With a good FFP reticle (#1, #4, #8) it isn't necessarily needed but if you want to get one, make sure it is:
a) simple dot
b) adjustable to be very dim
Otherwise the light will overpower the view and you will see nothing but the lighted reticle. Many lighted reticles out there are not suited for moonlight hunting.
