The Yukon Ranger 5x42 LT Digital Night Vision Monocular Scope is a fundamentally new night vision device with a number of unique advantageous features that came as a result of modern optical and digital technologies. Being quite different from the Gen.1 devices, the Yukon Ranger 5x42 LT Digital NV Monocular w/ LCD Display can surely compete with the Gen.2 in image sharpness and brightness. The device's IR-illuminator operates in the remote field of the IR-range (940nm), invisible by the unaided eye and has a gradual power intensity adjustment function and memorization of a fixed emanation level. The Yukon Ranger 5x42 LT IR Illuminator Digital Night Vision Monocular Scope is fully self-contained (powered with six AA batteries) but can also operate on external sources. With the adjustment wheel on the front panel one can choose the suitable brightness level of the display. The Yukon Ranger Digital Night Vision Monocular w/ Built-in Video also features outputs for direct video recording. Consumers now have the power to record night-time activities to a degree far superior than any video or surveillance system available.
