    OPERATION: The glasses have an infrared detector disc that glows emerald green when an infrared light source hits the lenses. Special Forces wearing night vision devices, such as the AN/PVS7-B goggles, typically use these infrared illuminators. To go to infrared detection mode you simply turn a cone shaped button on the left side in order to rotate a detection disc or filter into the left side viewer. Vision is maintained in the right ocular. To improve color contrast under certain light conditions the glasses are equipped with lens filters (included), which snap into the ocular lens housing. There is also a range-finding grid in the right ocular used to determine distance to an object. In low light conditions, the tick marks are hard to see since they are black. To overcome this, the ranging grid can be illuminated with an illuminator device and power supply.
    Note:What you see in the picture is all that comes with the Bino's

    will trade for good long range scope
