Swarovski NC 2 night scope vs other systems

Hi,
I have a friend in my birding group who own an Swaro NC 2. It is amazing. Nevertheless, is there anybody able to explain me why it is so expensive? particularly compared to other light amplifiers devices? (Is it only because it is Swarovski brand? or is it a special technology?)
Thanks in advance and best regards
Yves

Apparently not sold anymore? Maybe it was too expensive.

On looking, it was a 3x Gen 2 monocular, selling for well over 4000 pounds.
That is indeed somewhat pricey. However, there is no comparable replacement available afaik. So maybe night observation is not yet ready for prime time.
