Night Owl Tactical Goggles BG1 Description

Night Owl’s classic military-style night vision goggle system is designed for hands-free use with a head-mask. Our hinged quick-release mount also allows the user to quickly flip the goggle up out of his field of view or to detach for use as a hand-held binocular. Designed for use while walking or operating a vehicle, the BG1 presents the user a non-magnified 1-to-1 image with a wide field of view. F 1.4 lenses improve depth perception beyond that provided by standard night vision viewers. And a light sensor automatically cuts power to prevent burning out the intensifier tubes in the event of exposure to a potentially damaging light source.

Gen 1 Night Vision

1st generation is currently the most popular type of night vision in the world. Utilizing the basic principles described in detail in our guide, a 1st generation unit will amplify the existing light several thousand times letting you clearly see in the dark. These units provide a bright and sharp image at a low cost, which is perfect, whether you are boating, observing wildlife, or providing security for your home. You may notice the following when you are looking through a 1st Gen. unit. A slight high-pitched whine when the unit is on. The image you see may be slightly blurry around the edges. This is known as Geometric Distortion. When you turn a 1st Gen. unit off it may glow green for some time. These are inherent characteristics of a 1st Gen. unit and are normal.

    • Q: Never owned a pair of night vision, would this one be a good set for viewing animals at a distance at night and how far away can they be seen?

    • A: Hi Lorie. There are many night vision goggles out there and it can be pretty confusing to identify the one you need. The best thing is for you to give us a call so we can discuss the usage parameters and suggest the best device for your needs/price range.
