Some interesting work there, very interesting!
It looks like you are making Monocular NV devices but with some biggish looking Tubes?

We Europeans have to ( :( ) resort to DIY a fair bit!

All The Best

Those outdoor images are very impressive.

Some interesting Lenses involved there as well, thei.

Would I be right in thinking you are using top class (camera) lenses to 'boost' the tubes limitations?
Which would mean that you know a lot about 'Optics', I think.
(3rd EDIT :oops: ) Do you consider Lens Coatings as a possible problem? Camera/Lens manufacturers actually try to lessen IR transmission for daylight use (normally).

Some extra Photos would be great, if you have time.

What is your primary use of Night Vision devices Thei?

All my NV devices are centred around Hunting, Thei (which may upset/annoy you?).

So they are all 'Monos' of various types, I have D-125s, GB Sights ASPro (digital), Yukon Exelons & a Yukon Ranger (digital spotter 'scope').

Next stop - Gen3, when money allows !

Thei, which Digital unit are you talking about?
I have one as an Add-On NV but only because part of my Hunting area (waterfowl lakes) has Sodium Floodlighting :( (http://www.gbsights.co.uk/digital_as.htm)

I much prefer the natural image given by my IIT units.
