NV Monoculars are just one of several options for people who wish to see clearly in the dark. These Russian-manufactured items sell for AUS$459 and AUS$506 respectively - we tried them out and were amazed at how well it was possible to see in pitch black conditions. Who can use night vision - pig shooters, farmers, animal watchers and hunters all find them invaluable. There are also apparently great for being able to pick out your cray pots in the distance on a dark night, and they're also popular tools in neighbourhood disputes.
