I love mine Phill and if you want to extend the distance, just add a separate T20 or Tracer ir which can be a great advantage.

Took it out last night for a trial run, bit strange looking through a screen, I had the screen brightness on low and altering the IR brightness as I looked around, I didnt want to buy the wolf an Xtra £200 when I can use a t20 for Xtra distance for a quarter the price, still found it hard getting within range of the little blighters tho, but I did found out last night that there are another two or three lads that go on there aswell, guessing that's why their a bugger to get close too.... But enjoyed it tho but as you,s mentioned maybe a optional IR torch....

I prefer the screen type kit because putting my eye to an NV scop makes me feel dizzy.

 

Turning the screen down is a good idea but, when you're out in the dark, it can still light up a white face. I use either a black wooly hat or baseball cap pulled down low and, some scrim pulled up over my nose.

 

Also, the rabbits can get used to the red glow from the IR, especially when it's pointed directly at them. Try keeping them right on the edge of the screen while you stalk in.

 

An extra IR torch, something like a T20, is excellent for extending the spotting range on a Viper :thumbs:

If I had the dosh, it would be the Wolf R-Tec for me to have greater distance and total control of screen brightness without affecting ir power but not cheap, perhaps one day :hmm:

I had a hat on and a scrim over my nose because the wife said my face lit up when I turned it on, because I've tried lamping with a red torch which scared the rabbits off I went for the dark ops viper and there is very little glow tbh, but a strong torch will no doubt give off more glow....

Ah, the Dark Op's Viper then Phill, you are the first person I know to get one so I will be very interested to see what sort of distance it will reach and not just eye shine. I know the 850 nanometer has always had a better beam than the 940 nanometer light source so I will be most interested to hear how you go on with it matey.

If I go for a t20 ir torch or similar it will have to be the 940nm and not the 850 am I right in thinking that?

Now their is a point Phil because 850nan is what is known as 'visible red' whereas 940nan is very very low visible end of the red spectrum. You would have to test it to see if the camera works with a standard 850nan light, I have a feeling whilst both are infra red, the wavelength may not allow a good image or even it blowing the image all together.

I would make a quick phone call to Nitesite, I have found them to be very helpful on queries I have put to them.

Perhaps a post on the 'Night vision forum' could be a good move or ask IanB on the 'Optics section of sporting guns.

TBH Phill I would go for the 940nm IR torch because of the lower red  light output, thats the reason  why I went down that road in the first place... They seem to be lamp shy rabbits.... 😜

How easy is it to get a 940 nan torch Phill.
