Possibly the most affordable way to start shooting with nightvision the Yukon Photon range features competitive, 4.5x and 6x optical zoom and a built in 2x digital zoom boosting the devices overall performance to 9x and 12x. Equipped with a shock resistance suitible for calibres up to .375 H&H and built on a standard 30mm tube for mounting, these rifle scopes are suitible for most rifles.
The latest incarnatation of the Photon range the RT boasts an all new set of features, based around the innovative stream vision technology, these new models allow the user to view, control, record and stream the images seen through the rifle scope direct via WIFI to their tablet or smart phone. Now the user can share and document there hunting expeditions. App avaialble for both Apple iOS and Android devices.
High shock resistance
The Photon RT features exceptionally high shock resistance, capable of handling high-powered firearm recoil, up to .375-cal., including smoothbore and airsoft.
Capturing still images and video is seamless with the Photon RTs built-in video recorder. Image and video content is stored internally and can easily be transferred to PC/laptop via wired connection or wirelessly to your smartphone or tablet with the iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision App.
Photon RT 4.5x42 Digital Night Vision Riflescope includes base optical magnification of 4.5x, while digital zoom also provides 2x magnification. Even at maximum optical magnification and digital zoom, the sensor and display deliver rich, high quality imaging.
A full complement of 6 digitally displayed reticle solutions, in 3 colors, ensures quick target acquisition and a richly contrasting sight picture.
High night sensitivity, robust magnification and a powerful built-in IR illuminator combine to make the Photon RT Riflescopes the perfect tool for target detection at the distances of 150 - 300 meters.
Digital night vision devices can be operated in daylight without fear of immediate or long-term damage. They are also not damaged by artificial illumination, i.e. car headlights, street lights, etc. To reduce light transfer into the units objective lens during daytime operation, the lens cover includes a light filter. The result is decreased brightness, increased contrast and more comfortable viewing.
Using the free, high-tech, iOS and Android compatible Stream Vision app, the Photon RT connects via Wi-Fi to allow transfer of images and video to smartphones and other wireless devices in real time, stream footage to YouTube and other online video platforms (depending on model), and even use your personal device as a wireless remote control!
Eyesafe eye relief
The Photon RT riflescopes feature a 70 mm eye relief one of the best parameters in its class. The greater is the eye relief the less traumatic is the use of the scope, especially on hunting weapons with considerable recoil.
Easy mounting on a rifle
The middle part of the Photon RT body is a 30 mm tube, standard for daylight optical sights, which enables the Photon to be mounted on various types of hunting weapons using proven solutions.
Powerful invisible infrared illuminator
The Photon RT 4.5x42 and 6x50 models are equipped with integrated LED IR illuminator with 940 nm wavelength. Integrated IR illuminator is practically invisible with a naked eye. It allows hunter observe animals without the risk of scaring them. 3-stage power adjustment range gives possibility to vary operation distance greatly.
Quick battery replacement
The Photon RT is powered by four AA batteries housed in a convenient case and inserted into an easy-to-access battery compartment. An additional case is included for ultra-fast battery replacement.
External power supply
Operation time can be significantly prolonged by using high-capacity external power supply units (power banks), which can be attached to the Photon RT via a weather- resistant micro-USB port. When using the Photon RT at low temperatures, the power supply can be kept in a warm place, i.e. under clothing, to prevent rapid discharge.
During short periods of inactivity and better concealment, Display Off powers down the display without interrupting other operating functions. Using Display Off means a much faster restart time when you need it most.

Today, with technology conecting billions of people accross the globe, developing cross-platform devices is more important than ever. Taking inspiration from the communications industry; Yukon have developed Stream Vision technology to connect their night vision devices to the popular Apple and Android Operating systems.
Photon RT Digital NV riflescopes were designed with cutting-edge 21st century innovation to handle more than simple viewing tasks. While Yukon continues to develop feature-rich devices focused on high-resolution image quality, ergonomics and world-class reliability, we understand that now, more than ever, ease of interface and multi-vector use are equally important.
Stream Vision solves this task by providing a symbiosis of software and hardware platforms designed to connect personal Android and iOS devices, i.e. smartphones, tablets, etc. to Yukon digital night vision devices via Wi-Fi.
By installing the Stream Vision App (available in AppStore for iOS and Google Play for Android), digital night vision operators using Ranger RT, Signal RT or Photon RT models benefit from:
- Comfortable, fatigue-free, streaming field-of-view displayed on wireless devices in real time
- Using your smart phone or tablet as an additional remote control
- Full content management view, delete and download photo and video files stored in the devices onboard memory
- Transmit images and videos directly to storage or video platforms like YouTube
Stream Visions proprietary software was developed by Yukon Advanced Optics Worldwide specifically for Stream Vision-compatible Yukon optoelectronic devices to ensure additional program functionality is easily accessible. Stream Visions 2017 achievements already include the ability to share video content to more publishing platforms than just YouTube, enter ballistic calculator information into the device and record with motion-detector video activation.
