No matter if you are at the waterfront watching boats approaching from yonder or at the outdoor nature park or bird watching by dusk, one of the essentials you may need is your night vision binoculars. These help you to ‘see™ objects clearly in conditions of poor light, which you will not be able to see with your regular binoculars. Their ability to get this done depend either on ‘light amplification™ or ‘thermal imaging™ both of which have been developed initially for army applications and have like many other technologies found alternate use within our everyday lives too.

Basically most night vision binoculars perform by amplifying the existing light which is ‘too poor™ for our naked eyes to see things or objects, in particular from a distance. Briefly, this is achieved by electronic means, which convert the light in to electrical currents of the order of a few micro amps and amplify them. Thereafter these are converted back into light and the object thus gets clearer to our vision. For this purpose they use a matrix of photosensitive components. Depending on the type of technology used in conversion from light to electric and back, the night vision binoculars are classified as very first, second or third generation. The most recent versions are capable of even recording the objects you are viewing and some models have facility to directly hook them to camcorders! So keep in mind to ask your dealer for these specific details and features. Of course, it goes without saying that the cost will be proportionate to the degree of sophistication!

When you have several options, which is generally the case, the specific features you should remember to ask consist of the following:

• Magnification " this will determine how close the object will appear. E.g., 8X means, the object appears to you 8 times closer than it actually is. Usually 7X to 14X are available and will meet with most requirements, unless you want it for monitoring your perimeter from the house and the fencing is very far in certain sectors or such very same situations.

• Zoom " the capability to make adjustments to the magnification as needed i.e., between 7X and 14X you can select. All binoculars are NOT supplied with this control.

• Aperture " measured in mm, it represents the diameter of the front or objective lens; larger the aperture, more light is gathered by the electronics and b- this is measured better or clearer is the view. For recreational purposes, 20 to 60 mm is adequate, but for surveillance or hunting you may need more and there are models offering 70 mm or more.

• Field Of View (FOV) " this is measured in degrees or specified in linear feet such as 1000 yards. Wider field of view allows you to see a wider picture.

• Number of prisms -  usually there are Roof (small prisms used in smaller models) or Porro prisms for larger FOV

• Focus " single focus control for both eye pieces, with Diopter control independently in some models.

There is also single tube double view or double tube double view depending on whether there is single objective or double objective, the double view meaning two eye pieces. Extras such as rubber casing, armored, water proof and fog proof are features which may be handy during camping, hiking, rock climbing or white water rafting trips.
