Victory NV 5.6x62 T* Night Vision Device
The specialist for night observation
The specialist for night observation
When night-time conditions push even the fastest classic binoculars to their limits, the Victory NV 5.6x62 T*, with its electronic residual light intensifier, comes into its own. Gain an insight into the behaviour of bats, birds and other shy, nocturnal creatures. Even a new moon poses no problems, as a clear, starry sky is enough to give the brightest, most detailed of images.
Here you find the top features of the Victory Night Vision.
The night vision device is based around a very high-performance Generation 2+ intensifier tube with approx. 20,000 x light amplification capacity. It contains a microchannel plate (MCP), which creates razor-sharp, high-contrast images. In terms of distortion and vignetting it is far superior to earlier generations of night vision devices. An integrated protective function ensures that strong light radiation (e.g. through the sudden appearance of car headlamps) will not cause any damage to the system. You can benefit from having the very latest technology at your side – outstanding expertise from Carl Zeiss.
The manually focussed, low light 62 mm lens collects all available light and bundles it onto the highly sensitive photocathode. Both the lens and the eyepiece use the cutting-edge Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating for maximum light efficiency. The waterproof and dirt-repellent LotuTec®coating gives you clear, unclouded vision. A perfect interplay of optics and electronics brings you the most wonderful natural observations in the night.
Both optics and mechanics are well protected in their rubber armour housing, which is waterproof and filled with nitrogen. A secure grip and individual, ergonomic operation is guaranteed by the fact that the leather wrist strap can be attached on either the left or the right, depending on whether you are left or right-handed.
If there is absolutely no light and no residual light either, the integrated IR LED can be activated at the touch of a button to provide bright images. The LED generates an infrared light that the eye cannot see, but which allows observation with the NV device to a distance of around 50 m. By using an adapter you can fit an additional torch with an IR filter, which illuminates distances of up to several hundred metres.
You can adjust the image brightness with ease using the plus and minus buttons on the binoculars. This way your eye can make out details without being dazzled. If the light conditions change in the course of your night-time excursion you can simply adjust the binoculars accordingly.
Markings in the field of view, similar to a reticle, give you the option of estimating your distance from the target.

The Victory NV 5.6x62 T* is suitable for
You can also use the additional light sources in the accessory range to further increase the brightness of the image. If the night-time impressions are to be kept, there are also practical solutions for mounting a camera.
The adaptor fits onto the tripod mount of the NV device and holds torches with a tube diameter of 1 inch.
This adaptor is needed in order to use the compact Mini-Maglite.
An SLR lens with a 55 mm filter thread can be fitted directly behind the eyepiece.
The reticle to estimate distance is new. This can also be used to support the dioptre adjustment. Furthermore, the outer glass surfaces are now also coated with the LotuTec® protective coating.
The night vision device naturally – like all other Carl Zeiss products – conforms to all legal requirements. This applies for ROHS guidelines just as it does for CE.
No, the tube will not be damaged immediately. However, contact with light should be avoided, because this may cause the lifecycle of the intensifier tube to be reduced.
Meaning of the abbreviations
Binoculars or spotting scopes with glasses that contain fluoride (FL) for sharper, higher contrast images with significantly reduced chromatic aberrations; Fluoride Lenses; a special, high-quality sub-category of the ED lenses
Previously used to designate Dialyt binoculars with rubber armour
ZEISS T* Multi-layer coating for extremely high transmission and low reflex susceptibility
ZEISS Multi-layer coating (multi coating)
P / P*
Phase correction coating on the roof prisms, which provide a higher resolution of the finest detail structures. All ZEISS binoculars with roof prisms use this coating
Previously used to designate binoculars that can be worn by people who wear glasses.
Now all ZEISS binoculars and spotting scope eyepieces are suitable for people who wear glasses, so the "B" designation is no longer used
Binoculars with mechanical image stabilisation
Extra low Dispersion = low chromatic aberrations
High Definition. HD is not a type of lens. Instead it describes the result of the ED lenses: very good resolution
High Transmission = lenses by Schott with very good transmission properties.
Smart Focus = Conventional binoculars require the focusing wheel to be turned 2.5 times in order to switch from the close focus to the maximum observation distance. The VICTORY SF only requires the wheel to be turned 1.8 times.
