Day & night digital riflescopes Yukon Photon XT are entering the market as an upgraded replacement of the well-selling Photon 5x42 model. As compared with the Photon 5x42, the Photon XT features crucial improvements which embrace both: advanced components (CMOS sensor, high resolution display, enhanced lens and eyepiece) and new functions.
Among them – an electronic aiming reticle. The previous model had a fixed shape reticle similar in design to that of a regular optical sight: the reticle needed power from a separate battery; and windage/elevation adjustments were made with regular turrets. The new Photon XT uses an electronic reticle instead of a mechanical one which gives a number of benefits. For example, the user can switch between six preloaded reticle shapes and select one of the reticle colors. Windage/elevation adjustments are electronic too.
Thanks to the controller wheel and elaborate software, the Photon XT is really easy to use. The riflescopes feature light weight - max. 720 g with installed batteries. Another important advantage of the Photon XT is its ability to be mounted on various types of hunting weapons using standard 30 mm rings.
