What make model have you gone for?

The digital thermal are becoming very popular here in the U.K. But by far and large the Drone Pro digital NV scope appears to offer the best performance per £.

I definitely want a thermal scope, sadly I just wouldn't use it enough to warrant buying one. :oops:

I've got one of them, good little thing you will be happy with it, although I wish I bought the 4.6x rather then the 6.5x.
Smaller, lighter and of more use at close range bunnies, the 6.5 is a bit to powerful out to the 1st 25m or so.

I have a 6.5 photon and use a doubler on it for fox.

One thing I would recommend getting is a secondary IR torch. Firstly to save the battery life on the scope and secondly for a better quality cleaner illumination.

I only shoot mine to 50m so it's got plenty of built-in illumination for my needs, as it's clear out at 85m. I could easily hit a pig at 100-125m.

Does it give you extra range with upgraded torch?
I have a photon RT 4,5x42 with 940nm IR led.
Was thinking of upgrading the IR with a pulsar ir al 915 lazer. Any opinion?
