Night Owl Optics takes pride in providing you with consistent, top quality products. They maintain their position as an industry leader in night vision technology by integrating state-of-the-art concepts and designs into all of their night vision monoculars, binoculars and flip-up goggles.

Night Owl's NexGen 4x Lightweight Night Vision Monocular provides an excellent combination of features, cost, and easily managed weight. The housing and controls are ergonomically designed to simplify the handling and operation of the monocular.

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 Night Owl Optics NexGen 4x Lightweight Night Vision Monocular:

    Used to watch wildlife in our yard at night. Focusing is done through adjustment of both ends. The diopter by the eye and the objective lens end. the center half of the view is fairly clear, but starts distorting about halfway out to the edge of the view. Light gathering is reasonable for a gen1 product, but not as bright as one would hope. This could be due to the 4X magnification. IR illuminator has about a 200 ft functional range and is very effective within that range. Overall I am satisfied with the quality for the price.
