It is just a fancy monacle?

No, a monocle is an eye glass for one eye.

This is a monocular image intensifier. Monocular being used with one eye (as opposed to a binocular version which would use both eyes).

An image intensifier, unlike traditional monoculars or binoculars has no light-path from front (objective lens) to rear (eyepiece). It is more like a video camera, a lens, a load of electronics in the middle, and a screen just behind the eyepiece to show the image.

What little light there is goes in, get amplified or intensified by the electronics and then is shown in the eyepiece.

Image intensifiers can only be used in very low light, moonlight is ideal. Whereas the human eye could probably see quite well looking over fields under a bright full moon, if you wanted to see a fox under a hedge it would be almost impossible, an image intensifier will take what light there is and allow you to see the fox. There are limits, the item shown on this page is good for distances up to 100 metres or so, other units are more sensitive and can see much further (but are much more expensive)
