The Avenger 10x 3rd Gen FLAG Long Range Night Vision Monocular from Armasight features a 3rd generation Flag filmless autogated image intensifier tube with filmless GaAs photocathode, resolution of 64-72 lp/mm, and an SNR of 16-30. While the autogating improves resistance to bright light, extends life, and provides better image clarity, the filmless microchannel plate provides a higher signal-to-noise ratio than standard tubes. Overall, the these enhancements result in better image quality in low-light conditions and minimize the halo caused by street lights and other sources of bright light.
If you are moving through environments with changing infrared lighting conditions and need to adjust the brightness and detail of your images, you can use a manual gain control. With 10x magnifications and the included XLR-IR850 infrared illuminator, you can make long range observations at night, in complete darkness and without ambient infrared illumination. The illuminator is detachable and includes a rechargeable battery and a charger. To help you gain stability and reduce image jitter due to shaking hands, which becomes very prominent at higher magnifications, the monocular can be adapted to a 1/4"-20 tripod socket. The 192mm f/2.13 lens system features a large aperture, which collects more infrared light and further increases image brightness. The optical system also offers a 5.2° angular field of view, a 164' minimum focus distance, and a -5 to +5 diopter adjustment. The device can be powered by alkaline, lithium-ion, or rechargeable AA or CR123 batteries.
The rugged and durable composite housing is resistant to saltwater, rain, fog, high humidity, and temperature extremes. The housing also features two accessory mounting points on each side, a wide winged eyecup, and a tethered objective lens cover. This night vision monocular includes a CR123 battery, a hard packing box, and a lens tissue.
