Reply To: Planning to buy night vision. Need some advice
I’ve not used the Photon, but I do have the NiteSite Wolf (next step up from the Viper) and love it.
Benefit of any of the NiteSite units is that you can use them with any air rifle/firearm that has a scope and you don’t need to swap scopes and zero again. This can be a huge advantage if you have limited time to prepare (such as seeing a skunk grubbing in the yard or a rat raiding the chicken feed) as installation takes less than 60 seconds and you’re ready to go.
On the downside of the NiteSite units is that you have to shoot from a heads up position. This also means you’ll need some sort of support in most cases, especially if you have to adjust parallax for the shot. It can take a bit to get used to this, but once you have everything figured out it becomes second nature. I’ve some videos on my YouTube channel concerning the NiteSite. Search for “Wildlife Control Training Company” and you’ll see one called Yard Invaders that deals with raccoon and skunks along with a Play List just for the NiteSite.
