Product Highlights
  • Waterproof
  • 2.0x Magnification
  • 1st Generation Intensifier

Bushnell gets you up close and personal with the great outdoors with their diverse world of precision optics and outdoor technologies. Every Bushnell optic is the direct result of extensive research and design.

Investigating what goes 'bump-in-the-night' with Bushnell's NightWatch 2x24 night vision monocular can be quite exhilarating. This lightweight waterproof NVD provides the power of sight without light in a handy ergonomic form factor.

With its sleek yet rugged housing, and built in IR illuminator, the NightWatch monocular is an excellent choice for camping, caving, wildlife observation, surveillance, or any time and place you think you're ready to experience the secrets of the dark first hand.

There are many different variables that affect the distance that one can see with a night vision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Night vision devices detect much further under a full moon and clear skies than they will under a new moon and cloudy skies. Many different formulas are used to determine the statistic of maximum viewing range and the method of calculation varies by manufacturer. The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission efficiency of the optical system.

All night vision devices sold by B&H have mechanisms in place to protect the intensifier tube from a sudden burst of bright light, but this does not mean that bright light doesn't damage the device. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.

        Comments about Bushnell NightWatch 2x24 Night Vision Monocular:

        I spent hours researching night vision goggles for fishing/hunting, I found that this was the best product out there.

        When I continued to research, I found that B&H offered the absolute best price around and even beat out the other big companies! I wish I hadn't wasted so much time looking at other sites. The product arrived fast, was in perfect condition, and lived up to my expectations.

        I will definitely use B&H again.

          Comments about Bushnell NightWatch 2x24 Night Vision Monocular:

          I use these for tactical applications during training from forest and mountainous terrain to urban... The problem with these for me is that they are no better than my own eyes' night vision unless I use an external IR light which makes it NOT tactical considering the fact that anyone else with NVG's can also see the IR light. However, not everyone out there has night vision capabilities but most camera systems do. They are too weak to work in total darkness but if you aren't worried about someone seeing an external IR light, which you will want to use to conserve battery, (not to mention the fact that the built-in flood light is VISIBLE to the naked eye)then they are great. Especially for the price.

            Used this during a night sail and found it somewhat useful. Its hard to get a focused picture and the image is not that easy to interprate.
