I'm surprised that you don't see more fur fly.

I used to use a ATN X-Sight II, and I saw a lot of stuff on the video that you don't get to see without it.

I have an Omega compressor. If you're a fellow Guild member, and you pass through Roswell, NM, I'll fill your portable tank as a courtesy.

Is that the 4k variant?

No it isn't. I haven't made the jump to the new 4K one. ATN is known for not writing very good code. I think it took them about 4 years to iron out most of the bugs for the X-SIght II. They still haven't addressed the most egregious ones (although the scope works fairly well if you don't use the ballistics program). Instead, they bring out a new model, leaving all of the retailers with unsellable on-hand stock!

I purchased a decent Sight Mark without video, which runs circles around the X-Sight II. I don't miss the video to be honest about it. You've all but made a living making videos, but for me, once the newness wore off, I got a more or less ho hum attitude about it. Part of the issue is taking time to do the editing. And, I haven't done enough, to hold a candle next to your editing.

The one part I alluded to, is seeing the proverbial red mist. I get it a lot when shooting grackles, but I can't recall ever seeing red mist when shooting doves of squirrels. Why, I haven't a clue!
