Hey ya'll, I'm a regular on the hog hunting forum but I'm posting here to hopefully help somebody out just like someone helped me... Well, I've done a ton of research on Thermal Monoculars and I finally bit the bullet on the Pulsar Quantum Lite XQ23V. I hunt hogs every night of the week on my property in East Texas and my left arm looks like Popeye and my right arm looks like Olive Oil from holding up my rifle for 2 to 3 hours a night. Finally splurged a little on a new hunting toy that's going to make my life much easier. Here is my field review of the Pulsar Monocular. I've done a ton of research so maybe you won't have to...

Excellent review. You were very thorough. It's one of the monoculars I'm considering.

Thanks!

Thank you very much! I really appreciate to positive comment... really at the end of the day it came down to the Pulsar name. I love their scopes and knew that anything with the Pulsar name on it would be great quality.

Great job buddy. The XQ23 is amazing for the price. Beats last years unit that ran 2500.

Also, make sure you look into getting a DNV battery pack insert. Give you a rechargeable battery for it internally.

I have an ultimate night vision mdvr and cable looks almost like an RCA plug. I can get more details on the cable when I get home and look at it..

Those are very short cables which would work if the thermal is attached to a rifle. When it is handheld and used a spotting device, it doesn't provide much distance to run the cable to a mini-DVR located in a backpack or chestpack.

So where do you locate the mni-DVR?

Quick and easy is just to velcro it to the side. Alternatively there are some guys selling mounts on ebay to allow you to helmet mount the monocular. I have a pouch/cable on my helmet if I need to record out of the monocular.



Search on "hd19 helmet"

I'm confident you would not want a cable long enough to go from your hand to your back or even your chest for that matter.
