NiteSite Viper Short Range Night Vision Clipon - Black Description

NiteSite Viper Night Vision Clipon - for the up-close and personal night hunter.

The Viper is designed to be the most affordable, high quality night vision system on the market for short-range distances. It achieves this using a powerful infrared illuminator (invisible to people and animals) to literally illuminate the target area immediately in front of where the rifle scope is aiming, allowing clear target identification up to 100 meters (110 yards) away. The infrared image is then captured through the rifle scope by a compact digital camera unit attached to the scope’s eyepiece and then played back live to the hunter via the unit’s integral 3.5 inch LCD screen. A video out jack enables recording of all night hunting activities.

Like all NiteSite products, the Viper utilizes infrared illumination in a unique way, making it more affordable, reliable and user friendly than traditional light amplification technologies, delivering crisp, ultra-clear night vision, regardless of ambient light conditions.


From Night Vision Guys about NiteSite Viper Night Vision Clipon

NiteSite Viper is a unique product unlike any other on the market.  Most night vision clipons are tubular devices which attach in front of the day time scope.  You use the viewfinder of your daytime scope to aim.  NiteSite Viper has a digital night vision camera which attaches behind the day scope (between shooter and the scope).  This camera then feeds the image out to a display which is attached on top of the scope.  This unique setup results in a bulkier contraption but the display provides a much bigger picture which makes it easier to aim at night.  Overall, NiteSite Viper is a great cost efficient option for converting your dayscope into a night vision scope within as little as 60 seconds.


Every new NiteSite Viper comes with the following:

NiteSite Viper - Heavy duty field carry case

1 x Carry Case. A robust carry case, fully padded with laser cut high-density ergonomic foam, makes transporting easy and ensures all components are held firmly and are heavily protected from the inevitable knocks the case will endure in the field. Large clasps make unlocking the case easy in night vision conditions.

NiteSite Viper - Illuminator module and viewing screen

1 x Illuminator module. The scope mounted module houses 1 powerful (IR) illuminator delivering a range of up to 100m. An ergonomic ‘dimming’ knob allows accurate control of the illumination power to reduce flare for closer range targeting. The hooded front has an inset protective lens cover. The rear of the module features a 3.5 inch LCD viewing screen.

Connection to the camera unit is via a 90 degree male three pin jack plug and cable. The base features a patented ‘T’ bracket that connects securely to the Anti recoil clamps ‘T’ slot.

NiteSite Viper - Digital IR camera module

1 x Camera module. The rugged module houses a colour infrared (IR) frequency camera 1.0 Lux 600TVL 1/3 CCD CMOS sensor (PAL or NTSC) 4:3 ratio. Audio and video (AV) output allows external connection to a recording device via a 3.5mm four pin socket (PAL or NTSC depending on your region). A large push button on/off switch is located on the rear face of the module for easy night operation.

NiteSite Viper - Lithium-ion battery

1 x battery. The Viper is supplied with a 1.5Ah lithium-ion polymer scope mounted battery with adjustable Velcro fastening.

NiteSite Viper - Battery charger

1 x 12 volt lithium-ion charger with charging indicator. Red light indicates the battery is charging. The green light indicates the battery is fully charged. Always use the correct charger supplied with the NiteSite battery product.

NiteSite Viper - Multi diameter scope sleeves

2 x scope sleeves. 35mm or 40mm diameter rubber sleeves provide a secure, stable connection from the scope’s ocular to the camera unit. The heavy duty rubber construction is flexible enough to stretch over most rifle scope eyepieces although the first application of the scope sleeve over larger diameter eyepieces (44mm plus) can be assisted by softening the sleeve in hot water.

NiteSite Viper - Multi diameter scope clamps

2 x scope clamps. 25mm and 30mm diameter clamps are included enabling mounting to most rifle scope body tubes. Larger scope clamp sizes are also available in 32mm and 34mm for bigger diameter scope body tubes.

NiteSite Viper -  Anti-recoil clamp

1 x adjustable anti-recoil clamp. The removable plastic clamp connects to the top of the scope clamp and ensures that the illuminator module stays firmly in the ‘T’ slot even during the most powerful recoil actions.

NiteSite Viper -  Anti-glare filters

1 x pack of five filters. Adhesive screen filters reduce screen glare to suit your environment and personal preferences. Multiple anti-glare filters can be used, progressively darkening the screen with each filter applied.

Questions on NiteSite Viper Short Range Night Vision Clipon - Black

Sort by Descending
  • From Curt at 11/16/15 3:42 PM

    • Q: From watching video, i question how this would work on a higher power rifle, such as a 30-06 or 308. It appears the butt is not well seated when the viper is used. That may be fine for low calibers, but wonder about higher. What is the thought on such use?

    • A: Hi Curt. Sorry for the delay. We wanted to make sure with the manufacturer. NiteSite clipons including the Viper are rated for 308 inclusive. Please let us know if you have any other questions.
