Night vision scopes are made to act much like routine ranges. They are targeting devices that give the user a benefit over typical iron sight. Night vision simply happens to be able to do that when the sun falls.
Night vision scopes deal with both multiplied and also unmagnified versions. Because night vision is a little bit more challenging than typical day scopes you can not achieve the same high degrees of zoom as a day scope.
Here is the review of the PARD NV008 Plus night vision scope, hope it could help you understand it more. Now, we’re talking about the PARD NV008 Night Vision Scope…
- 1W Red Dot Sight
- 5w LED infrared IR
- 200m Range in full darkness
- Wifi / APP(Andriod&IOS)
- 21mm Standard Rail Mount
As opposed to a true night vision scope that uses an intensifier tube to amplify ambient light, a digital scope works by converting an optical image into an electrical signal
through an image sensor.
The sensor has millions of tiny pixels that collect incoming light, registering the value of each pixel and converting that to an image on an LCD screen.
Compared to true night vision, digital scopes are considered more durable. They don’t suffer the prolonged effects of overexposure when used in direct daylight. They are also cheaper and a good option for those looking for an entry-level unit. We found that the digital color display worked considerably well on the range in the daylight. Hope this PARD NV008 Plus review could help you understand it more.
The picture in picture feature and the ability to change the reticle color and intensity made for easy target acquisition. Full setup and zeroing took just minutes to achieve a 1 ¾” group at 100m and with that, we were ready to test out its capabilities at night.
By the time we arrived at our hunting property to test the unit it was already pitch-black darkness and we were feeling excited. To extend our potential range we also added a long-range IR illuminator just to assess whether we could clearly view out to distances of 200-300m – we could!

The unit was fitted to a Tikka T3X CTR in .308 but we felt this was probably far too much gun for this scope. It may be better suited to a rimfire rifle.
For what it is, this unit is quite compact compared to other models on the market. Coming in at just 450 grams, the overall weight was actually less than the original scope on the rifle.
While we had a few minor issues in navigating our way through the use of this scope, some extra time to work out all its features and become more comfortable with its operation (including the Wi-Fi to smartphone feature) would have been advantageous. Hope this PARD NV008 Plus review could help you understand it more.
- Compact (without IR Illuminator fitted)
- Easy navigation menu
- Wifi to smartphone
- Digital day/night operation
- Off-center reticle
- Screen refresh lag (whiteout)
- Effective range
Digital night vision is similar to standard night vision in the fact that it does amplify the night. The difference is that digital night vision takes light and turns it into a signal. This signal is then displayed on a screen. This works very similarly to a camera. Digital night vision presents a good clear picture but has a limited range.
Digital night vision is roughly equivalent to Gen 1+ night vision. In my opinion, it’s clearer and it has the advantage of longer battery life, lower weight, smaller size, and some scopes can take photos and film video. Some scopes can connect to cameras as well. Digital night vision is unique but functions well.
Digital rifle scope Pard NV008 Plus is the best option for hunting and shooting. It has the lowest weight, affordable price, and nice image quality. It has no application for your smartphone and it is not possible to make wi-fi streaming from your scope. But the main crucial disadvantage of this scope is its eye relief – only 35mm. I am using centerfire rifles in .308 WIN and .30-06 SPR – this means they have some recoil. With 35 mm eye relief, I will injure my eye. Hope this PARD NV008 Plus review could help you understand it more.
The right night vision rifle scope for your needs should feature a high resolution and clear image and work well within the range you need. It needs to ergonomic and fit your style of hunting, and it should be designed for the conditions you’ll encounter, be that wet weather, extreme heat or cold and snow.
