How Night Vision Scope Works
Night Vision Scopes are sophisticated optical-electronic devices that assist viewing in near or complete darkness by amplifying all available light. Unlike telescopes and binoculars, night vision is usually not intended for magnification of remote objects (most night vision devices offer either no magnification 1x to very low 2x to 4x magnification).
Most night vision devices offered by OpticsGears.com include a built-in Infra-Red (IR) Illuminator that acts as a “night vision flashlight” and provides additional light, making viewing in complete darkness a reality. A small red dot appears on the front of the night vision device when the IR Illuminator is ON. There are now Night Vision Blackout Infrared IR Filter Kits for Military Vehicles and even regular Spot Light Flashlights.
