Re: Any advice on what night vision scope to buy.

I have a D760 and can see pigs, coyote and deer out to 700 yards on a night lighted only by stars. These are in dirt roads, so there is a good background. None of the night vision is inexpensive! ! !

I have the illuminator, but it is not used much. It does shine eyes a long way out, more than 700 yards. If you use it in much cover, it lights up the cover so bright it makes it hard to see details of animals in the cover. You can still eyes though.

I use it for pigs.

Re: Any advice on what night vision scope to buy.

I purchased mine from Optics HQ and had good service. I did not pay the extra money for the hand select option. My understandig is that with the hand select you get a cleaner lense system so that there are almost no spots when looking through the scope. Mine has 1 small spot that is noticable, but not a problem for me.

I think the D-740 would work just fine and it is a little smaller peice of equipment. Here is a link for comparrison.

Night Vision Forum at Nightvisionforums.com • View topic - D760 and D740 at a 1000! PICS

You will relly like the performance of the D-740.

I think you would get some good training in night trailing.
I guess it could work most of the time, but I like these animals to be DRT. Once they are out of sight it is hard to guess which way they went. Maybe it works with light bullets!
