Cool night vision adapter rings..... :D

hi all.....i am starting to buy some nigt vision stuff for my slr so i can get video at night from my D90...long story but basically its for a school project i am doing. The main plan is that i buy a standard nv moncular (this one Alana Ecology Yukon NVMT2 Night Vision Scope ) and by using a an adaptor ring i will shove it on the front of my nikon D90 and use that to film the result. I need help with the adaptor ring however.....all the websites sell this relay adaptor ring that allows SLR 35mm and digital cameras to be attached to the NVMT night vision monocular. but.... it also says later on that An additional T-mount adapter (M42 x 0.75) is also required to fit the adapter to individual camera mounts (available from all good photographic retailers).

What does this mean???......and if i get the monocular,,,adaptor,,,and t-mount adaptor will i be able to attach the monocular to the D90 and get results....

This is probably a stupid question but thanks for the help and if this works i will post all my results here asap

Re: night vision adapter rings..... :D

Russel what your loking for can be found here

Stockport Binocular & Telescope Centre. Astrophotography

The T adapter is the bit that is the same as the lens mount, the rest are bit's that screw in.

Remember that the focul point of your night vision monocular will be within the monocular itself. this means you will have to use a lens to focus the output from the monocular onto your sensor.

This is sometimes called a barlow lens, it would fit within the T connector assembly and refocus the image.

Do some reading up on Astrophotography it will point you down the right track.

Re: night vision adapter rings..... :D

thanks guys, but also, when the relay says that on its own, it will allow the the monocular to be attached to a 35mm camera, what does that mean?. it only says you need an adapter ring if you wanna attach it to an SLR???
