Had a 2-5-10 for a couple years, and it was a great night hunter. I only sold it, due to a patch of financial issues. Regarding the illuminated reticle, it was fine for under the feeder or glassing fields. The light gathering was also great.
Really, the biggest issue I've had with any illuminated reticle, for night use, is too much illumination. Some scopes don't dim enough, and there's a "bloom" around the lit reticle, impacting one's ability to see things around it. The effect is it makes a bit of a blind spot. I've never had a problem with an illuminated reticle not being bright enough for night use, but have had some that don;t get dim enough. Day use is a another issue... many illuminated reticles don't get bright enough for day use.
From my time with the AccuPoint, it's good for both day and night use. Only minor issue I had with mine was the triangle reticle. It was great, for fast target acquisition, but not as good as the dot, for precision work. It's a preference thing... both reticles are nice.
