reload) there's nothing but good will holding the rifle.
