The ATN Night Scout Night Vision Binoculars
If you are looking for Night Vision Binoculars with both power and efficiency in design, you can stop looking. For a 1st generation NVD, the specifications do not get more impressive. The ATN Night Scout Night Vision Binoculars feature 5X magnification, 35,000 light gain and a high resolution intensifier tube. The resolution is 40 lines per millimeter, which is the most you will find for a first generation night vision unit. But, it is not the power of these binoculars that makes them stand out, but rather the impressive efficiency considerations they include. For example, instead of two intensifier tubes, there is only one. This might come off as a negative, but the truth here is counter-intuitive for two reasons. First, the most expensive part of a NVD is the intensifier tube, so having only one saves you money with little sacrifice in performance.
With only one intensifier tube, you may be wondering why not purchase a monocular or biocular? The reason is that with binoculars, you still get the depth perception that monoculars and bioculars cannot provide. Additionally, these ATN Night Scout Binoculars include a proximity sensor which works exceptionally well. The proximity sensor activates the binoculars when they are close to your eyes, and turns them off when you set them down. This efficient innovation saves battery life. We carry batteries for all the equipment we sell.
Other than time, it also saves something even more valuable: time. Whether you are hunting, hiking or doing night surveillance, the difference between sighting what you need and missing the opportunity is a matter of seconds. With the proximity sensor, you will never spend an extra second fiddling around with your ATN Night Vision Device. It is always on when you need it, and off when you do not.
