I am selling my Micro Monocular by Night Vision for $2800 shipped, (new cost is $3295.00). I am the second owner, but I only put maybe another hour or hour and a half on it. Why am I selling, and why so little time on it?? It is simple. I moved too far north, and it does not get dark until late, midnight around the solstice, and I am not a big fan of cold and winter.

This is a Micro Monocular housing (by Night Vision Depot) fitted with an ITT Mil Grade HP+ (high performance) Gen 3 thin-film image intensifier tube. The image tube has been carefully chosen for astronomy applications (high SNR, low EBI).
This unit can be used in two ways:

1) As an image intensified monocular for one power views of the sky or environs using the supplied 25mm f1.3 objective lens - great for meteor watching (even in the city!)

2) As an image intensified telescope eyepiece for deep sky objects - using the supplied 1.25-inch telescope adapter in place of the 25mm objective. Globular clusters will look like photographs.

The MilSpec ocular on this monocular provides crisp views to the eye (sharp from center to edge of FOV) due to its special design which accounts for the curved surface of the image tube's output screen. Diopter adjustment works from -6 to +2.

The front of the monocular housing has a female c-mount interface that is highly versatile in that it allows adaptation to a wide variety of accessories and camera lenses provided that a proper c-mount adapter is acquired. No additional adapters are included in the sale.

Condition: Gently used, but like new. Image tube is very clean. Tube has less than 100 hrs of use.
