Paintball night vision?

Postby McIntire on Thu May 29, 2008 3:09 pm

Hi, everyone, I was thinking of getting myself a night vision monocular for night games.

Here are my two options:

http://www.opticsplanet.com/atnamvipmodh.html

The thing is, which one is better for the price?
The Yukon doesn't have reviews, and as for the ATN Viper, half the people say it works, half say it doesn't.

Also, it needs to fit over my mask, the vforce profiler.
It has about a 25 inch circumfrence, and the visor is removable.

Hi,

Can't guarantee that one will fit over the visor, but I have two that I would recommend. One is the Yukon that you are looking at. I like the versatility of this unit and the availability of accessories for it.

The other model I recommend is the Bushnell 1x20 Tactical Monocular Goggle. This is the smallest and lightest of the three units, is the mose comfortable to wear (without the visor, at least) and is the fastest and easiest to adjust.
Best regards,

Ryan W.

Yukon monocular

McIntire, I think you should really consider Yukon monocular. This device is very comfortable to operate. It's the best device you can get for an affordable price.

Sorry, no such accessory exists for the Bushnell. If you wish to mount an NV, you will need to make your own adapter.

The only disadvantage of a night vision monocular is that it allows you to use only one eye when you observe. Over long observing sessions, this can create eye strain and fatigue, but, fortunately, most NV observing is intermittent, not continuous

Very true, but the plus side to that is your other eye maintains its natural nightvision. If you want to quickly switch from using teh monocular to looking close by you wont have a pause while your eyes adjust, you can simply use your other eye. With a binocular or biocular you will need a few seconds for your eyes to adjust once being removed from the device.
