    Took my photon out this evening and took a couple of shots to make sure of zero..
    At 35 yards it wasnt even hitting a 17cm target!!
    I checked the x and y and they were what i had originally set them at, then noticed the batteries were down to quarter charge..
    Changed them for new aa’s and suddenly the scope found it’s zero perfectly again!!
    Is this a known issue for the yukon to lose zero on low batteries as i havent experienced it before??

    That's interesting.. I had a similar zero shift issue with my Photon; sent it back and was provided with a replacement - which makes me think it's a known issue. Hadn't considered that it might be a power issue though..

    I've not heard of this before. I like to fit fresh batteries before every session, just in case (in all my nv kit).

    Hmm - I missed a rat the other night and the batteries were low. I rechecked the zero the following day and it was fine - I had however recharged the batteries.

    I must look more closely at this. Thanks Rob.

    Im sure ive run the batteries to 25% before and not had this happen before so it mightve just been a glitch..
    My crosshairs are slightly down and left of center on the screen and it looked the same as usual.
    It was shooting at least 9 inches low at 35 yards..
    Gonna use it as backup as this bundle turned up this morning!!
