⇩ OVNI-B (Binoviewer version) ⇩
OVNI-B is the 1st night vision binoviewer in the world designed for astronomy !!! It integrates 2 eyepieces of 27mm and an Astronomy grade intensifier tube GEN3 Thin-Film White Phosphor P45 (white phosphor tube specifically designed for astronomy).
No more loss of light or backfocus issues, the OVNI-B frees itself from all the limits of astronomy binoviewers. Not only it is possible to use it directly in prime focus (without barlow or OCA) in the focuser of any refractor/reflector telescope. But it is even possible to use it in afocal, i.e. on a traditional eyepiece acting as a focal reducer (see photo gallery below). Meaning the observation of the deep sky at low magnification and very wide field becomes possible. Conversely, we can associate a barlow to increase the magnification. Without forgetting to use it hand-held (like a pair of binoculars), with the possibility to add camera lenses. The OVNI-B has functions essential to astronomy such as autogated, manual gain control, a white phosphor tube (very natural color) ...
★ 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).
★ Adjustment of the interpupillary distance to adapt to the morphology of each person.
★ 1.25" & 2" barrel with thread for filters
★ multi-coated lenses
★ C/CS mount adapter (c-mount)
★ M42 adapter (42mm)
★ 27mm F1.2 front lens
★ tube inspection report, lanyard, protective pouch, 2 batteries AA
★ optional, optimized accessories are available here
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.
