Congratulations GaPrime. I just knew that was your pic. Looked just like S Georgia.

Mine too :lol: A buddy of mine has 2 set ups. Guns, optics, tripods, suppressors, etc he is in like $7500 per gun.

I run a Pulsar NV750 which is digital nv and it runs about $1000. Your good shooting to 150-175yds which is plenty for me.

No I have not but I watch the groups. Seems to be about a 50/50 chance you get a good one. I see a lot of people having issues with them. They require updates and all kinds of stuff. If your pretty techy it might not be bad but it sounds like a lot of headache.

While few of you were impressed, this is my favourite night photo to date. I've not been able to get another quite as nice.
I think it's magical that all those colors are actually there, if only our eyes could see them.
The moon was bright, hence the sharp sun-like shadows cast. Southern hemisphere, mid-March, end of summer. I set up the tripod, ISO800, 30sec exposure with a 2 second delay so the camera could settle after I'd pressed the button.
