Sytong ht66
« on: August 17, 2022, 01:23:22 pm »
Been tossing up weather to venture into night vision for a while now and finally decided to give it a try. A package turned up to work this morning and there it was. First impressions are it looks well made and its light but doesnt feel like a toy. I ordered another adaptor as well so it covers most of our rifles. Just need to read up instrutions figure out which rifle is going to wear it and get back here with what we found...

Had a quick play last night. Looking around the back yard worked well. The menu is easy to use. In day mode there are a couple of neat things in the display, a couple of angle meters one for cant and one for uphill/downhill as well as battery charge state. Its handy that you can scan with it without having to attach it to your scope..

So ive had it in the back yard using it by itself looking at stuff in the dark and it appears to work really well. Mind you i dont own anything else like this to compare it to. Mounts to a couple of rifles well and is nice and clear when combined with a scope. Menu is easy to navigate although not quite sure what a couple of settings actually do...

Been mounting this to a couple of rifles. They give you some insulation tape on the kit to put around the eye bell if its to small for the adaptor to fit on. I dont really want to put tape on my scopes so what Ive found works is cutting a piece of pushbike inner tube and putting that on the eye bell instead, you can even double it up etc if need be...

Had it out possum shooting tonight. It takes a bit of getting used to as its like shooting using a camera which is what it is. It seemed to go well but ive never used anything like this before to compare it to. You need to give it time to focus and it gets a bit grainy on distant objects.
