U.S. Vietnam-Era Starlite Scope and Case

First generation passive devices, introduced during the Vietnam War were an adaptation of earlier active GEN 0 technology, and rely on ambient light instead of an infrared light source. Using an S-20 photocathode, their image intensifiers produce a light amplification of around 1,000 times, but are quite bulky and require moonlight to function properly. During service this scope was sold to Israel and is in a Israeli marked case.

Condition:Very good.

Estimate: $500 - $1,000
