After squeezing off a single test shot simply place the onscreen cursor over the impact point, re-aim at the intended target point and digitally lock in your zero with the press of a button. It couldn't be easier.

Pulsar Trail Wi-Fi Enabled Thermal Imaging Hunting Scope

We can hear what you're thinking... almost three grand for a hunting scope?  Are we crazy? Well maybe, but consider the following real-life scenario:

Scanning the horizon with your newly mounted Pulsar Trail Wi-Fi Enabled XQ30 Thermal Hunting Scope you catch sight of a distant thermal signature. Zooming to 15.2-power confirms that it’s a wild boar.  Game on!

The scope’s stadiametric rangefinder calculates range to be 500 yards. From a menu of previously saved ballistic trajectories you digitally lock in the scope's zero profile for that distance. Tall grass behind the boar makes it tough to see, but not a problem -  a quick switch to “Forest” mode dramatically improves your Trail's contrast.

Target locked, safety off, three deep breaths, exhale... squeeze!  And because your Trail is paired to that iOS or Android phone that's in your pocket you’ve just livestreamed the entire session to YouTube and saved it to video thanks to the scope's recoil activated software.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we've unreservably placed the Pulsar Trail Wi-Fi Enabled XQ30 on our 2017 Top Pick List for Thermal Hunting Scopes under $2,999.

Whether you go with the Pulsar Forward F135 or the slightly more expensive F155, both are powered by SONY Ultrahigh-Sensitivity CCDs that render exceptionally high resolution 50 lp/mm night vision images to a brilliant frost-free AMOLED screen.  And did we happen to mention that you can pair them to iOS or Android phones and tablets to use them as remote monitors and enable real-time video streaming and data transfer?

Shockproof to 6000 joules these rugged performers are waterproof to the point of being submersable. Features include 16Gb of memory, a removable ultracovert 940nm infrared illuminator, wireless remote control, rechargeable 16-hour Li-Ion battery and a spectacular 3-year warranty.

No doubt about it, Pulsar's Forward, Wi-Fi Enabled Digital Clip-On Night Vision Attachments were an easy choice for our 2017 Top Pick for Digital Clip-On Night Scopes under $999.

2017 Top Pick. A Fun Vision Night Scope for under $249! 0

Sightmark Twilight 7x50 Digital Night Vision Scope

Though we list several good night vision scopes that are priced under $249, we think that Sightmark's Twilight 7x50 Digital Night Vision Scope deserves our Top Pick nod for a number of reasons.

First and foremost would be the Twilight's impressive 7-power glass lens set. In combination with a 36 lp/mm Sony CCD sensor this digital scope delivers night vision ranges of up to 200 yards.  Connected to a videocam or digital recorder you can readily record your viewing sessions.

And unlike traditionally tubed Generation 1+ scopes which can be damaged by accidental exposure to bright light, Twilight's digital core could care less... this is a high magnification scope that can be used both day and night.

Great night vision that's tough to break and fun to use... that's the Twilight 7x50 Digital Night Vision Scope in a nutshell.  Reason enough to make it our Top Pick for a fun night vision gift under $249!
