Summary: The technology quality of this product existed about 30 years ago and wasn't much more money than they are trying to sell it for today. Unless you are looking exactly at an object it is fisheye distorted.
Summary: This is my second night vision monocular by Night Owl. The first one (a much older version) quit working for some unknown reason, so I recommend the warranty. The image is much clearer than older versions by Night Owl (not as grainy) but please know that this IS NOT Gen II!
Summary: with a half moon, I could easily see 200 yards without IR. With no moon could see 50 yards without IR and about 100 yards with IR. In an open field at night, there is no way that anything bigger than a rabbit could cross undetected. I had no problem identifying animals with a half moon.
Summary: This monocular was exactly what we hoped for! It helps us see what animals are roaming our yard at night! The visibility is extremely clear, we can easily tell a skunk from a fox or raccoon, coyote from a deer, etc. Easy to use, and great quality for the price!
Summary: Unit works very well for the price. Its really better than I thought it would be. I have a 2nd generation rifle scope that was fairly expensinve. The Night Owl is almost as good at about 1/5 the cost. I'm very satisfied with it....
