Sherwoods Photographic Ltd provide a wide range of
Night Vision Binoculars and Night Vision Monoculars
With a comprehensive range of different magnifications the Yukon NVMT's are perfect for wildlife observations, spotting game, hunting and surveillance. Small and light enough enough to fit in a pocket or rucksack and available in either a range of non water resistant &, water resistant. Both are ergonomically designed with a rubber armored body. The NVMT range features a Yukon Certified Gen 1 image intensifier tube and multicoated objective lens, partnered with Yukon’s special multicoated optics, bring a crispness and clarity to the nighttime experience.
The Hawke Digital NV Monocular can be used for observation in complete darkness or low light conditions. The monocular can be used to take photos or capture video during the day or at night. It features a fixed 5x optical zoom and up to 8x digital zoom.
The Digital NV monocular is the perfect optical device to enhance your vision at night. A built-in illuminated provides additional light when in darker conditions. The infrared strength can be adjusted to suit your situation.
Night Vision - How it works
Light (like moonlight or starlight) coming into the device from the direction of the object is gathered by the objective lens and focused onto the Image Intensifier Tube.
The front of the Image Intensifier Tube contains a photocathode which converts light into electrons. The device contains a very high voltage power supply, which converts the 3 volts supplied by the batteries into 17 kilovolts.
The high voltage hurls the electrons into the phosphorous screen. The phosphorous screen illuminates with an image when struck by electrons. The eyepiece optic then focuses the phosphorous screen image to your eye
Your Night Vision device works by amplifying available natural light. In complete darkness, with no available natural light, you cannot see without the use of the Infrared Illuminator (IR). The IR works like a flashlight, but is invisible to human and animal eyes.
A half-moon provides a substantial amount of ambient light to be amplified by the internal Electronic Intensifier Tube. Without the assistance of the IR, you can recognize a man-sized object about 100 yards away.
A quarter-moon provides the minimal amount of ambient light to allow viewing unassisted by the IR. Without the IR illuminated, a man-sized object can be recognized about 60 yards away. With the IR illuminated, this distance is more than 100 yards. The IR will greatly improve target recognition.
Urban Environment (with man-made light sources)
Streetlights and headlights will generally not damage the Electronic Intensifier Tube, if a safe distance away. As a precaution, do not point the device directly into a light source. At a distance of more than 30 yards, most common man-made light sources will generally not damage the device though it is still not recomend that a device be pointed toward them..
