NV Frequently Asked Questions:

How is viewing through NV different than viewing through conventional eyepieces?

“DIY Intensified IIT setup for around $200 project.” Started by cj7hawk, Sept 07, 2011

NV Buyer’s Guide

 

should go under new heading of DIY project examples. This is a long thread on DIY eyepiece using gen 1 cascade (ABC) tubes. Either EEV or Varo tubes

 

The historical aspect of this thread in regards to Night Vision Astronomy is also pretty cool. Pay attention to mention of amber filter over ocular in regards to scintillation noise.

afocal photos from jdbastro. Some insights from Glenn LeDrew on turning gain down to reduce scintillation and give smoother appearance.

Thanks to all those who worked hard on this nice initiative.

 

One small suggestion: if I understand correctly, that this is the place where the suggestions for inclusion in the pinned threads are presented, then I feel it would be helpful especially for new forum members to edit the intro to the "Best of NV candidates" as follows, for example (suggestions in bold font):

 

This is the starting point for finding comprehensive information about NV.  Each of the topics below link will bring you to sections containing links with detailed information.  Unless seeking answers to specific questions, it is best to start at the top and work your way through the various links that are all titled; most are also dated by the year the information was posted. All threads are locked, except for the “Best of NV candidates”, which is the place where proposals for inclusion in the locked threads can be presented.

If those more expert than me agree, this seems to be a very short and good explanation about EBI. Thanks to forum member Luis Serrano who originally posted it.

Maybe for the NV Introduction?

A wealth of NV videos from Carpe Nocturnum!

 

Hopefully I will find time this week to view them all.

The following links have been referred to CN Admin to be added to the locked threads (this may take a few days)

When in doubt about where these suggestions will go, I'll place them into the Miscellaneous section until we have enough (4-5) links about similar topics to start a new section.  I'm thinking that we already need a section specifically about NV Image Intensifier Tubes where some of these links might fit together in a more cohesive way... rather than trying to fit them into an existing section where they would be an outlier.  

 

Dmala, your amendment to the opening paragraph in the BEST of NV thread was also forwarded for inclusion.

Thanks to each of you for the valuable contributions.

Thank you! I just used the Best of to learn a bit about 3x lenses, and other topics prior to that, so the whole thing is being put to use.
