ATN night vision goggle

Postby Ryan on Fri Nov 16, 2007 12:33 am

I'm having trouble deciding what would be the best for my application. I would like to stay under $500. A night vision goggle appeals to me, because I would like to walk around hands free. However, I would also like the option to zoom in on things. I have found that the ATN Viper 15061 might do the job- but I'm concerned about-
1. Image quality (how does it compare to a bushnell digital NV?)
2. Is it hard to walk around looking through a monocular?
3. How well does the optional 90mm lens work for magnification? Is it easy and quick to install?

If you have any other products that would fit this criteria please send them my way. sorry for so many questions... thanks a lot!

The image quality of a digital night vision unit like the Bushnell Stealthview is superior in every way to a gen one or two night vision unit and has the option of plugging in RCA cables to record. Goggles are clumsy to use but you can get used to them. It's kind of fun unless you're forced to use them. The 90 mm lens will degrade the picture significantly. Installation is not an issue.
