I bought an atn last jan, had nothing but problems with it and returned to cabelas with all the threads from here about what had transpired.
posted on amazon about what problems we were having and how we basically got screwed by atn/reps.
fast forward to about 6 weeks ago, I got a call from a new atn rep. we talked and they sent me a new scope free of charge to make amends. loaded with the .343 firmware, mounted to my windham vex, sighted in easy, holds reticle in center now and seems to be working as it is supposed to. they as much as admitted to me they screwed up with all the bs goodies (gps, speedo etc.) and have the basics working to my satisfaction.
since I manage a hunting property and wanted a way to record hunts for my hunters the xsight fit the bill and now seems to be working well.
from all my research (before and after the first atn) the sightmark photon 4.6 is a good entry level night vision as well but you have to buy extras to match the atn (dvr). also seems to not be as good a day scope as the atn (atn is color screen as well and photon is not).
for night shots either would work for ya it is the other stuff you need to figure out which works best for your app.
