The Night Storm-HPT is a rugged and lightweight waterproof night vision monocular with outstanding low-light viewing performance. This NVD combines a powerful 3.5x f/1.2 optical system with a high quality second generation intensifier tube to deliver amazing imaging capabilities. When viewing under total-darkness conditions, the integral IR illuminator provides ample supplementary illumination for viewing up to 656' (200m).
The Night Storm's housing is waterproof, and ergonomically designed. Regardless of the climate or situation, you're sure to be able to maintain a sure grip upon this cleverly designed NVD. The exterior of this Night Storm is stealth-black, an excellent choice for covert operations.
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 the method of calculation varies by manufacturer.
The important factors to consider when evaluating any night vision device are the intensifier tube's generation, s/n ratio, level of magnification, specified resolution, along with the clarity & light transmission efficiency of the optical system.
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.
