I guessing,NV stands for Night Vision!

Anything that you really want to use for hunting should be at least Gen 3,the Gen 1 & 2 stuff really doesn't work that well in my opinion.

I just got my NV up and running this season.

I use a lot of IR illuminators of different kinds to make it easier. On me, on the rifle, on things I stash, etc.

NV=night vision and I haven't made up my mind as far as goggles or scope, both are priced high for gen 3.

You do get what you pay for with Night Vision,the cheap stuff's around $4K and the good stuff will run you $8-10K for Gen 3.
Themal Imaging gear will run you a whole lot more!

I would recommend a scope. Like a starlight. The goggles completely destroy depth perception.

I have a Gen 3 Intevac Nitemate Nav 3 night vision monocular for sale. It is a great unit. The one I have works great, good resolution, it has an IR illuminator. It uses a Litton tube (not the desired tube for a scope application because they don't handle the recoil as well as the ITT tubes do). I am pretty sure it can be mounted on a helmet and I probably have the helmet mounting brackets (almost positive I do). I'm looking to get $2500 for it with an operators manual and all the accessories I can find. Here is a pic

Oh, and you have absolutely no depth perception with this thing. it is like using a video camera on one eye and trying to navigate with it. I have tried a binocular NV set but not on a trail or anything.
