Get an insight into the fascinating world of nature even in the dark

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.

Intensifier tubes

The night vision device is based around a very high-performance Generation 2+ intensifier tube with approx. 20,000 x light amplification capacity.

High-resolution optics

A low light 62 mm lens collects all the available light and bundles it onto the highly sensitive photocathode.

Robust construction

Both optics and mechanics are well protected in their rubber armour housing, which is waterproof and filled with nitrogen for protection.

High-performance Generation 2+ intensifier tubes

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.

High-resolution, low light optics

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.

Ergonomic and robust construction

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.

Integrated IR LED

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.

Manual brightness regulation

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.

Reticle for estimating distances

Markings in the field of view, similar to a reticle, give you the option of estimating your distance from the target.

Victory NV 5.6x62 T*

The Victory NV 5.6 x 62 T* night vision device was created for observing nature at night. The powerful intensifier tube makes it possible for you to also observe animals in the middle of the night, providing razor-sharp images with lots of contrast. A perfect interaction of high-performance optics with the most up-to-date Carl Zeiss T* multi-layer coating and electronics ensures unforgettable observations of nature at night. The Victory NV 5.6 x 62 can be supplemented with a torch for use in extreme darkness. You can keep your best night-time nature observations forever, using the 55 mm filter thread for SLR lenses, which are fastened directly behind the eyepiece of the Victory NV 5.6 x 62 T*.

And then there was light

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.

Adapter for 1“-torch

The adaptor fits onto the tripod mount of the NV device and holds torches with a tube diameter of 1 inch.

Adapter for Mini-Maglite

This adaptor is needed in order to use the compact Mini-Maglite.

Camera adapter for SLR

An SLR lens with a 55 mm filter thread can be fitted directly behind the eyepiece.

Questions & Answers


What changes have been made to the previous night vision device?

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.


Is it now ROHS-compliant?

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.


Will it damage the tube if the Victory NV is held in the light or if the protective cap is not used during the day?

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.


What do the abbreviations mean?

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.
