For years American Technologies Network Corp has been providing the consumer with state of the art night vision optics. ATN has earned a reputation for the highest quality product coupled with the best value (price). One could compare a fine optical unit to a top-notch swiss watch, or musical instrument where all of the parts are well thought out and work as one well-tuned masterpiece.
All Starlight technology Night Vision Devices consist of several main parts: an objective lens, an eyepiece, a power supply and an image intensifier tube (Photocathode Tube).
Night vision devices gather existing ambient light (starlight, moonlight or infra-red light) through the front lens. This light, which is made up of photons goes into a photocathode tube that changes the photons to electrons.
The electrons are then amplified to a much greater number through an electrical and chemical process.The electrons are then hurled against a phosphorus screen that changes the amplified electrons back into visible light that you see through the eyepiece. The image will now be a clear green- hued amplified re-creation of the scene you were observing.
