Wanted a way to see animals coming to feeders at night without disturbing them. If this is entry level night vision then the upgrades must be like watching HDTV. Once you figure out how to focus you get a very crisp image even in total darkness. Highly recommend.

night vision monocular
The sales person said that it probably would not be what my husband wanted, but I just could not afford to pay $700 or above for the so called "really good" ones. My husband only wanted something to see if the feral hogs were out in our back pasture or if the coyotes were in with our calves. This particular brand has met his needs very well and he is very pleased with his gift. I can tell because he uses it every night. You can see every thing for about the length of a football field perfectly. Thanks
I bought a pair, took them to the ranch. Couldn't believe what's out there at night. We set up in a blind, about and he later. We started to see hog and coyote out around the area. Very happy with my new night vision goggles

Save your money
Save your money for something a set that's a little better then this. That being said if you just have to have it buy a different IR light to use. The one that's on it goes about 20 yards and that's about it. I'm about to take these back tomorrow.
I purchased after research of gen.1 night vision options. I am glad I made the purchase. I had trouble at first using this unit, but after a little time learning the ins and outs I am glade I made this choice. The vision is very clear at around 20 30 yards I can see the bark on trees and the wood grain on my fence. At around 500 yards the vision is clear with no trouble seeing objects. With the digital on I have used it in very low light and total darkness inside my house and it works
... read more great. It does require focusing but after practice this is an easy task.
I would recommend the construction is rugged and I feel it is built to last.
One note: don't get frustrated in the beginning as with many things you are not familiar with it requires a little learning, but after that they work great.
This item is everything that I expected. It works great in low light, but extremely well under full moon. I have not needed to use the I.R that came with it yet. I can see things clearly at over 300 yards with no problem.

Best Bang for the $$
I bought this to mount it on my Leupold 4.4-14x50 and bought one of those scope mounting systems. This thing goes right on to your scope so no need to worry about extended rail. Holds it nice and tight. It also comes with Infrared illuminator which definitely makes things nicer. I bought it for coyotes up in Oregon and really like the option of being able to switch from day scope to a night vision scope with this. Ordered it on the 15th and received the unit on the 19th.
