So in budget optics from 1k-2k use how important is illumination to you? For a precision rifle I have never run illumination, just night vision or thermal in the military. Now I am building a civilian rifle I am trying to figure if I need illumination or not. Yiu get more features for less without it and there are some bad illumination out there.

Illumination not real important to me as long as its decent im good, clarity at full x is whats most important as far as vision. Accurate turrets that return to zero , 1 click = .36 inches, 10 clicks =3.6 inches, that type stuff. If all that's on, im good

I imagine if I hunted in low light then Illumination would be more important but as it is, if I get 80-85% light transmission im ok:)
