The ATN Night Arrow2-2 from ATN is a Gen 2+ with 2X magnification rugged night vision weapon sight are simple and easy to operate one-knob operation with automatic brightness keep watch over, illuminated center red reticle, and red on green reticle system.
The Night Arrow 2-2 is a rugged night vision weapon sight that permits you to hopefully observe your prey, acquire the target, and aim. In consequence, the 2x magnification sight is a perfect choice for the demanding hunter or sports shooter. The sight is outfitted with a “red on green” reticle system, with an illuminated red center crosshair that provides optimal contrast against the green night-vision background. The reticle makes it imaginable to identify and lock on targets even in complete darkness. The sight also offers an automatic brightness keep watch over (ABC) to give protection to the tube, along side a single knob for easy operation. And thanks to the rugged, nitrogen-sealed housing, the sight is water- and fog-resistant. The lightweight, compact sight–which mounts to standard weaver rails–operates on a single AA battery and carries a limited two-year warranty.
The Night Arrow’s “red on green” reticle system permits you to lock on targets in complete darkness.
How Night Vision Works
All ATN night vision devices consist of several main parts: an objective lens, an eyepiece, a power supply, and an image intensifier tube (photocathode tube). The devices function by gathering existing ambient light, such as starlight, moonlight, or infrared light, through the front lens. This light, which is made up of photons, goes into the photocathode tube and is converted into electrons. Next, the device amplifies the electrons to a much greater number through an electrical and chemical process, and then hurls them against a phosphorous screen that changes them back into visible light. The image will appear through the eyepiece as a clear, black-and-white or green-hued, amplified re-creation of the scene you were observing.
All night vision devices need some light to amplify. That’s why all ATN night vision devices have a built-in infrared illuminator (IRI). An IRI essentially throws out a beam of infrared light that may be near invisible to the naked eye, but your night vision device can see it. This permits you to use your scope even in total darkness. The IRI works like a flashlight, which is why the distance You’ll see with it is limited. Despite the fact that ATN IRIs extend out to 100 yards, the IRI may cover only 40 to 60 percent of the viewing area.
How Far Can You See?
There are lots of different variables that can have an effect on the distance you see with a night vision device. First, what are you trying to see? Are you on the lookout for another boat on the water or are you on the lookout for a rabbit in the woods? The larger the object, the easier it is to see. Plus, are you trying to see details (commonly known as “recognition range”), or are you just trying to see if something is there? Maybe you’ll see just the movement, but will not be able to decide 100 percent who are what it is. This is known as “detection range.” Another variable is lighting conditions. The more ambient light you have, the better and further it is possible for you to to see. You’ll all the time see further on a night where the moon and stars are out than if it’s cloudy and overcast. ATN generally states that You’ll tell the difference between a female and male or a dog and a deer at about 75 to 100 yards. Then again, if you were having a look across an open field and there used to be a half moon out, it’s essential to see a barn or a house 500 yards away.
