    In all honesty I think this is the best video you have ever posted, particularly since I have the same unit and the menu matches. Thanks.

    Great info. I have two of the units in the video. The adjustments required for each one to get a good picture is different. I adjusted them side by side at the same time too.

    Nice. It's videos like these which help folks to understand the use of these pieces of kit. Nice job on this one.

    Your brightness may be set different not sure there could be several factors. The main thing is getting them to look the best.

    I think this will be helpful as most complaints on the Armasight ends up operator error and not set up properly.

    I figured as much, I think your youtube should be sent with every sale, maybe it will help.

    I have 2 of the 336-42mm, they have different views as well. One is a little darker than the other on the same settings.

    Thanks for sharing. I spent about an hour last weekend playing around and learning the scope. It is very east to play with once you get the hang of it.

    Todd, When I'm looking at the eyepiece on the Armasight Zeus 3-25x75 and turn the unit on the picture is very clear for a couple of seconds then the view gets grayed out some and the picture is not as clear. Any suggestions.

    Is this an updated firmware unit? Sounds like the auto gain control is taking over but hard to tell without seeing it.

    Thanks I took down my Smart Scene settings and was able to see a little better detail overall! I had it in the 80s

    I am a new member. I just bought an Armasight Zeus 640. I am going to mount it on an ar platform 6.8spc. The ar is a rock river and has the military style fixed post sight on front with and above the gas block. Will this interfere with the thermal scope picture? Do I need to get another front sigh and gas block. Thank you for any help on ths matter>

    If it is in the way just dremel the top off the sight leaving the gas block intact.
