I recently purchased this product to spot the armadillos tearing up my lawn at night. It works really well. With no natural light (stars and moon) you will definitely need to use your IFR. At the edge of my property is a wood line. I couldnt see anything within the wood line. I could see about 50 yards crystal clear. I couldnt make out the face of a person, but most definitely I could see that it was a human. The only negative thing that I have to say about this DNVM is that it should have come with a lanyard and lens cap. I recommend this product
Pros: excellent IFR, crystal clear black and white imaging.
Cons: It doesn't come with a lens cap nor lanyard
