These ATN binoculars were my first night vision purchase, so I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. I found them to be very easy and intuitive to set up and use and the directions were quite straightforward.
The image you get looking through the binoculars is noticeably grainy, but completely usable out to about 75 yards in extreme darkness. Any ambient light expands that limit to around 125 yards. I use these for scanning for animals in the woods at night and they've been great for that purpose.
I'd hoped for a slightly crisper image and a little more range, but I think that requires a leap in price to the higher-generation models. Overall, I'm quite satisfied with these.
