Hello, I'm new to the forum and have zero experience in NV. I saw beautiful photos from Gavster ( https://www.cloudyni...ery/?p=10090539 ) and really want to achieve the similar visual effect.
I have read Best of Night Vision (NV) by Eddgie and did some research on PVS-14 and PVS-7 but still have many questions.
1. What do those FOM xxxx Min mean? Do the differences justify the price difference for visual astronomy use? What is L3Harris Unfilmed?
2. I suppose there's a binoviewer integrated inside PVS-7? Since the images are electronically enhanced, light loss is no longer an issue? Why don't everyone just go with PVS-7?
3. I have a Tak FC-100DZ and a C8, do I need a faster scope to fully utilize NV equipment?
4. What else do I need for NV other than the monocular/goggle? My budget is from $5k to 10k. I live in NYC and the sky is heavily polluted.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
