We have been so excited by what night vision has done for our observing, Tele Vue has decided to become a Tactical Night Vision Company (TNVC) dealer! That's right; you can now buy the complete TNV/PVS-14 night vision system for astronomical observing direct from Tele Vue! Though the TNV/PVS-14 is not our product, with its L3 sourced, un-filmed, white phosphor tube, it's the one night vision monocular that fits our "do no harm to the image" product philosophy. It provides the best combination of extreme low-light sensitivity, low-noise, and neutral "white" coloration for astronomy. As you'll see, the system is also simple, versatile, and complete, for an easy shopping experience.
In addition to the night vision monocular, the system includes: an adapter to attach the TNV/PVS-14 to your Tele Vue eyepiece, effectively making all our compatible eyepieces "night vision" eyepieces, the Fonemate and adapter to fit it to the TNV/PVS-14, and a 48mm filter adapter for the objective of the TNV/PVS-14 for when you want to scan the sky at 1x!
Call Tele Vue direct at 845-469-4551 to discuss how night vision can change your observing experience and to place your order. Please note that you must be a United States citizen to purchase the Gen3 PVS-14. Please read the ITAR statement below governing the terms of sale.
TNVC builds its PVS-14 using mil spec, Gen-3, image intensifying tubes by L3. The filmless white phosphor technology plus manual gain control make it the ideal unit for astronomical use. Rather than emerald green stars and scintillation, the white phosphor tube produces a more natural viewing experience. The gain control allows dialing in just the right amount of light amplification vs background noise for any given object brightness. The TNV/PVS-14 features an "autogated" power supply to reduce blooming on bright objects and protect the image intensifier tube from damage. The "filmless" tube technology provides greater detail clarity and 15-20% more light amplification than standard thin-filmed green tubes. The objective focuses manually and the PVS-14 eyepiece contains its own diopter adjustment. Specifications and Warranty.
