Hi,

While I admire the versatility of some of the other BVs out there I like the TV's "keep it simple" configuration. The 2X amplifier is simple and very effective but there are other solutions such as Siebert OCAs and a simple Meade 140 Barlow screwed into the nosepiece for variable power. I have never needed to adjust the dipoters on my Denks so I don't miss them on the TV.

Clear Skies,

Steve

Another Night Vision Binoviewer. This is a PVS-7B/D housing with a single intensifier tube and TWO eyepieces with adjustable IPD. A c-mount adapter replaces the standard 1X objective and allows connection to any telescope:

Here's a 3rd Night Vision binoviewer method. A matched pair of Gen 3 Micro Monoculars in a Baader Mark V. DSO's are real easy with this setup.
