    Default Dusk shooting

    I'd quite like to shoot in failing light and not complete dark and in need of nv. Any pointers on decent equipment to use that doesn't cost too much.ta .

    IMO 50mm bell is the ideal size as don't gain much being any bigger but if you still want more go for a 30mm tube

    Hey up,

    It depends on the type of shooting you're wanting to do, rabbiting or very close range ratting. If it's for rabbiting I would recommend the Nikko Stirling's I used the "Nghteater Eurohunter" 3-12 x 56 IR (centre cross illumnination) 30mm tube before I switched to NV. I paid 60.00 for mine but sold it when I couldn't focus down low enough for shed work. I think you'll find they're not in production now but 2nd hand ones pop up on the forums now and then. There are others in the Nikko Stirling range which are available.

    I used it mainly for ratting but not shed work (below 8-10 metres) and could see through it even in light where I couldn't see the rat clearly with the naked eye. It's one of the best scopes I've ever used while out lamping as well for rabbits.

    Whatever you choose I would go for one with a fairly big objective lens as Gunger has already said.

    Hope this helps
    Regards
