Night Vision Binoculars Are An Excellent Way To See At Night! Which Type Should You Buy?

Night Vision products comprise comfort, toughness, guarantee and overall quality. It may be imperative to consider these types of things so you can be positive you pick a set of night vision binoculars that you may utilized for a very long time.

When selecting a pair of night vision binoculars, it is important to ensure the grip is right for you. The need to hold a pair of binoculars is very important to some people before they buy. However, if you are buying on the web, you can ensure a pair of binoculars are secure to hold if the grip is textured or made of a non-slip or rubber casing. This will allow for comfort and they won’t slip out of your hands while hiking or viewing. A good quality strap can be a very comfortable way to carry your binoculars otherwise they become more of a hardship and not so enjoyable.

Durability is another factor that is very important when you are choosing the right fit. If you are a night hunter, hiker or you want to be able to see something at night it is important to choose a pair that is durable and shock resistant to withstand whatever abuse you put it through. In addition to any misuse that might happen, weatherproofing is important. Always verify the binoculars you use have appropriate sealant for waterproofing and fog proof capabilities. Wiping off the lenses constantly is the last thing you want to do when you need them the most.

Different styles are also available. Night vision comes in binocular style as well as monoculars. Tacticle goggles are also available for hands free operation and mostly used by military and law enforcement. The avid hunter might find the night vision rifle scopes an invaluable tool. The built-in IR illuminator will require a power source so knowing what kind of batteries and whether they are easily available in your area or rechargeable is always helpful.

Performance and warranty are the two final things you want to be sure to look at. Great performance can be guaranteed if you can find a good pair with an extra large objective lens and locking eye cups for easy viewing with eye glasses. A warranty tells you the company guarantees their product and the quality of performance you can expect from the product.

There is so much more at Nikon than just binoculars though. There are many other styles of long ranging devices such as riflescopes, rangefinders, spotting scopes, and digiscopes. The riflescopes come in a wide variety of styles and sizes so that they will fit on any type of rifle.

They also come in black, chrome, and even camouflage. While riflescopes are necessary for any hunter, if you are after really elusive game, then you might want to try a rangefinder.

Prostaff Spotting Scope 16-48x65

This device works like a riflescope and has the same, if not longer, range. However, if you click a button on the finder it will give you the distance, in feet or yards, away from your target. There are different rangefinders in the Nikon line that are specifically designed for golf, hunting, or forestry. Spotting scopes are a lot like telescopes and Nikon has designed their life to be specific for hunting or other outdoor pursuits as well.

Finally, they have come up with a way to marry Nikon outdoor gear with Nikon cameras by creating digiscoping, a process by which you can connect your camera to a scope and get great long range pictures.

The line of Nikon optics is absolutely state of the art. If you want to get the best visuals you can while you are wildlife watching or hunting then you should really check out their line of products either online or in authorized Nikon dealers.

Bird Watching Binoculars, How To Pick A Good Pair

Birds are beautiful creatures that have fascinated mankind for thousands of years. If you have an avid interest in birds and bird watching, you likely understand the curiosity and temptation to want to see a bird up close. However, this is not always a possibility to do so without invading their habitat or possibly scaring them away. A good pair of bird watching binoculars can help you view these birds at a much closer range, properly.

Bird watching binoculars can cost anywhere from $50 to hundreds of dollars, depending on the type you use and the features. There are many features and functions to consider when looking for a good pair of binoculars suitable for bird watching. You may have to experiment with different types of binoculars to see what works best for you.

What type of magnification do you need when you are out watching for birds? Be aware that the higher magnification you have, the lower your field of view will be. The reverse also applies; the lower your magnification is, the more field of view you will receive. Experiment with various types of binocular magnification to discover which type might work best for you and your viewings.

Search for binoculars that you know you can focus easily. You should be able to easily adjust them and they should adjust fairly quickly. They should still be able to offer you a crisp image in the meantime. The higher quality of your binoculars, the finer your focusing will be. This is something to consider when you are looking at different prices for binoculars available.

You should also consider the size of the lens. Having the biggest lens is not going to mean you have the best sight of the birds you will be watching. The general recommendation for your lenses is around 35 or 45mm. Many people make the mistake of paying too much money for binoculars with a huge lens, only to find that they are dissatisfied with the quality of the image they receive.

Those who wear glasses need to make considerations towards the eye cups on the binoculars that they have interest in. If the eye cups are made out of soft rubber they will allow you to have better viewing from your glasses being closer to the lens. You can also find binoculars with adjustable eye cups, however these may cost extra in price.

You might have to try out many different pairs of binoculars to find the type that are right for you. Keep in mind that binoculars that work well for someone else may not work well enough for your own preferences. If you have some friends that enjoy bird watching, consider asking if you can borrow some of their binoculars so you can see the different options available.

Discovering and making use of the right pair of bird watching binoculars can really add more to your bird watching experience. You will find that you appreciate these beautiful creatures more than ever before once you have seen them close up. Bird watching binoculars can truly be considered a necessity for anyone who enjoys viewing natural beauty.

Perception Optics; Magnifying Your World With Visual Optics Like Binoculars, Telescopes, Night Vision and Scopes

All company’s have to start somewhere, and Perception Optics is no different, but don’t be fooled by that because the optics we have are not new in concept; they have been around for a very long time. Optical lenses have existed for ages. Lenses were manufactured for spectacles back in the thirteenth century. The first recorded optical telescopes appeared in the Netherlands in 1608. The following year Galileo greatly improved this design and hence history was made.

Today, with years of inventions, modern technology and a clear understanding about the function of the human eye, we have modern optics which include:

Binoculars: The most common, found in almost every household with divided functions which include Astronomy, Compact, Zoom, Digital, and Image Stabilizers

Telescopes: All three types (Refractor, Reflector and Catadioptric) are designed to collect light and bring it to a focus point so it can be magnified by an eyepiece

Nikon Spotting Scope

Spotting Scopes: Excellent uses for bird and nature viewing or determining whether your arrow or gun shot hit the target. Attach a digital camera and you have a powerful zoom lense


Rifle Scopes: Most have none or very little magnification for accurately determining the distance, travel and drop of your prized Trophy.  Waterproof and rugged, a rifle scope is a hunters invaluable accessory.


Range Finder: Like the name implies, it will calculate the distance between yourself and an object either by acoustic, optical or electronic methods and is the tool of choice for hunters and golfers. Range finders can also be used for surveying or determining the focal point in photography.

Night Vision by Night Owl Optics

Night Vision: Gives you the ability to see in reduced illumination such as moonlight and comes in various magnifications including binoculars and monoculars.  Some night vision optics come with IR illuminators (built-in light) for seeing inside caves or buildings.

Everybody needs optics, from small children to grown adults, from homeowners to the trades, and from the hobbyist to the professional. Every child needs their first pair of Binoculars or an Astronomy lesson with their first Telescope and for those who enjoy hunting or a weekend sporting event then sport optics are the perfect choice.
