Oh wow. Considering they have to attach to the Stedi-eye gyro stabilized binos
at $6400 also and you need two of those that you linked to at $5800 each, quite inaccessible to me for nearly $20,000 for image stabilized 12x binos. Plus you need to be a member of law enforcement or military.
But just imagine handheld gyro stabilized 12x night vision true binos.......would be completely awesome.
cnoct - to your statement about uncorrelated noise adding to the 3D effect - yes, I definitely think that was a contributor.
My experiments with BV's need some refinement to get down to F/5 and a better representation of signal without extra scintillations happening from the 2x barlow. Really is not ideal to view beam split signals at double the focal length, but yes, the amount the bifurcated optics in the PVS-7 degrade the image is obvious.
True binoscope use with dual monoculars would be much better. I have still not tried to get focus in my APM 100ED Semi-apo binocular telescope. I don't have much hope for the helical focusers though after not coming close in the 70mm binocular telescope, but maybe afocal digiscope style with a pair of 28mm RKE's would yield some great views. Just would be an awkward setup trying to clamp those to the RKE's. Binocular telescopes are not the same as binoscopes either. Very close, but BT's really are a low power instrument too. My own two BT's with standard eyepieces only truly good at about 16x - 50x max because of the prisms used and glass types for the twin scopes.
A borg binoscope with the 89ED telescopes used for the twin tubes and those nice EMS binobacks stuffed with two NVD Micros put in twin feathertouch focusers on the 89ED scopes would knock the socks off me for sure. It is a lightweight true binoscope too at around 16lbs.
They don't actually list the 89ED (Nozomi) there but that is the biggest available now I believe.

Price list - http://www.sciencece...prices/bino.htm
$5525 for 2" feathertouch focusers and 2" binobacks
But there too you are looking at nearly $20,000 if full price paid for everything.
Aahhh - one can dream about it though. It's not like I'm stuck with bad views in the meantime. I already spoil myself with such magnificent views with current equipment.
Hey, just realized with two monoculars already, really only about $6000 away from that dream!
