Gen 2 Night Vision devices give you an excellent view that is clearly a step up from Generation 1 Night Vision, but the prices are still reasonable enough for most budgets! But what exactly do you get from the Second Generation of Night Vision? A pretty big increase in light amplification, with about 45% more light amplified from second generation NV, and you'll generally have about 20% more resolution. That's pretty significant, and will give you a serious advantage over anyone using a First Gen Night vision. If you have questions about how Night Vision works, read through our How To On Night Vision and you'll get a better idea of what to look for. As with any high level optical device, the brand makes a difference, and we have a great selection of the top manufacturers such as ATN, Bushnell, Nikon and Yukon! Super high grade Gen. 2+ night vision binoculars, goggles, and scopes are modern, compact, and high performance devices that will help you see at night.
