The RPNVG (Ruggedized Panning Night Vision Goggle) made by AB Nightvision is the panning derivative of the most durable binocular system, period. In an effort to achieve increased field of view, some users have begun to seek systems that allowed individual pods to be pointed outward. The RPNVG allows the user to increase the Field of View from 40 degrees to 65 degrees by quickly flipping from standard binocular to "pano" configurations. This is facilitated by fast interpupillary adjustment via a quick release/lock mechanism instead of the traditional worm drive along with a central pivoting detent.
While some users do seek this panning feature, users should understand that it comes with pros and cons and is not recommended for force on force applications and the standard configuration should be used where target acquisition and targeting are important, as the panning configuration lowers center resolution, affects collimation, and negates the benefits of sterescopic vision. It does however offer increased field of view for static applications such as observation, light hiking/camping, and other low intensity applications.
We only offer premium quality lenses with our systems from Carson Industries, and Rochester Precision Optics. Lenses are very important when it comes to image quality, and while lower quality lenses are still useable, lower quality lenses will result in lower perceived resolution, and higher perceived image distortion.

We are happy to offer Photonis 4G+ tubes on pre-order. Fulfillment is estimated for January 2023. 4G+ is the highest grade of tube offered by Photonis and is the choice for many European special military and police units. They have improved autogating, improved flare coatings, and significantly higher tube specs and quality of assembly over ECHO tubes.
4G+ Minimums are as follows:
FoM: 2200 or higher
SNR: 30 or higher
Resolution: 70 lp/mm or higher
