This is a fantastic device. For tracking animals, day or night, it is exceptional. It has many uses. For home defense it gives you an edge with situational awareness. For animal lovers it provides great opportunities. My first night with it I spotted two elusive foxes on my property. You can't ask for a better first day with a new device. The screen clarity is good. The various viewing modes are good. The zoom is good, though past 4x zoom it is a bit pixalated. It's light weight and fits in your pocket. You can take it anywhere.
