The OVNI Night Vision range is composed of 2 Night Vision eyepieces dedicated mainly to astronomers practicing visual observation. It is also possible to associate them with a smartphone, a camera or an APN to practice astrophotography, photometry, astrometry... and contribute to astronomical research.

★ OVNI-M is a monocular with 26mm focal length and 1.25" barrel. It fits into the eyepiece holder of a reflector or refractor telescope and you can observe through the glass part of the eyepiece. It can be associated with a focal reducer, a barlow, filters...

★ OVNI-B is a binoviewer with 1.25" and 2" barrels. It fits into the eyepiece holder of a reflector or refractor telescope and integrates 2 eyepieces with a focal length of 27mm. It can also be associated with a focal reducer, a barlow, filters...

OVNI-M and OVNI-B have been developed for astronomy and are optimized to be compatible with all refractor and reflector telescopes (from the smallest to the largest). And they benefit from the diopter adjustment to be adapted to the sight of all astronomers. 

Note that they both have manual gain control features to reduce or eliminate scintillation (may be visible when using a filter).

For maximum contrast they feature anti-reflective blackened inner edges and multi-coated lenses that delivers high transmission from 400nm to 1000nm.

OVNI-M and OVNI-B can be used in 3 ways: :

  1. at the focal point, by inserting them directly into the eyepiece holder of a reflector or refractor telescope

  2. in afocal, by using them on a traditional eyepiece. This makes it possible to increase or decrease the magnification and the field of observation.

  3. hand-held (like binoculars) for very low magnification and wide field observations. It is possible to observe large structures such as the Barnard Loop, the California Nebula, M8, M20...

Many accessories are also available (included or optional).
