"Night Vision Goggles - Which Generation Are You?"

"Night Vision Goggles - Which Generation Are You?"," But most people do not realise that there are all types of different ones. It is classified by what we call the 'Generation' number of the model. Generation 1 or Gen 1 Night VisionĂ‚  Gen 1 is the lowest performance rating that you will find. The products are generally cheaper coming in nearer $100 and below. This, for example would be useful on a cloudy night with the full moon in the night sky. Generation 2 or Gen 2 night vision id designed to assist where there is not a full moon, but one of its phases, such as crescent. Think more in line with $400 to $1000 realistically. Gen 2 goggles are intended for more serious use, such as surveillance, hunting and camping in the wilderness. We are talking about the serious hunter who spends a lot of time in the woods. With Generation 2 goggles, you should be able to see clearly on a moonless night, when there is very little or low ambient light. If you don't, you will not get the sharp and crisp images you need. When we get to Generation 4 optics, then we are talking about military standard. . WHAT'S UP
