A few years ago we met this bloke at Tennant Creek camped at the pebbles.
He was some sort of Gov. bloke, had a set of night vision binoculars as part of his kit.

Gave me a peep through them and WHAT?? the clarity, detail was incredible. Stalks of grass at 75m+, rocks in vivid detail, it went on, I was Impressed!!

When asked about the cost of such a piece his reply was, this was a mid range binocular in the scheme of things, about $9000.

My immediate thought was "what the hell, he who dies with the most toys has to win"
No, I still don't have one.........

Have a look in the SSAA sporting shooters magazine. There are usually a few adverts in there for ex military and some new types.

From memory prices seem to range from about $500-$4500 or so.

Monocular versions, like a telescope, with 4x magnification are available from China for ~$250 delivered. We haven't got round to getting a pair yet, but they look like a fun thing to have out back.
