Hi!

 

I saw so many posts, fotos and videos with the Night Vision Optic from TeleVue. ( http://www.televue.c..._page.asp?id=36 )

It looks amazing! I love it!

 

Is there anything simular that I can buy in Austria (Europe).

I asked about the TeleVue Night Vision, but they told me that it's prohibited outside the USA.

 

Please help me,

I want Night Vision on my dobsonian telescope too!

 

Yours, Kathi (from Austria)

EAA can accomplish much the same sort thing and it is way cheaper to implement and not export restricted.

Yes quite a few night vision options in Europe. Have a look at pvs-14 (which work with the tnvc adapters) at www.actinblack.com or www.nighttec.net. More expensive than the US though.

Here is a report from using my european sourced night vision equipment. And I see it with my 16 inch f4 dob as well.

Hi,

I am based in UK and have night vision purchased from Luxembourg (actinblack).

 

Here are some threads to read...

Be prepared to spend anything up to 7000 euro for a top spec tube and pvs-14 device. Pay particular attention to the tube specs and post on here for advice.

 

Here is my device...

(my tube spec sheet is shown in the above post FYI - the tube spec is very important)

 

You can import the Televue/TNVC connector for the pvs-14 from USA without issues (but not the night vision device)

Please feel free to ask me any other questions...

There is the secondhand option, should still give you some reasonable views for a bit less. Feel free to ask questions, we’re still understanding the EU options. Hope you can join the Nebula party soon.
