In this case, the model comes with an infrared illuminator that allows you to use the monocular as a surveillance unit, or simply, for examining your surroundings in low light or no light conditions. As it has a 3x magnification, the monocular allows you to bring subjects close to you, and it can identify targets that are located up to 328 feet away from you. As far as the infrared illuminator is concerned, you will get excellent performance; for proper usage of the magnification feature, make sure to use the provided user manual.

This Barska monocular is compact, so you will not have any problems with moving it around. Also, it is lightweight, compared to other models in the same category, which can be seen as a great plus by those who are interested in a piece of equipment that they can have easy access to without any bother. One of the most significant advantages, however, is the fact that you can use this monocular to take pictures, and even record videos.
