If you want the best technologically advanced pair of Night Vision binoculars available, look no further. The Night Scout, "Smart" binoculars come with a high resolution 1st generation intensifier tube, which gives a maximum light amplification of 35,000. The computerized proximity sensor, when activated, turns the unit on when in viewing position and off when not.
The heavy-coated 90mm glass lenses allow for optimum clarity and distace. The best part is that if there is no light to amplify, with the help of the infrared illuminator, you can cut through the darkness.
PLEASE NOTE: There are many variables which influence the distance one sees with night vision devices-amongst them the object's size, the level of detail being sought and the observation conditions. 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 this varies by manufacturer, so ultimately the generation of the intensifier tube is much more relevant than any quoted statistic when determining the maximum viewing range.
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. Bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
