⇩ OVNI-M (Monocular version) ⇩
OVNI-M is a worldwide unique intensifier eyepiece that is entirely designed for astronomy !!! It's 26mm focal length and 31.75mm/1.25" barrel allows it to be used with all telescopes. With a weight of 240g and a height of 10cm (excluding the eyecup), it revolutionizes the observation of the sky by benefiting from the most recent technological advances designed in our workshop.
Made in France the OVNI-M integrates an intensifier tube « Astronomy Grade » which is one of the many innovations of OVNI Night Vision (learn more). Like any eyepiece, it can be used at prime focus thanks to its 31,75mm /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).
We've engineered this eyepiece for visual observation as well as astrophotography and amateur scientific research using an astronomy camera (ZWO, QHY...) or a DSLR (Sony A7S, Canon...) with the OVNI Camera Adapter accessory.
★ 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.
★ Anti-reflective blackened inner edges and multi-coated lenses for maximum contrast (visible light & near infrared).
★ 26mm F1.2 front lens that delivers high transmission from 390nm to 1000nm
★ 1.25" barrel with thread for filters (optional 2" adapter)
★ adapter CS/C-mount
★ side thread (1/4 UNC) for tripod use
★ safety lanyard
★ travel bag
★ rechargeable battery CR123
★ tube test report
★ optional accessories are available (see accessories)
ITAR-free for exports to the USA since 2020.
OVNI-M is available in 3 versions and FOM is the main specification. Each OVNI-M is delivered with a test report : FOM, SNR, EBI, Gain, Sensitivity, Resolution...
« Astronomy grade » intensifiers tubes is an innovation of OVNI Night Vision meaning that they are specially manufactured for astronomy by combining the best performance of GEN3 filmless/unfilmed tubes and the extended lifetime of GEN3 thinfilmed tubes.
OVNI Night Vision eyepieces are designed specifically and exclusively for astronomy and space applications (any other use such as war, hunting... is strictly prohibited). We have export permits to ship to many countries around the world. For US users please note that OVNI-M is ITAR-free and have been exported to the USA without restrictions since 2020.
