  1. Survival Gear
    Just wanted to throw this out there, I've had one for a while and as far as budget night vision goes these offer a lot of bang for the buck and IMO are better than Gen 1 and close to basic gen 2 in overall performance. I thought I'd put this under "Survival Gear" rather than in "Optics" as I...

    Ok, have to say I'm excited! Been looking at Thermal's again for awhile and kicked a lot of stuff around and finally took the plunge today. For anyone interested Bering's been around for awhile and is based out of Texas. Anyway I already have a FLIR PTS233 which was their most basic thermal...

    Anyone that follows me knows that like Nocturnal type devices, and a lot of what is on my YouTube Channel is dedicated to that sort of Equipment. Anyway, today I was replying to a post in my channel on Thermal and wanted to refresh my memory on Specifications on a couple of devices and...

    I've posted some stuff previously on the SiOnyx Aurora Digital Night Vision, but I just posted a new Video on using the SiOnyx remotely as in streaming the image to your Smartphone or Tablet using it's built in WiFi connection. Normally I just use NV in the first person sense, but I have to...

    Hi, I have an active auction on Ebay for anyone who is interested in having a good scope, almost brand new for his/her weapons. This is high-tech, tough and durable multi-use monocular that delivers great Gen 2+ performance. Sirius can be hand-held, head/helmet mounted or mounted onto a rifle...

    Just posted another video on the Aurora, Had someone ask me if it would work in a PVS-14 Style "Skull Crusher", Long story short I tried it and wasn't quite happy with the results so I decided to try and do something about it and it actually worked out pretty well.. Anyway here's a link to the...

    Just wanted to share another video on the SiOnyx Aurora that I just uploaded... On SiOnyx's web sight they show it being Weapon's Mountable as a Clip-On device in front of a Daytime Optic, Anyway I wanted to play around and see if that was actually feasible and share the results (Spoiler...

    Over Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend I had the chance to pick up a SiOnyx Aurora "Sport" on sale for $299 vs. the regular $399, and did a review on it that I wanted to share... For those that are familiar the Aurora Sport differs from the regular Aurora in that it's $300 cheaper and isn't...

    Ok first I have to say I'm at a bit of a loss on where to post this, but I settled here because this is about taking 30+ year old Night Vision and Tearing it apart and attempting to make it more usable... I could have posted it under Optics, but it's nothing you can go out and just buy so it's...

    Just posted a new video on YouTube, I did side by side comparisons of all the the major generations of Night Vision compared as "apples to apples" as I could along with a couple of tabletop sessions (one for Thermal & Digital and another for Tube type NV) with a lot of info most videos and...

    I've been playing around and just finished another Night Vision comparison review on YouTube and figured I'd share it here too.. This one is Between two "budget" NV Scopes, the Firefield NVRS which is an traditional commercial Gen 1 scope, and the Sightmark Photon RT which is a Digitial scope...

    Just wanted to share... Just posted a video comparing a Thermal Scope to a Gen 3 Clip-On in front of a 3x Prism scope at 100, 200 and 300 yards. The equipment used was a FLIR PTS-233 Thermosight Pro (1.5x, 12 degree FOV, with 340x356 Boson Sensor), and a slightly older / like new Armasight...
  13. Optics
    Just finished a project that I'd started a while back, not out of necessity but more just to see if I could do it. This scope is a Gen 2 based on the MX-9644 image tube (Same tube used in the PVS-4 and TVS-5 military NV Scopes as well as the VVS-2 Armored NV periscopes). The source of the tube...

    Ok.. I have to come out of the closet and say that I have a Night Vision Fetish and have since I first saw old Gen Zero stuff in the old "Edmunds Scientific" mail order catalogs back in the day. Anyway In the past few years I've played (and am still) around building diy night vision stuff and...
