Press Release

(400 grams) SOURCE: Rigel Optics DeWitt, Iowa. - Rigel Optics, the American leader in consumer night vision, has introduced the new Rigel 3250 compact night vision goggle to its product line. The Rigel 3250 compact model weighs only 0.88 lbs., making it the world's lightest Generation 1 dual-ocular night vision goggle, and is 20% lighter than any other Rigel series night vision goggle.

The Rigel 3250 is based on Rigel Optics' hallmark 3200 series dual ocular goggle. This new model features an IR illuminator, enhanced 30 lin./mm resolution, and a detachable optical chamber for use as a night vision binocular. Additional benefits of the Rigel 3250 include a built-in sensor system to protect the image intensifier tube from bright light, and automatic diopter adjustment. Due to the compact construction of the ocular chamber, the field of view on the Rigel 3250 is 30 degrees, less than the 37 degrees the Rigel 3200 model offers.

"This new extra light weight goggle will be of great utility to all consumer groups, both professionals who depend on night vision for their work, as well as outdoor enthusiasts who engage in nighttime wildlife viewing and other activities for extended periods of time," says Rochelle Callender of Rigel Optics.
