Night Owl Optics takes pride in providing you with consistent, top quality products. They maintain their position as an industry leader in night vision technology by integrating state-of-the-art concepts and designs into all of their night vision monoculars, binoculars and flip-up goggles.
Night Owl's Marine night vision monocular brings the light of day even further into the darkest of nights with its powerful 4.0x magnification. Watching the action unfold in green-hued wonder through the high-quality 1st generation intensifier gives you the advantage over those equipped with mere day-time optics. Even in total darkness the Galactic View comes through with brilliant imagery, thanks to the integral IR illuminator. One flip of the switch is all it takes for you to be able to see all of those things that go bump in the night.
The shock-resistant rubber-armored housing of the Galactic View provides a secure and comfortable grip. When you need to view across great distances, the 4.0x magnification brings distant objects in close for detailed viewing.
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.
