What's Included?

Yukon Ranger, Protective carrying case, Neck strap, Car and wall AC adapter

Description

The Digital Ranger 5x42 is the next generation of night vision. The innovative approach that customers have come to expect from Yukon is evident in the Ranger's revolutionary digital night vision capabilities; the Ranger has the highest magnification available, and the clearest image, that you just can't get with traditional night vision. With the best edge-to-edge resolution on the market, the Ranger rivals the effectiveness of comparable Gen 2 and Gen 3 night vision devices at any range. The Stealth™ invisible IR illuminator ensures that the beam is invisible to watchful eyes at any range. What is most amazing about this device is that, unlike ordinary night vision, the Ranger can be used for daytime, as well as nighttime, operation without damaging the device. The Ranger is designed to be the most versatile unit available, with a durable, compact body and unique innovations including a direct video output for video recording or remote viewing. The Digital Ranger 5x42 is backed by Yukon's Limited Lifetime Warranty.

IR Illuminator
he Ranger is equipped with two independent built-in IR illuminators. One of them functions continuously and is designed for observation under ideal night viewing conditions of a quarter moon. The other high-powered IR illuminator is intended for observation of distant objects under low light conditions, including total darkness. The IR power of the latter can be smoothly adjusted and the IR light intensity level can be stored

 

Power Supply

The Ranger can operate on external power sources such as a vehicle's power grid (the device is equipped with a special output for that) or independently on AA batteries/accumulators.

 

Optics

The 42mm objective lens is distinguished by improved frequency and contrast characteristics. The objective lens made of high-quality optical glass is fully multi-coated.

 

Brightness Adjustment Wheel

In Ranger the image is shown on the Liquid Crystal Display (LCD). Manual adjustment of LCD brightness is operated with the adjustment wheel.


Video Recording

The direct built-in video recording output enables image transmission as well as video recording on peripheral equipment (monitor, etc.) while carrying out stationary or mobile observations.

    I have been looking for IR for the past couple of months and the Ranger got great reviews. WOW... There are billions of stars in the night sky that you cannot see without help. I have seen a couple of ufos and hundreds of satellites. The only drawback is the weight. It gets heavy and your neck hurts looking up. I've hooked up an LCD TV and a tripod. I am in the process of buying a portable recording device. If you want a beginners IR star gazing scope this is the one for you.

    Good price. The only thing that really bothered me but more of a courier issue is that the parcel was dropped on my doorstep where anyone could have snatched it.

      My husband enjoys watching all the wildlife crossing our property in the evenings from his "man barn". The images are clear and concise and was he ever surprised by some of the animals that make full use of the land in the later hours.

          not bad (kind of Granular Vision). Also the Plastic cover over the Non focusing lens litterally falls off... and I had to climb down a ravine to retrieve it and now HOLD IT ON WITH MY HAND WHILE USING. Will be sending this one Back .. and probably choose a better quality Mono

          Customer Q & A

          Q1: Can you use these during the day time as well?

          A: Yes, the Yukon Ranger 5x42 Digital Night Vision Monocular can be used during the day, as well as at night.

          Q2: What type of battery does the ranger digital night vision use?

          A: The Yukon Ranger uses 6 AA batteries.

          Q3: Can you see through tinted windows?

          A: You can see the same things with night vision devices that you can in daylight with the unaided eye. Since tinted glass prevents passage of visible light, it would also block infrared from the binoculars' illuminator. So, no, you cannot see through tinted glass unless you can in daylight.

          Q4: Can you use rechargeable batteries 6 x 1,2v=7,2v?

          A: Rechargeable AA's are the only rechargeable battery that will work with this unit. You can also power it with a car adapter or an AC adapter that plugs it into the wall.
