The 1x21 Challenger Gen 2 Night Vision Monocular from Pulsar is a multi-purpose NVD featuring a second generation image intensifier, built-in infrared illuminator, accessory rail, and two 1/4"-20 threaded mounts. The Gen 2 intensifier tube is protected from excessive light levels and prevents damage to the viewer's eye by automatically deactivating the device when exposed to a bright light source. Two mounting options allow the observer to tripod-mount the monocular or attach it to the included head gear for comfortable long-duration viewing.
Included with the Challenger NVD is a 30mW infrared illuminator that will enhance detail of the viewed image and extend the visible range of the monocular as well as enable the observer to see in pitch darkness. Additional functionality is provided by an integrated Weaver rail for attaching a long-range IR illuminator or other NV accessory.
This configuration of the Challenger has a 27mm f/1.29 lens system that transmits a 40° angle of view and is capable of being focuses as close as 8". In addition to the Challenger's 40lp/mm minimum resolution, its wide field of view and close focus ability make the 1x21 Challenger well-equipped for close-range recreational viewing tasks.
