What's the scoop on magnification?

Magnification Made Easy

Cranking up the magnification in your night vision scope won't do you much good because the higher you crank it, the lower your light gain becomes. So, it's a wash at best.

Higher magnification may help you see smaller animals but it decreases the range of your scope. If you want, you can goose up the range by using an infrared illuminator. Some models of night vision scopes offer optional additional lenses that will increase the magnification and provide more flexibility.
