X-Sight HD II Smart Day and Night Vision Scopes

atn x-sight on a rifleThe ATN X-Sight II can instantly correct point of impact based on ballistic calculations, record video, take pictures, share photos, update via Wi-Fi and of course, gives the user both day and night vision.  Of course the operator can and should turn the Wi-Fi off when its not being used to update the firmware or run apps from a smart phone or tablet.

Your compass heading is shown at the top of the display, your roll is shown at the left side of the display and your pitch is shown at the right side of the display. Roll indicates that you are holding your weapon with the scope directly above the barrel or if you have your weapon leaning to your right or your left. Pitch indicates if your barrel is pointed up, down or level. Time and magnification is also displayed.

The ATN X-Sight II isn’t your average day or night vision scope. It’s smart. At the heart of the ATN X-Sight II beats the all new Obsidian II core. This powerful processor allows the ATN X-Sight II to pack in intelligence and features previously not seen in affordable day and night vision scopes.

The ATN X-Sight II also now has a profile manager, allowing one to save ballistic settings and the “zero” in a profile. Want to switch rifles or shoot at a different distance and be instantly zeroed in? Simply open the saved profile for that rifle or distance and instantly be on target.

The ATN X-Sight II now comes with a ballistic calculator that can take into account wind speed, range, incline and more while instantaneously making corrections to the reticle’s point of impact. .Those corrections are shown at the lower left corner of the display.

The ATN X-Sight II can also record videos and photos onto a MicroSD card and it comes with ATN’s new patented Recoil Activated Video (RAV). Operators will never forget to record that perfect shot. When the RAV feature is enabled, the system buffers everything the scope sees. As the trigger is squeezed, the recoil tells the scope to record what it saw before the shot was taken, the actual shot itself and as much video after the shot as preferred. Now the operator can focus on more important things than hitting the record button, like squeezing the trigger and keeping the reticle on the target.

Other unique features include the E-Barometer, Gyroscope and E-Compass. Activating the built-in gyroscope and image stabilization gives operators a smooth image that makes it easier than ever to spot targets. The E-Compass lets operators know exactly what direction to head in order to move a little closer and get a better shot at the target. The ATN X-Sight II is also Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (4.1) enabled so the operator can connect his or her phone or tablet and view everything the scope sees on a mobile device.

X-Sight at night and light levels.

  • The X-Sight II Scope does not have the same ability to amplify very low levels of light that a photocathode type of scope has. Therefore, in very low light, you would turn on the long range 850 mW infra-red illuminator that comes with the scopes. In low light, when the illuminator is turned on, The X-Sight Scope's light capturing ability is comparable to a second generation photocathode type of scope using the same IR light.
  • X-Sight II resolution is lower than that of photocathode scopes. It is measured in pixels not lines per millimeter.
  • As with any night vision device, some light (moonlight, starlight, IR flash light, etc.) is required to operate. The level of equipment performance depends upon the level of light.
  • Starlight and moonlight are reduced by clouds.
  • Starlight and moonlight are also reduced by trees and buildings and anything else which creates shadows. X-Sight is less effective when viewing into shadows and other darkened areas.
  • X-Sight II is less effective when viewing through the rain, fog, sleet, snow or smoke. X-Sight will not “see” through dense smoke.
  • With X-Sight II in night mode you see shades of green or shades of grey depending on the type of display.
  • As with any night vision device, you are always looking for contrasts and movement.
