Guest Posted May 22, 2017 Share Posted May 22, 2017 (edited) On some warm summer nights when the sky is clear I enjoy star gazing with my 8 x 40 binoculars. Sometimes I end up tracking satellites. Larger, higher light grabbing binoculars tend to be too heavy to be hand held while laying back in a lounger. Someone mentioned low light night vision monoculars to look at the night sky. But I always thought that these required an infra red source to illuminate the object to be viewed. So is there a difference between low light night vision and ir illuminated monoculars? It was mentioned that there are monoculars that have built in ir illuminators and those that are built to multiply the objects light. Are there any star gazers who uses these devices?
