Meopta has introduced the MeoNight 1.1, a night vision attachment that can be used either as monocular for stand-alone viewing, or with a riflescope for nighttime operations.
Boasting 1x magnification, the MeoNight 1.1 is available with an optional 3x magnifying module booster. According to the presser, it’s also capable of detecting targets out to 600 meters and shuts off if it hasn’t been used for an hour. The device features an external brightness control for image intensity adjustment.
If you want to use the MeoNight 1.1 with a daytime riflescope, place it in front of the scope using Meopta’s quick-release NAR (MIL-STD 1913) mount, or mount it directly onto the riflescope’s objective lens with the company’s adapter for 42mm, 50mm and 56mm objective lenses. In addition, the MeoNight ships with a remote-control cable that you attach to the rifle’s stock in order to adjust the brightness if the image without having to go through the trouble of moving your finger from the trigger.
Shipping out with a battery, Allen keys, protector, sleeve, eyepiece eyecup, remote control, Picatinny rail, bag and grip/hand strap, the MeoNight is waterproof, shock resistant and fog proof. In other words, it’s built to withstand harsh conditions.
If you want to buy a Meopta MeoNight 1.1, the MSRP is a cool $4,499.
