I have looked through night vision scopes and goggles before, but never knew what gen i was looking through.  I would like a scope that i could use up to 100 yards away and still be able to identify what i'm looking at (human or animal).

what gen should i be looking at purchasing?  money is a factor, as i don't have much, but am willing to save a little more.

does anyone have pictures or a link that can compare the different gens when looking through them?

Stay away from Gen 1.

Gen II+ will work for your target distances. I would Recommend the D-440 for the Gen II+ Category. The Scope is a 3x with optional 6x doubler. Good price Tag


If you can save for a Gen III I would recommend it. Farther Target Recongnition. Better Light Amplification and longer tube life. For the Gen III category I would recommend the D-760.

Expect a $1500-$2000 jump from Gen II+ to Gen III

Run over to here. You will find images from various Gens and Units

thanks for the site Optik45, i could really see the distortion in the gen1 NV's.  the Gen2 looked a lot better.  I definitly will not get gen1.  As for gen3, i'll have to think about spending that much money.  We will see...

I would get the highest gen you can afford.
