Optics4Birding Discusses Benefits of Night Vision
The president of Optics4Birding, the birding equipment retailer, talks about the benefits and history of night vision scopes for birding activities.
Optics4Birding, one of the nation’s largest birding equipment retailers, knows that birding activities don’t have to stop once the sun goes down. Many dedicated birdwatchers know that night vision scopes open up a whole new world, allowing them to observe birds they may not see during the daytime. “Night vision equipment is crucial for some bird species,” says Daniel Lockshaw, president of the company. “Nocturnal birds, especially owls and shorebirds, are incredibly active in the dark, and this equipment gives birders the chance to witness the hunting behaviors of these fascinating creatures.” To learn more about the company’s line of night vision scopes for birding, visit http://www.optics4birding.com/nightvision.aspx/
In existence since World War II, night vision equipment falls into two major types: passive “starlight” scopes that amplify available light from the moon and stars, and active scopes that use infrared light sources to illuminate targets. Night vision devices are classified by generations, with the most recent optics designated “Gen III”. While first-generation starlight scopes are affordable for beginner birders, the more-advanced active scopes offer far better resolution, especially when coupled with the superior optic lenses most feature. These scopes are also useful for birders in low ambient light conditions, such as on moonless or overcast nights. Daniel’s company offers a wide range of night vision scopes, including affordable monoculars, Gen II binoculars, and military-grade magnifying lenses. A host of accessories is also available from the company, with camera adapters, digital viewers, and infrared illuminators among the many products birders can use for nighttime observation.
Optics4Birding was founded by a group of birders, tour operators, and bird researchers to provide high-quality field equipment to enthusiasts. Along with the night vision scopes the company carries, they also offer a huge selection of daytime equipment, including binoculars, spotting scopes, and tripods. The company carries some of the most popular optics brands, with Nikon, Leica, Zeiss, and Bushnell optics among the more popular choices. Each product the company carries is hand-selected for quality, giving birders the best equipment choices at some of the best prices available on the web. “Our company is dedicated to providing quality equipment at prices to suit any budget,” adds Daniel. “Our range of night vision scopes give birders the chance to get out after dark and see things others can only dream about.” To learn more about the range of products the company carries, visit http://www.optics4birding.com/
