              Comments about Bushnell 2.5x42 Night Vision Binoculars with Built-In IR:

              I was not expecting such a sharp image from these Generation 1 night vision binoculars. Even in pitch darkness the IR illuminator invisibly lights up the area for perfect viewing. It was very easy to rotate the objective rings to adjust for viewing distance and then fine-tune with the diopter rings for quite sharp focus.

              Every homeowner should have a pair to see just what goes bump in the night. One of the handiest items I've ever owned. So glad I bought these!

                True to the Bushnell reputation of fine optics, these night vision binoculars do the trick. They are excellent for night animal observation, surveillance, and boating. They are rubber coated and weather resistant. Top it off with a 2 year warranty!

                There is very good contrast in twilight and moonlit conditions and the IR illuminator lights up the viewing area like a spotlight.

                Comments about Bushnell 2.5x42 Night Vision Binoculars with Built-In IR:

                I looked at a lot of different night vision binoculars before I made this purchase. I am happy with the product and would recommend it. I am from Tucson and wanted to look at night desert animals in their environment. The colder the night the better the contrast. On a cool summer night I can see clearly rabbits at 50 yards and coyotes at 100+ yards. Beyond that I see eyes blinking at me but can't make out who or what it is. If you want to view something outside of 125 yards or so you may want to get something that has a larger illuminator and more magnification. I am pleased with my choice, it does what I hoped it would do.

                A: This binocular is a night vision binocular and can not be used in daylight hours. It is only designed for night use.

                A: The Bushnell 2.5x42 Night Vision Binoculars with Built-In IR's field of view is 94ft @ 1000 yds.

                Q4: Would the Bushnell Night Vision binocular be of value on a boat at night, looking for other boats?

                A: They would work quite well.  They can magnify at 2.5x and have a viewing distance of about 600 yards using the night vision.
