    I'm not aware of a specific benchmark, because there are so many variables. Are the opponent's pupils already dilated, or constricted?:wow: Is it happening at high noon on a sunny day, or in pitch darkness? Hell, with my luck, my opponent will be wearing welder's goggles.:cool:

    For a more specific answer, I'll refer you to the resident night vision source, the GATE section on Night Vision.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help,
    Mas
