            excellent gen1 nightvision. great value

            By krazee dave

            from austin tx

            Comments about Night Owl Optics NexGen II 5x50 Night Vision Monocular:

            I have a few gen1 night vision monoculars and this one by far has the best vision at the farthest range. I have an NHT 42mm gen1 and a 20mm gen1 and this unit sees detail and distance better than either. NHT cost more and the smaller about the same. The 50mm lense makes most of it and the higher lines of pickup add to that. You need to go to gen3 to gain anything over this.

              This optic was larger than I expected and doesn't produce images of much use. This was purchased for police work and I was attracted by the great price. You get what you pay for.

                    I've only had this for a few days but so far am very happy with it. Very well-made and durable. Clear images once you understand how it works. The only issues I have are that the lens cap will not stay on (I've contacted te company but no response yet.) and the bag is a little too tight fitting so it makes it a little difficult to take out and put back quickly. It was also a little larger than I expected but I didn't check the dimensions very carefully beforehand. Otherwise I think for night viewing it's a good product.

                      This product is great! We use it on back road rides to watch the deer. Also came in handy when the dog got loose at night!
