I posted smg into the Equipment forum, but i suppose it’d be more logical to poste here...
Reading for months CN’s posts in this particular forum (and for many (many) more years more generally) i have been influenced by many of you for a pretty long time (thanks to everyone by the way, so much informations and feedbacks...its priceless).
I now do have a question for you today. One question before to jump in NV’s world...
Yes, after almost 2 years, im on my way to get my first NV. But before that jump, i do have to choose between a mono or binocular (goggle)... Thats why i first posted in this particular thread started by Eddgie in 2016.
In my dreams, the perfect set up was a monocular, to use with and without my refractor: with my TV 76mm and a 55MM plossl to get it faster, and without, ideally using a Nikkor lens or smg similar (i suppose i will use the monocular by hand much more often, for its simplicity of use). I love the grab n go (pocket) concept of the monocular (i have one Leica for day time); easy to take, easy to use, easy to travel with.
But now, i have to make a choice : Jonathan, that some of you must know (from the french OVNI NV seller: https://oculaire-vis....jimdofree.com/ ) asked me to chose between two options/NV setups :
> His OVNI-O (second hand NV) in monocular version :
Lighter, ‘cheaper’, with C-Mount adaptator
> And a binocluar version of its OVNI-O (still second hand) :
More expensive, better tube, no c-mount and, of course, the two eyes view...
Both are secondhand GEN 3, both are 26mm /F1,2 with a 31,75mm adaptator for astronomy. The mono is from an old NATO’s stock (ITT brand), the bino from the US Army (brand is LITTON).
And now, im kind of lost... One or Two eyes ?
i already enjoyed a binoviewer with ‘normal’ EP in my TV 76mm... and i will get the same brightness on both NV setup if i get it right, so it is basically a personnal decision to take, i know.
Any users feedbacks of both ‘worlds’ ?
Here are the pictures :
