Sorry man but the reality is any "low cost" nightvision piece is going to give you poor results unless your ok with scanning directly in front of your face on most nights. hehe.
I have 3 thermals as well as the Sitemark Photon...plus (2) $250 nightvision monoculars. The monoculars are good for 50 yards without a moon and "maybe" 100 yards with a full moon. If you are sitting in a blind and looking for game at a feeder within 100 yards, they will do just fine. Driving around and scanning property and they are not worth a bag of peanuts.
The Sitemark is great for the money and i use it primarily for my kids when they go sit in the blind. There is no replacement for thermals for finding game quickly and accurately...although at a cost of course.
Good luck in your quest!
There's nothing better than killin it and grillin it!
