    Video: Sytong ht 66 vs some rabbits

    Seeing as there has been a fair bit of interest in night vision stuff lately I thought I'd do a bit of a quick video. Bit clearer what you see through the scope but you get the idea.

    It is just a cheap AR 223 scope I picked up off this forum. It does seem to be a lot more clear when I mounted the IR torch on the barrel like I did this night vs having it above the scope. Must reflect off the suppressor a bit.

    @TLB great wee video

    What do you think of the unit overall for night time hunting?

    I'm thinking of getting the HT 66 for clipping onto a .22 or .17 HMR primarily for bunnies out to 150 mtrs tops or to just go for a HT 60

    What are your thoughts?

    I had one of the ht 66 and an ht 660, before them I had a pard 008 lrf which I just recently sold.
    The pard 008 is similar to the ht 60. I liked it but found switching it between multiple rifles, the .22, .17 and .223 tiresome with the constant need for a rezero. Good lightweight units but also with that high base magnification it was quite difficult to aquire targets quickly. Certainly if it was to stay on one rifle it would be fine. The rangefinder is really handy on the rangefinder models. I would always go with the 850nm illuminator as the 940 is really not enough.
    The ht 660 has a mount for an external IR whereas the ht 66 you use the inbuilt one which I found not adequate for what I do as I need a little more range. Scopes with adjustable parallax are a must and side focus is ideal.
