Where to go to get info on night vision
« on: November 25, 2020, 12:49:44 PM »
I am interested in learning more about night vision equipment.

I know very little and I am trying to figure out where to start. 

Does anyone have insights or good sources of info?

Uses:
-Looking at things a civilian can purchase
-Interested in something for nighttime navigation (walking, driving, etc)
-Night time predator/hog hunting (where legal)
-Not really thinking about prices or anything - I just want to understand the technology.

Some initial questions
-What are the benefits of the different Generations?
-I assume a head mounted monoscope is probably the best - how does this work with firearms?  How is the flash suppressed to not blind/destroy night vision?
