A night vision device works by taking existing light, whether infra-red, moonlight or starlight, and changing it into visible light. This visible light is amplified to the point where it may be viewed in the device?s eyepiece. The process, where the existing light (made up of photons) moves through a photocathode tube, changes to electrons that are electro-chemically amplified and then driven against a phosphorus screen to return them to visible light, gives the final image a green hue. Night vision devices are referred to by what "Generation" they are. Each generation has a different type of intensifier tube.

1st Generation amplifies light several thousand times. The image will generally be sharp in the center and slightly blurry around the edges, allowing wildlife observation or for general security use. A 1st generation will hum when on, it may continue to glow for some time after it is turned off, but is the least expensive type of night vision device.
Recognition of a deer on a cloudy night is possible at 75 yards using a 1st generation unit.

Whoever buys this (awesome) scope should be sure to detach the IR illuminator.
