Summary: I was really impressed by this unit. Having been in the military, I've used several different night vision optics and for a Generation 1 unit, it is very clear. I also want comment on the great customer service at OpticsPlanet. I originally ordered a monocular from another "well known" seller. When I recieved it, it was not even the model that I ordered nor the brand.
review for Yukon NVMT 2x24 Night Vision Monocular YK24021
29 December 2010
Summary: Night Vision works well. I don't have any point of reference with regard to Gen I verses Gen II or Gen III, but I would say that I was pleasantly surprised by the capability of this unit. I was also pleasantly surprised to learn that there are a number of cool accessories available for this device (i.e. camera adapter, different lenses, head gear). Unit seems to be well constructed and I hope that it proves to be long lasting.
Pros: easy to use, works well, long battery life
Cons: ir illuminator emits slightly visible red light
Summary: Bought the Yukon 2x24 for camping trips to see the critters at night. The unit is very easy to use, but the field of vision is a little small. To minimize the fishbowl effect, I found it best to hold the unit "vertical" with my fingers off the buttons. In this orientation, the image was clear, but I did find it easy to hit the focus control. For the price, it's a nice optic; I think I would buy a 4x or 5x unit if I had it to do over again.
Summary: I think this device is a vivid example of a perfect price-performance ratio. It is really easy and convenient to use and is suits well for everyday tasks. Surely recommended for those who need good perfeormancу at reasonable money.
Summary: Das Yukon 1824121 Nachtsichtgerät Spartan NVMT-1 2x24 WP funktioniert einwandfrei und hat unsere Erwartungen übererfüllt. Man sollte sich aber immer vorher genau überlegen, wozu man das Gerät benutzen möchte.
Summary: Anbei eine kurze Zusammenfassung zum Yukon NVMT-1 2x24 WP Modell Handhabung: - klein und sehr leicht. - Schärfe und Fokussierung sind leicht einzustellen und verstellen sich auch nicht so leicht mehr. - Liegt gut in der Hand, da sich am Gehäuse gummierte Grifflächen befinden. Funktion: - bei Straßenlicht und Mondlicht gute Bildhelligkeit ohne IR Strahler'Sicht bis 150m kein Problem.
