As a simple visual observer who is using a night vision device attached to a Televue eyepiece ( "afocal" ) approach to observing, it seems odd that this is being grouped together with EAA astronomy.
In my observing sessions there are no cameras or post processing of images when back inside in the warm.
My observing is done at the eyepiece with observing notes taken on paper, even the creation of sketches on paper of what I have seen.
Sure, the military night vision device enables me to go beyond the seeing limitation of my human eyes but surely my 20" mirror is doing exactly the same in allowing me to see more than just with my eyeball.
I would like to vote for a new forum to be created just for night vision astronomy, if you agree then maybe you can state your own personal position below in this thread?
Thanks for looking,
