Adinolfi showcased the Yukon Photon XT 4-6x42mm digital riflescope at the 2016 HIT Show
Manufactured in Lithuania by Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide, the Photon XT 4-6x42mm offers excellent image contrast and quality levels

At the 2016 edition of the HIT Show Adinolfi, the imorter for Italy showcased the latest product from the Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide company to hit the international civilian markets: the Photon XT digital night vision riflescope.

Basically a hybrid between a night vision device and a digital riflescope − featuring several types of selectable reticles, all different in shape and color − the Yukon Photon XT sports an 810nm infrared LED and a CMOS sensor to allow not only night vision capabilities in full darkness, but also low-light capabilities (eg. twilight, fog, adverse environmental conditions) and daytime use capabilities thanks to an integrated light filter.

Conceived for hunting purposes, the Yukon Photon XT offers a 4.6x magnification ratio and a 640x480 definition display; it is compatible with most commonly available riflescope attachment rings, will withstand recoil energies up to 6000 Joules and weighs barely 620 grams without batteries. The official retail price for the Yukon Photon XT is set at just over 500 Euros − making it one of the most affordable commercial night vision systems available today.
