Optics maker Meopta announced the new MeoNight 1.1 — a night vision platform that is able to be used as a night vision monocular or alongside a riflescope.

The MeoNight works alongside riflescopes, sitting in front of scope via Meopta’s quick release NAR mount. The MeoNight can also be mounted directly onto the objective of the riflescope using Meopta’s custom adapter for 42mm, 50mm or 56mm objective lenses. Shipping with a remote-control cable, image brightness can be adjusted without requiring the shooter to remove his or her trigger finger from the trigger.

Able to detect targets out to 600 meters, the MeoNight 1.1 features external brightness controls that allow for adjustment of  intensity. In addition, the device shuts off if unused for an hour to preserve battery life. The battery provides a total of 50 hours of run-time.

Waterproof, shock resistant and fog-proof, the night vision device comes with the battery, Allen keys, protector, sleeve, eyepiece eyecup and remote control in addition to a Picatinny rail, bag and grip/hand strap.

The MeoNight offers a price tag of $1,499.
