ATN® ARES 2-HPT 2X Night Vision Weapon Sight with HPT image tube for increased sensitivity and higher resolution vs. current Gen 2 technology.
The ARES combines a solid-state HPT image intensifier tube with 100% waterproof, field-tough optics for exceptional performance in any light conditions. The fast, infrared-sensitive optics and Gen-3-equivalent 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.
Here's a little more on HPT image technology...
An upgrade over current CGT Gen 2 IITs, the HPT image intensifier tube is a multi-alkali, compact 18mm format, MCP image intensifier. The HPT tube increases sensitivity, resolution, Signal-to-Noise Ratio (SNR), and the Modulation Transfer Function (MTF). These improvements produce an exceptional image clarity and brightness. Most HPT specifications typically are equivalent to standard 3rd Generation.Features:
