Review by Philip Atkinson

The delivery time was less than 48 hours. The quality of the monocular and particularly the optics is good. I didn t know what to expect from a Gen 1 tube and I have been impressed with its performance. The initial focusing of the eyepiece took a little trial and error but gIves a good image once set correctly.
In almost complete darkness cloudy night in countryside a few miles from nearest town it is possible to see objects and wildlife which are completely invisible to the naked eye. Also the 4 x magnification is good for viewing wildlife or distant objects which is why I bought them. There is some spherical aberation around the perimeter of the image which I ve read is normal for a Gen 1 set but the centre 85 area gives a good clear image.
The built in IR illuminator is much better than I d expected giving a beam out to 80 to 100metres and making everything very bright out to about 60 -70 metres. I ve also bought a separate 850nm floodlight £17 off ebay which gives amazing illumination.
Overall I m these are a great addition to any night time outdoors activityand for this price £157 are a bargain.
