      Comments about Armasight Prime 5x GEN 1+ Night Vision Monocular:

      This unit is a fine choice at the $[$] price at which I purchased it from B&H. Although I can imagine many good and typical uses for this monocular, I bought it from B&H for a very unusual reason; I need to observe an elderly person I am caring for several times a night in near lightless conditions while she is sleeping. She, like many people in their 90's, is both a very light and restless sleeper and requires to have a concentrated oxygen delivering cannula inserted in her nasal passages 24-7. If I approach her close enough to see if the cannula is in place, she often wakes up, no matter how slowly or quietly I approach her, whether necessarily or not. If I stand back about 15-20 feet with the Prime 5x monocular, I can make out whether the cannula has slipped off or not and only bother to disturb her sleep if I need to put the cannula back in place. This saves worrying about it and, most importantly, saves her precious sleep as well, all the while keeping her healthier. I must note however that the scope's resolution, while very good for a type 1 gen device, is barely adequate to read a detail as fine as a small diameter transparent tube that is not necessarily lit at an optimal angle. Depending on the angle of the patient's head to the light, it is sometimes very difficult to make out the presence of the tube - difficult, but still possible. Also, the on/off switch is not very positive in its action, so that it is sometimes difficult to decide, in the dark, whether the unit is actually shut off or not. Overall, I am very satisfied with the Prime 5x and think it is a great instrument for the money.
