Pulsar Challenger GS 1x20 Night Vision Monocular
At the core of the Challenger GS line are specially designed R-contact optics and Gen Super/CF-Super image intensifier tubes which provide edge-to-edge resolution performance unparalleled in a budget consumer night vision product.
The Challenger GS 1x20 is fitted with a five-lens eyepiece that minimises distortion at the edges of the field of view and increases sharpness and contrast of the image. The soft rubber eyecup conceals the light emission from the tube thus permitting the user to stay unnoticed. The compact glass-reinforced plastic housing ensures high durability and reliability.
The Challenger range has an IP46 level of dust and water protection allowing it to be used in any level of precipitation.
The Challenger GS is operated by a single switch which activates the device and the integrated IR illuminator sequentially. This prevents the IR illuminator from activating accidentally.
This powerful night vision tool is equipped with two diametrically positioned tripod sockets which allow attachment to an optional head mount for observation with the left or right eye or on a tripod. These sockets also enable a higher powered IR illuminator to be fitted.
The Challenger GS 1x20 can be used as a night vision monocular, night vision goggles (if set up on a Head Mount; the device can be used either for the right or the left eye), and a night attachment for a day optical riflescope or a collimator sight. The body of the device is hermetically sealed which enables use in inclement weather (fog, heavy shower, dusty environment, sand storm etc.).
The Challenger GS 1x20 boasts a wide range of applications, such as nocturnal walks on foot or by bicycle, night orientation, hunting, guard of industrial facilities and private property, military and sports games, patrolling and rescue operations.
