We spent 26 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top choices for this wiki. Once the sun goes down, it's time to stop shooting, right? Not if you have one of these night vision scopes. Using either thermal imaging or active illumination technology, these optics make the night come alive, allowing you to see every animal in your surrounding area. While they're perfect for hunters, home security experts and wildlife enthusiasts will find plenty of use for them, as well.

Editor's Notes

November 07, 2018:

The problem with many night vision scopes is that they perform poorly in well-lit conditions, so we focused on models that function well in any environment. Several options that narrowly missed making the list suffered from poor image quality and durability concerns.

After getting his bachelor’s from the University of Texas, Quincy Miller moved out to Los Angeles, where he soon found work as a copywriter and researcher, specializing in health and wellness topics for a major online media brand. Quincy is also knowledgeable about home improvement, as he’s had extensive experience with everything from insulation to power tools to emergency room trips, sometimes in that order. Sharing a home with three dogs and a couple of cats has forced Quincy to learn as much as he can about pet supplies, animal nutrition and, most importantly, the best ways to tackle the mountains of fur that accumulate in every corner of your home.
