    I'm with steeltiger. The 3x 75mm is where it's at. Oh, and if you have the 75 mm, do yourself a HUGE favor and get a Vortex Defender flip cap and replace that POS factory original objective lens cover. I've doen it on mine and my buddy's 75mm 640s and it is easily the best $19 I've ever spent in anything NV related.

    Great find! I was always hoping butler creek would make one that fits the 75mm. When did this happen? I've got my Zeus 75mm up for sale currently but if I end up keeping it I'm going to definitely get one of those Vortex caps.

    I can't fully respond to that because I'm yet to get my LTO. back order. I used it briefly at the DSC show. I loved it. The sig echo is a weapons sight and the LTO is a handheld scanner.

    Pulsar stuff mentioned as "new" in latest NRA flash emails,
    http://www.pulsarnv.com/cat=112&cid=...rmalRiflescope

    I like these product info emails a lot more than the life insurance and "double down on that life membership you have with our new Ultra membership with toys included" membership emails.

    Field reports? If so i humbly thank you for your efforts, as i am making another attemp at retiring from learning from my own foibles (fat chance).

    Follow up, I did convince the BIL to upgrade to the Zeus 75, split the cost and he's pretty impressed with the difference.

    the LTO can't even piss in the same pot as the echo1.

    Im not upset with the LTO because you get what you pay for, its just kind of stupid, they have a 6x zoom that makes an object you can't make out even less able to make out. I want to walk up to the engineer and just say "really?"

    also when you accidentally use said pointless zoom you have to zoom all the way to 6x before going back to 1x which is annoying

    in reference to "does it pick up heat" yes, 100%. I jerry rigged a paracord necklace for it, i wear it around my my neck, scan, pick up something and then switch to the echo. I am not upset i bought it, just annoyed with it.
