What is Nightvision?
Traditional Night Vision, has been around for a long time and has progressed over several generations. The basic process is a special device inside of an optic, called an image intensifier tube, gathers ambient light through the lens of the optic and passes it through other electronics within the device onto a screen within the eyepiece. There’s obviously more to it than that but that’s basically the process. Night vision comes in several generations, however, all Firefield night vision is Gen 1. Generally speaking, the higher the generation and higher the specs, the better the image through the unit will look. Night vision is commonly presented to the user in green.
