⇩ OVNI-M (Monocular version) ⇩
OVNI-M is the only night vision eyepiece in the world made for astronomy !!! Its 26mm focal length and 1.25" barrel allow it to be used with all telescopes, from the smaller to the bigger. With a weight of 240g and a height of 10cm (excluding the eyeguard), it revolutionises the observation of the night sky by benefiting from the most recent technological advances.
OVNI-M integrates an Astronomy grade GEN3 Thin-Film White Phosphor P45 intensifier tube (white phosphor tube specifically designed for astronomy). Like any eyepiece, it can be used at prime focus thanks to its 1.25" barrel (with thread for filters) of any telescope. Very flexible, it is even possible to use it in afocal, i.e. on a traditional eyepiece, thus acting as a focal reducer (see photo gallery below). This makes it possible to observe the deep sky with a very wide field of view. Conversely, it can be combined with a barlow to increase the magnification. Without forgetting to use it by hand (like a pair of binoculars), with the possibility of adding camera objectives. The OVNI-M has functions that are indispensable for astronomy, such as autogated, manual gain control and a white phosphor tube (very natural colour).
★ Autogated to protect the tube in case of high light intensity.
★ Manual gain control to reduce or eliminate scintillation (mainly when using a filter).
★ Diopter adjustment to adapt to the sight of each user (myopic, astigmatic, spectacle wearers, everyone can observe).
★ Flexible and 360° rotatable eyeguard to adapt to the morphology of each astronomer.
★ 1.25" barrel with thread for filters (optional 2" adapter)
★ multi-coated lenses
★ C/CS mount adapter (c-mount)
★ standard thread (1/4 UNC) on both sides
★ tube inspection report
★ 26mm F1.2 front lens
★ safety lanyard, protective pouch, 1 battery CR123
FOM is the main reference measure and all tubes are supplied with a measurement control report such as, SNR, EBI, Luminous gain, Limiting Resolution... We develop each tube with our own performance criterias perfectly optimised for astronomy.
