Is there such a thing as a rule against Too Much Fun? If there is, please don’t anyone tell Axeon Optics about it, because their new Axeon NightVue sounds like a terrific time for nature watchers everywhere. It’s a green laser illuminator that you can mount on your standard binocular that essentially transforms it into night vision. It works with most porro- and roof-prism binos, and the way it works is that it beams a powerful green laser out to 250 meters (that’s 273 Freedom Units, aka yards). With it, you’ll be able to see at night … but it won’t bother the critters you’re watching.

If you weren’t aware, green encompasses the spectrum of light that is easiest for the human eye to see. (If you think about it, it makes sense; the “g” in ROYGBIV is right in the middle of the full visible light spectrum.) That’s part of why green laser-sighting systems have become all the rage in recent years. With the NightVue, that green color cuts through haze and fog, but it’s eye-safe, meaning it will have a minimal effect on your nighttime vision. What’s more, it doesn’t disturb any animals in its path.

Setting the Axeon NightVue up is easy; they include hardware to mount it to your binocular. Once you’ve done that, just use the beam adjustment wheel to adjust the angle of the light output to closely match the magnification range of the binoculars and distance of the subject from you. The locking knob on the mounting stem can be loosened so the green laser beam can be aligned with the line of sight of the binoculars.

The Axeon NightVue has both a weather-sealed body and USB charging port located on the bottom side of the back portion of the light. The MSRP is listed as $149.99, but at the time of this writing was available on the Axeon website at $99.99. Click here to learn more, or to order!
