For only night use and a max shot of 200 yds which makes more sense.A 1.5x6x42 or a 2.5x10x50.Both 30mm tube.I am using this for coyotes and bobcats.I will spend 800 max.Thanks.

I would go with 2.5-10x50 because you will let more light in with the 50mm bell.

+1 to what Red Dog said, and it also gives you a bit more option in the daytime.

You'll never get 200 yards at night. You might see eyes but I wouldn't shoot until you can positively identify the animals. Nothing like shooting a Kit fox that is protected.

Even at 100yds a Kit fox looks like a coyote until it's standing in the wide open areas. I almost shot one last year because I thought it was a yote.
