This digital night vision device has a large display and a tripod thread. This instrument is not prone to malfunction due to illumination overexposure since it is equipped with the newest digital technology and not the traditional analog version. Although intended for use during dusk or dawn, the integrated IR illumination allows the observer to see in total darkness. Because of the large view you have the opportunity to look with distance in the night vision device. The 3x magnification (6x with digital zoom) allows far objects to be seen with greater detail. The maximum observation distance is approximately 100m.
