You have three problems here..

1. The Nite Site Dark Ops version is 940NM in the IR spectrum which means its not visible to the eye at all human/animal , the problem being the beam doesn't throw anywhere near as far because of it being 940NM, the standard version is better and cheaper.

2. Nightforce scopes are not good for add on night vision, you would be much better off with the likes of a Hawke Sidewinder or MTC range, the difference in the amount of IR light passed through the glass due to less coatings is VERY noticeable .

3. You bought a Nitesite

Did you buy it from Scottcountry?   Sounds like the vendor could have been more helpful.

My experience with them is that they are good at selling,  but not so hot on the customer support, so box clever.

Hello Main Man,ref one of my posts,more expensive lenses have coating on them that can reduce IR wave lengths getting through that is true in IMO I had a variety of scopes and the one that worked best was a £40 Richer Scope  the lenses were virtually wiped clean of original coatings ,also the more visible to the human IR you filter out the less distance you get,at 950nm you can still see but at a reduced level the dull red glow 840nm gives you the better distance but also a bigger dull red glow.P/S I got on very well with the Night-site Wolf but decided to to thermal because of the dull red glow from the IR IMO its always there.

Hi and thankyou all! im going to get a cheaper scope i think and stay with the eagle, reason is my pal has a wolf and its really good so im hoping with a lesser grade scope i might see a big differnce, just wish i could of done some homework first but thats my fault. shame really because the niteforce i use is well suited for me being a bit ruff and ready. thanks again chris

I did the same bought an expensive scope to go with the Wolf I had found cheaper better, another mistake I made was I need to use glasses for reading and found to see the screen clearly I needed to were my glasses,some people find the Nitesight World Eagle light Mamite you either love them or hate then I liked  them but because of the ir issue move to thermal,you got a good bit of kit get the set up right and you will have loads of fun using it there good on to rimy  and perfect for ratting with air rifle.P/s a must have get a scope with parrelax a just on it.

      Friday night thought i,d have a pre pheasant delivery fox mooch .Pardnv 007 on a Hawke Vantage 3-12x50 on top of a cz452 in,22.l/r but with CCI segs in for mr charles .
      Also my spanish pal wanted some bunnies for the b,b,q <his fault the weather,s gone pooh>so the segs  do both ,set off about 10.30pm in squalid dirty patchy fog but i thought helps me to hide and the thermal spotter keeps mr charles in view .4 frustrating hours later old charley boy is a no show so back to the car i stomp.
      Suddenly a suicidal rabbit just pops up from his hole and stares at this big lump in the fog ,well at 10yds even this blind old blinker couldnt miss ,the Pard,s clear unfuzzy picture is sweet and no 1 is bagged after gutting . A nice size buck <meal for 2 > carry on plodding .
      Across the meadow towards the gate a small blobb is being chased by a horny blobb so i put the rifle up and the doe is no 2 for the bbq .Gutted and bagged back to the car i trots.
      Wish id got this sooner its far superior to Photon and sony camera or hawkes own monocular for image quality and range atb and good hunting

      went out last nite at 8.30 , the wind was very favorable blowing down the wood line strate into my face , I put out 3 tins of dog meat , with mixer , and some chicken wings at 150 yards from the truck , had the .223 sat on bean bags on the bonnet, loaded and safety on 
      got back in the truck, with the passenger window down, looking out thro with the nite spotter, 
      the fist one came along after about 10 minutes, I shouted at it but I don't think it heard me as it just kept munching away , I waited till it was head on and took the shot in the bib (bottom fox)'
      it hit the deck , game over , 
      i was going to retrieve it , but then thought that I had read somewhere that leaving a shot fox is some times not a bad thing to do , as it doesn't stop other foxes in the area from coming in 
      so it was left where it lay , 
      i thought nothing will be about for a while now so out came the flask , I'd just poured out the tea 
      and had a quick scan , fuc me there was number 2 munching away on the free dinner, l knock the tea over , burning my bleeding leg getting out the truck , and swearing like a good un 
      thinking after all the noise I've made its bound to have buggerd off , 
      finally got behind the gun turned on the n870 , still swearing to my self I looked tho the unit , and to my amazement it's still there with no idea that I'm there to,  must like them chicken wings 
      same again waited till I was able to get a bib shot , and with in a minute a 55g vmax found the spot . 
      After all this commotion, I ragged up and went home , a happy man with a burnt leg 
      as I type this I'm in bed , bandaged up , and the wife waiting on me , which is very rare ! 
      Roll on the windy nite , and no friggin tea , the two don't mix 
      happy hunting lads
