Whether you are a hunter, in law enforcement, or part of a search and rescue team, you might be out when it's dark or in low light conditions. Certain conditions can make it a struggle to see what you are looking at or for. Make those unwanted conditions your advantage with either a set of night vision optics or thermal imagers. Image Intensification Night Vision scopes or optics use ambient light to operate and usually, the moon and stars provide enough light. If in an environment with no ambient light, IR illuminators can be used to produce enough light to make night vision operational. There are various night vision scopes that can accommodate your rifle setup. Certain night vision optics can be mounted in front of other optics if you find yourself transitioning from day to night shooting. Unlike night vision optics, thermal imagers do not use surrounding light to operate. Thermal imagers use a sensor to detect thermal energy radiation and produce an image on a screen. Various colors are used to represent the temperatures that objects give off. Like night vision optics there are several different thermal imaging devices that can suit your needs.
