The only difference in the pro is the IR.. In my eyes the yukon is crap for foxing...

 

It seems that's where the problem lies .

 

I know it sounds stupid but did you focus the units properly first? By this I mean with the small lever at the side of the occular lens. If this isn't set to suit your vision, then you'll not get a good image no matter what.

As I said before, the standard ranger should I.D Foxes to 200 yards in decent conditions. The pro can pick them out at 500+ yards (again in ideal conditions). The difference between the two models is that the pro not only has a more powerful Illuminator, but also a more advanced CCD.

I know how to work the units, Both Ranger and Pro. As stated before i've used a few and even used the older "Better models" I'm aware of both differences on both units, but i still think theres really no noticeable difference from Normal to Pro apart from the pro bein that little bit sharper..

 

you show me a Fox at 500+ yards that i can clearly identify as i dont think its possible... Maybe i dont have a problem with my unit, or others i've viewed... It may be that your unit and a few others are one of a kind???

Well i must be lucky then cos i have had the old ranger with the lever on the eye piece and i got the newer one and both have spotted Foxes at 200 plus yards .

Mine's an old model too, and as I've said in ideal conditions Foxes are identifiable at 500+ yards.

 

Everyone who's used digital N.V will know that it takes a bit of getting used to, and this debate has made me wonder whether some people's eyes are maybe more adaptable to coping with digital N.V images.

I wont disagree that the older units are better than the current ones. I've tested older units and you can see a clear differens to the newer unit.. I think the CCD has been changed thats cheaper = more profit. I'm arguing my point as the owner of a newer unit that i add has been returned to Thomas Jacks twice, and replaced with two different units..

yukon ranger is what you want second hand around £180-£200 ish maybe a bit cheaper but your going to need a decent laser illuminator to get out to foxing distance, an N1000 £120 ish will do 200 yards as already stated but i had a dipol L2 £200 ish sat underneath mine and with some tweaking i used to get out to 300 yards (measured) with ease on a clear night
