Bushnell Introduces a New Era of Night Vision
Optics with the Equinox Series

Overland Park, Kan. — The new Bushnell Equinox series of night vision monoculars bring unrivaled performance, even in zero ambient light. The Equinox series includes one Generation 1 and two digital models, all featuring rugged, water-resistant housings that meet IXP-4 waterproof specifications.

The compact 2x 28mm Generation 1 model features true two times power magnification and bright clear optics. It has a bright infrared (IR) illuminator and excellent battery life – up to six hours of use. At just under nine ounces, this compact and lightweight unit packs more intensity than many other Generation 1 devices.

The digital models are available in 4x 40mm and 6x 50mm configurations. They also feature outstanding optical clarity and offer users a unique feature called Dual Image Output, which allows users to switch from a black and white image to green with the press of a button. The black and white is optimal when some ambient light is available, either at dusk or dawn or under bright moonlight while the green screen is ideal for almost-dark to completely dark conditions. The human eye sees more shades of green than any other color, making the green image 30 percent more effective in dark conditions.

Both digital models have two integrated polarized filters to defuse the intense beam of light and make it more natural to the eye. The screen brightness and image contrast are both easily adjustable for optimal viewing.

Each device is tripod mountable and includes integrated accessory rails that facilitate the addition of a light to dramatically extend the viewing range. Equinox night vision monoculars are popular for wildlife watching, hunting, landowner security, or any other nighttime activity.
