The ATN 4-12x80-2I is a day & night vision sighting system for your long-range precision firearm. Changing from day to night vision is simple, quick, and does not affect your point of impact. The unprecedented combination of an 80mm objective lens with a 40mm main tube sits the scope up high, and delivers a brilliant sight picture all day long.
When the sun dips below the horizon, you can install the night vision ocular and keep on shooting. The night vision eyepiece is fitted with a high-quality image intensifier tube with outstanding resolution performance. When total darkness conditions prevail, the IR illuminator is capable of providing the necessary supplemental illumination you'll need to get on target without being seen.
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 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. No matter what, bright light in any form is not good for the longevity and performance of image intensifier tubes.
