Well I finally got round to taking the plunge and converted my 6.5 x 50 xt to an extreme and wow the picture is amazing not to mention I can now make it roughly x18 mag for my big bore rifle when foxing well worth looking in to if you want more from the photon.

That's a 50 mm lens so it's about the same mag but a much clearer image the 135 mm lens is the 18x mag one just swap them over when it goes on the 22/250

How far out see you spot a fox? What size rifle you got it on?

The pic is of it on my air rifle for rats and bunnys but when I shoot foxes it will be on a 22/250 with a 135mm lens screwed on which gives 18x mag it will see as well as your add on ir will

I got the adapter made for me off a night vision fb group that was £15 then I splashed out on the Carl zeiss lens and spent £25
