The state-of-the-art intensifier tubes provides the brightest image possible with 5X magnification. If you need to see in complete darkness, switch on the powerful integrated infrared illuminator, which works even at low battery voltage. Multicoated glass optics allow 53-foot field of view at 200 feet and feature precise click-ocular focusing. Housed in a rubberized, ergonomic, water-resistant body.

Night vision technology can dramatically increase the ability to see in situations that are too dark for the naked eye. Night vision devices gather existing moonlight, starlight, or infrared light and use an electrical and chemical process to transform photons (the particles that carry wavelengths of light) into electrons (the particles that carry electrical charge).


The electrons pass through a light intensifier tube and are projected on a phosphorous screen. Since the electrons carry no color information, night vision devices have monochromatic screens. Since the human eye is most sensitive to green light, green is the most often used screen color. Using night vision technology, the light from a dim star in a situation that we may perceive as "pitch black" to the naked eyecould be enough to illuminate an entire field.


First used in World War II and extremely valuable to troops in the Vietnam War, night vision technology has continued to evolve over the past 70 years. Because of this, devices are rated as Generation 1, 2, 3, and sometimes 4. GEN 1 devices are the most popular and are excellent for personal outdoor use—observing nocturnal wildlife, boating, and back country hiking, for example— and will produce light amplification of around 1,000x the available ambient light. Costs increase dramatically for later generation technology, which is most often used for law enforcement and military applications.


GEN 1 devices may produce a faint high-pitched noise when turned on, and will glow green for a few moments when turned off.

    Comments about National Geographic Night Vision Binocular - 5x Magnification:

    I mainly use this product to look at wildlife and check out the open fields and trees but I do like to sometimes play with this inside the house in a pitch black atmosphere to see how good the IR works which by the way works very well. I am extremely impressed with the quality of the intensifer tubes. The image that they produce in these binoculars is AMAZINGLY clear, especially for generation 1 tubes. I had an older pair of generation 1 night vision binocualars a few years ago that did not even give near the image quality that these do. Before buying these, I called Night Owl to ask them about these binoculars as compared to their regular model 5X night vision binoculars and they said that the National Geographic model has higher quality intensifier tubes therefore producing a clearer image. I cannot stress just how CLEAR the image is in these. I would very highly recommend these binoculars to anyone interested in night vision.
