The 550 is a great bit of kit. Its ok as a day scope but it certainly would not be my first choice.

Come night and its a diferent matter. Its a good clear image, i have never suffered with it being grainy and i can see a couple of hundred yards with the built in ir. but the 940 does make a diference.

I cant fault the image one bit.

There are a couple of niggles i have, one is the height of the unit. Its not a comfortable prone shooting position, unless you have a neck like an ostrich. You may find you need to pack up your cheek piece. Not over bad but you do notice.

The other is the manual dial zoom. I think its located in an awkward position.

Superb for the money though.

Yes its got a zoom. I havent done much long range shooting with mine yet, mainly close ratting but you find yourself altering it as your wandering about.

You can also get a doubler lens to increase the viewing range.

i use one of these, it does the job and uses a micro sd card or built in memory..

use the best ir you can afford, i have just bought a night master 800..and the picture quality has doubled
