ATN® ARES 6-3 Night Vision Weapon Sight. 6X zoom. Mil-std. Gen 3 image tube technology. Outstanding 100% waterproof toughness!

The ARES 6-3 combines a solid-state 3rd-Generation image intensifier tube with 100% waterproof, field-tough optics for exceptional performance in any light conditions. The fast, infrared-sensitive optics and military-standard Gen 3 image tube make for easy target acquisition, whether you're a professional operator or a dedicated varmint hunter.

The red-on-green reticle system provides optimal contrast against dark and light targets alike, while 1/6 MOA windage and elevation adjustments let you really dial in with precision accuracy. A detachable IR illuminator provides invisible light when natural light is scarce.

A note on 3rd Generation image intensifier tube technology...

By adding the sensitive chemical gallium arsenide to the photocathode, a brighter and sharper image has been achieved over 2nd Generation units. An ion barrier film is also added to increase tube life. 3rd-Gen. provides the user with good to excellent low light performance. ATN's 3rd-Gen. IITs have a micro channel plate, GaAs photocathode, and a completely self-contained integral high-voltage power supply. These 3rd Generation tubes provide a combined increase in resolution, signal to noise and photosensitivity over tubes with a multi-alkali photocathode. Generation 3 is the standard for the USA military.
