Used our PVS14 in a TEC 140 and SVR90T in Death Valley. We were at Texas Springs campground. My SQM had a reading of 21.49. Intermittent local light pollution from neighboring campers. Observed on two of the four nights we were there. The other two nights we where exhausted and got some extra rest.
Enjoyed using the 7nm Ha filter looking at Horsehead and Flame, California, Heart and a bunch of other nebula. We also tried various other filters but spend a bit of time with no filter. The TEC 140 was our largest scope and the PVS14 made borderline faint stuff super easy to see. We looked at a bunch of dimer globular clusters and they looked pretty good. The night vision viewing was useful until the other campsites settled down to bed after 10PM. We did a bit more eyepiece astronomy once our eyes were dark adapted.
I played around with iPhone night vision photos but nothing worth posting at this time. We didn't have a tracking mount. This summer I will bring my AP900 to Golden State and Oregon star parties and we will take some night vision photos on a tracking mount.
My wife and I were pleased with our time using the PVS14. Looking forward to more chances in the warmer months.
