And the winner so far from my other thread is..............Night Vision Binoculars da ra!

Been googling them and my head is puggled. Can anyone recommend a good pair in a middling price range (a coupla hundred probably). Personal recommendations would be better than reviews, I've read a load of those and conflicting info. Would be used for odserving wildlife primarily I imagine. Or would night vision minocular be better?

The Lidl's ones are widely used by Tim's bushcraft buddies and they are under 100. Meant to be as good as the ones for several hundred pounds odd. Otherwise you are looking at 1000 odd.

it comes down to what you want them for ?

the cheaper lot are all 1st generation ones.

and are not to bad for walking at night but try for
2nd generation (bit more pricey but worth it.

as for the newer models where on 4th generation now and they start of at about 1400 quid. (but are bloody awesome)

Good set

might be able to shop around for them.

but best bet is hit a forum or 2 and just look around for advice

Feeblecat what do you want to do with them? I bought some years ago, they were useless, new models may be much better. I go out on a bright night to watch wildlife. Badgers can be watched during the summer months during daylight. I also watched them using a torch.

Ahh, a rethink may be required - just when I thought I had it in the bag! I am being put off this idea - i'm happy to spend a few hundred quid for the right thing but not to throw my money away on something useless.

Back to my original thread then on gadget/pressie ideas!
