This Night Owl Discovery night vision monocular is highly versatile and includes a powerful integrated infrared illuminator and compact, lightweight portability. Features soft-touch control buttons, power and IR indicators and an ergonomic design that comfortably fits in one hand.
The Night Owl Discovery night vision-scope has an ergonomic and attractive new compact design. Its hand-cradle gives you easy, comfortable yet secure one-handed operational use. This monocular is extremely versatile and incorporates a powerful built-in infrared illuminator and a tripod mount into a lightweight and compact body. Night Owl used their standard five-element glass for both the oculars and the objective lenses, giving you a condensed lens and brighter images. This monocular also features soft-touch control buttons, power and IR indicators. It requires two AA batteries to operate.

Warranty does not cover misuse of product.

Also, there is too much "noise" in the image, thus making it very difficult to recognize the object that you are viewing.
The IR makes the field of vision even smaller.
Overall I did not find this device useful even for ordinary pleasure viewing.
By the way, if you own a camcorder with night-view, you already know how how the objects look in the dark. You can use your camcorder's night view feature instead of buying this expensive device
My only concerns are about how long it will last and hold up. Light damages this type of technology if handled improperly, and I'm hoping that generally careful use and no abuse will keep this thing purring for a long time. The power source is convenient too --- two double AA's are all you need.
Another strange requirement of the instrument is that the batteries are recommended to be removed if not used for 24 hours.
Other than the above, the monocular has performed well.
