... yes the light is still on in the house of digital night vision.

No it isn’t as sexy as thermal

No it’s not as cheap as red or green lights on the rifle or under the feeder

But for those who have been using Digisights , X-Sights , Photons , and Wraiths you may be interested in the latest news and features of Pulsar’s latest release:

I’ll post some videos here that I’ve been working on in my spare time in between rain showers and Covid-19 restrictions ....

My initial thoughts are as follows:

Pros:

Cheaper than thermal
More useful than red/green lights
Rechargeable internal and external battery options
High recoil / Shock resistance rating and performance

Con:

The zeroing menu and adjustments can be a bit daunting - for instance if you zero at 16x magnification the adjustments are in .25 increments whereas if you zero at base 4x the values are in 1.0 units. If you zero from both magnifications then you end up with whole and fractional values with no real way to easily get back to them if you update the scope or start over.

The image clarity - in daytime it is rough - after using a Wraith I’ve become a bit spoiled by daytime color images.

The focus ring - way too tight

As I said, haven’t been able to get away at night without snorkels and fins so I’ll update on night time performance and post more videos as the days go on.

All in all not a bad product and value for the dollar.

Interesting! So the only weak link under high recoil is the lens cap flipping open?

From a pure functionality standpoint - that’s the only issue and it is easily remedied with some tape or adhesive strap (velcro).

I get why the daytime cover is there - folks have been homebrewing caps for years to increase clarity in daytime.

I hope to get the night time footage next week
