Do night vision scopes use infrared?


Yes, many night vision scopes use infrared (IR) technology to enhance visibility in low-light or no-light conditions. Night vision devices, including scopes, work by capturing available ambient light (even very faint light) and amplifying it to create a visible image. In situations where there's not enough visible light, infrared light is used to illuminate the area.

Infrared light is outside the spectrum of visible light for humans, but it can still be detected by night vision devices. Some night vision scopes emit their own infrared light using built-in IR illuminators, while others can pick up ambient infrared light from other sources, such as the moon, stars, or artificial IR sources.

So, to answer your question, yes, night vision scopes often use infrared technology to enhance their effectiveness in low-light conditions.
