Aside from the image issues, the product does seem to be well constructed. I hope to update the review with some better news once I get the replacement.
**Replacement update** 10/25/2011
The replacement item was received from Amazon as part of a seamless exchange. The product has thus far exceeded my expectations. What you do have to be careful with is the focus adjustment on the front lens. The part of the lens that is supposed to focus is tightly screwed in from the factory which predisposes you to back off the other two sets of threads that hold on to the front assembly. Once you get the focus sorted, the image quality is spot on. From a distance of 15 yards I could make out the grain pattern of the wood swing set.
For the price, it does the job.
Working with several devices including the outstanding Yukon NVMT scopes and coveted iGen from Night Owl, I must say the Bushnell 2 x 28mm Equinox boasts a slight, but noticable edge on clarity compared to any of the Gen 1 devices I have used. The unit also produces above average brightness (for Gen 1) and productes a sharper image than many other offerings and is ruggedly built to boot. The optics are excellent as the coating on the lenses minimizes distracting flare and contribute to excellent clarity, contrast and sharpness taking Gen 1 technology a bit further than Bushnell's previous models. Based on the rugged build quality and IPX4 level waterproofing, selection of tube (minimal black spots) and appealing optically clear image quality - I would highly recommend this particular model to be at or near the top of your list.
I personally have minimal gripes about the Equinox 2 x 28, but nevertheless no review would be honest without mentioning these. I find the objective lens cap (front lens) to be far deeper than necessary, hence you have to wrestle a bit to pull it off the front of the scope which is not only a bit of a hassle, but could potentially put a strain on the lens connection to the body. Thankfully, this can be avoided by simply placing the cap 1/3 of the way down when replacing it after use, thus making it much easier to remove. Secondly (and this is really minor), the ocular lens (eyepiece) moves easily during mere handling of the scope so it may need to be readjusted often upon use.Read more ›
The illumination on the monocular works fine for my purpose and the magnification is good for medium range viewing. I would recommend this any one looking for night vision on a budget without sacrificing quality!
Wish it had a tripod mount tho..
Very operator friendly. The built in IR illuminator is very good compared to most other
monocular IR that is built in......
