Night Owl Optics NOCX5M overview

  • 1Description

With a high-quality lens element 48mm wide to bring in lots of light, the Explorer Marine Pro is a powerful, premium nightvision monocular. You'll be able to use it in complete darkness with the assistance of the infrared illuminator, and the strong 5x magnification gives you recognition range of up to 650' (198 m). It is essentially a waterproofed version of the Explorer Pro, and will float if dropped into water.

There are many different variables that effect the distance that one can see with a nightvision device, among them the object's size, the level of details being sought from the object and the conditions of observation. Nightvision 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 nightvision 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.

    Night Owl Optics NOCX5M reviews

    Explorer Marine Pro 1st Generation Night Vision Monocular is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Other review makes no sense, this works very well Very solid build, with rubber coating. I've had mine for a couple of years and I think the last reviewer did not realize you are supposed to adjust BOTH lenses to focus. The lens and the eyepiece. I've used this monocular to view things in the dark 100 yards away without problems. It works very well, although since it is a magnifier it's a bit hard to walk while looking through it. I've even used it for astronomy which was pretty interesting.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from very poor visibility and quality I bouth this night vision a few years ago and used it about 8 times. Reason: the visibility is very poor. Distances of more than 10 feet are not really possible. After my last try, I figure out that the holding mechanismus of the lens broke - a very bad construction. So I threw this monocular in the garbage. I should have done this after the first time since you can not see anything at night more than 10 feet away. So better buy a more expensive one. By the way, it is produced in Russia !!! After it broke, I opened it and it comes from Russia.
