This is a high end generation-3 thin filmed night vision device. It can be used as an eyepiece with the included c-mount to 1.25" barrel adapter or as a 1x handheld telescope with the included objective lens. It takes only a few seconds to swap between these modes.
The included objective lens (ENVIS) is supplied with a 1.25" filter adapter in place, so you can simply screw your filter onto the end of the lens.
As an eyepiece, this device has an effective focal length of about 28mm.

Specs are as follows:
Phosphor: P43 (green)
Signal to noise ratio: 30.0
Photocathode response: 2502
EBI: 0.98
Resolution: 64 lp/mm
Luminance gain: 68,671

This device is truly incredible. With a hydrogen alpha filter, emission nebulas take on a near-photographic appearance. I have viewed the Pillars of Creation in M16, the Elephant Trunk formation in IC1396, the Rosette, the Horsehead, and dozens of other objects in splendid detail from my orange-zone back yard. Starfields, especially the Milky Way, are unbelievably enhanced. You can easily see 10x more stars with this device than with ordinary eyepieces. I have found that galaxies are enhanced as well, though to a lesser extent. But I have seen, from my back yard, obvious spiral structure in M51 and some of the brighter Messier galaxies as well as NGC 7331 and 2903. The Deer Lick group is obvious and easy. Edge-on galaxies are particularly enhanced. NGC 891 is mind-blowing with night vision but is undetectable from my home otherwise.
I can post pics of this device later this evening. It is in mint condition and has been used with great care.

I'm only selling the device to fund an upgrade to a night vision binocular system.
