Used to be real good with moon light. Very sensitive. Even better after turning it off it would work great with best low light resolution. Unit eventually lost sensitivity. Now ambient light looks the same as naked eye. Still works with IR but not as good. Also makes high pitched squeal. Never exposed it to day light. Tube must have gone bad. Im shopping for a different make now.

Author: Sonny (verified customer) , Outdoorsman, from Little Rock, Mississippi on Feb 24, 2010
Pros:  AA batteries, Fair price, Nice appearance
Cons:  Gen 1, Made in China
Would recommend:  yes

Sonny wrote:

This is a good unit for the price you pay, optics are pretty good although there is some fisheye effects. The two different IR beams are nice and you can cut both of them off for those moonlit nights, you can make out cows in a pasture at probably 300+ yards on a 3/4 moon night, you can see a lot more, especially at distance than you can with the naked eye. The bads if you want to call them that would be, the battery door is a little quirky, with the flood lamp on your hand gets in the way of the beam when trying to focus. Minimum focus in reality is about 10-12 feet. That's about all the bad points there are. Just be sure to get the diopter adjusted to your eye before you judge the unit. Optics Planet delivered on time like they said, they sent a tracking number and shipping was free, sure I'd love to have a Gen 3, but you aren't going to get that for this price, overall quite happy with this purchase.

Author: tog63 (verified customer) from Norway on Feb 8, 2010
Pros:  Good quality, fine IR light sources, good value for money
Cons:  For some use, a binocular would probably be more convenient
Would recommend:  yes

tog63 wrote:

The relatively strong light in one eye makes it inconvenient when it is removed, that is: swiching back and forth between using the night vision monocular and using naked eyes, is inconvenient. I would probably go for a binocular next time. It works well when staying in-doors and looking out into the garden, but for more or less continuous use (e.g. in my boat late in the evening), I would rather recommend a binocular.

Pros:  works great out of the box
Cons:  difficult to see beyond 50 yards
Would recommend:  yes

Ed wrote:

This is excellent for short range viewing even in complete darkness. Details become increasingly difficult to see beyond 50 yards. This is a necessary tool for observing wildlife past sundown.
