AstroScope – gives your SLR night vision


So you think your flash new Nikon with it’s 25,000 ISO can see in the dark huh? Yeah well it can’t, not without one of these anyway. The AstroScope night vision image intensifier tube slots in between your camera and your choice of lens. The tube is powered via the camera’s internal battery so you don’t need to do anything and the lens retains all it’s normal functions including image stabilisation. As well as being available for Nikon and Canon SLR mounts, you can also pick up an AstroScope for the Canon XL series video camera as well as high end broadcast cameras. POA.


Transform your Nikon or Canon Digital SLR Camera and capture high resolution images at night and in low-light situations otherwise too dark for standard digital cameras. With AstroScope, the light amplification is equivalent to the improvement of 8-10 F-stops so that moonlit or starlit scenes are transformed into bright, high resolution images that are easily photographed.
