Q&A:

racer24crm asked Is there any way to get good night vision goggles for prices that aren’t ridiculously expensive?

I’m talking about gen. 2 or up… I have gen 1 and I am trying to find something better but as soon as you go to gen 2 or higher the prices become ridiculous. Also, anyone have any experience with higher night vision? How is it?

And got the following answer:

Only if they are stolen. You are looking at least 1500 dollars for a pair. They have the third generation out now which will run you anywhere from 2500 for a weapon sight to 5k plus for head pieces. Gl on your search.

dc asked I dont own the car my sis does & has insurance that covers me.Can I get Nonownrs ins?

I need to get an sr22. My sis doesnt live in the household. I was recently dropped from my last sr22 policy because i “”had acess to other vehicles” dumb…But why cant I get a non owners policy if i dont own the vehicle right?
My sis already has insurance for it> Im not named on it but in case of an accident its still covered. She cant add my name as it would cancel hers. What kinda loophole do i gotta jump through?

And got the following answer:

You can see UFO’s with third generation Night Vision Goggles. Everything else is a distracting lie including what you just described as “dumb”. “They” are making us stand in ever longer lines to pay insurance, pay DMV fee, pay through the nose and up the butt. We however are the “butt” of the joke.

“If you can see UFOs with third generation Night Vision Goggles, and you can, then “Everything Else Is The Lie”.

Dreadhead89 asked What goggles did the united states marine corps have issued?

Prior to this new type that are very recent, what were the older goggles? Anyone know the actual name for them so I can read up on the eye protection? Thanks!

And got the following answer:

Dread,
this is yet another case of development that was advanced following captured scientific research of the Allied Forces from the Nazi Regime.Through the 1950’s, Night Vision focused on improving upon the cascade image tube, a development of the Germans during WW II. Scientists at the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) were contracted to research and develop a near-infrared, two-stage cascade image tube. Using a new multi-alkali photocathode (developed at RCA), the new cascade image tube performed beyond everyone’s expectations. This new system, known as Image Intensification (I2), gathered ambient light from the moon and the stars in the night sky and intensified this light. Night Vision quickly adjusted their plans to improve upon this system. There were certain challenges attendant with this new technology: the gain was limited and the output image was upside down. A third electrostatic stage added to the tube resulted in more gain and re-inverted the image, but the tube grew to 17 inches long and 3.5 inches in diameter to maintain adequate edge resolution. This made the system too large for military applications. However, these developments were a major step forward in the development of passive, man-portable night vision systems.

By the mid-1960’s, scientists and engineers at Night Vision fielded the first generation of passive night vision devices for U.S. troops, including a Small Starlight Scope that served as a rifle-mounted sight or as a handheld viewer. Realizing these systems were far from perfected, Night Vision research personnel came to refer to the development of this early equipment as the First Generation Image Intensifier Program.

We are now literally on the third generation at this point in time. The Starlight Scope was the platoon level night vision tool used during the Vietnam War and this was effective at night for a single man, in a fighting hole, attending his watch in advance of VC movements.

See the link below for more and googe Radio Corporation of America (RCA) who was the first company in the USA to develop the I2 devices.

I hopt this helps,

hades asked What are the best night vision goggles?

Hi. I want to know what the best night vision goggles are. This includes accuracy, reliability and most importantly battery life.

And got the following answer:

the Best?
Teh Best will cost you arond 5 grand from outfits such as Night Optics USA, nightoptics.com for free catalogue.
At least in my usage they matched Federal military ones.
counts on what you want to use them for. If battery life is of major concern then the best will not be easy on them.
If you are serious then lok for units tht have 3rd generation and contains selier optics with day night switches to conserve battery life.
Aurora DNV.
One can find 3rd generation soviet bloc nations used and some new that cost less thn one third new units and have same capabilitys.
Just make surethe battery syustems are copmpatible with our best batterys, interchagable.
I tried and liked very much the BNVD line from ITT but 6 grand? it is a goggle but can buy attacemnt for head mount and only takes one AA battery for hours, up to aroud twelve. Remeber to check on flash reovery time as even a swsitch towards a light sourdce can casuse shut down and then reup eating juice.
Stay away from high . over 6 power units unless one is looking for purely tactical long rnge useage.
Out here it is legal to shoot coyotes at night using calls to bring them in but anything with high power at night blurs image.

wish you luck but as I mentioned you can find used units of gen two or three that will be very effecient for a heck of a lot less price and get a guarantee with them.

Flying Saucers Are Real. asked Night Vision Goggles for sky gazing?

Is it worth the cost of some third generation night vision goggles to use for star gazing? What would I see? Thanks for any input, my child has an interest in science and I would like to come up with some “cutting edge” technology to share, so any other ideas would be nice to receive as well.

And got the following answer:

OK, there certainly is something to be said about classic astronomy and all the effort and difficulty you go through to see dim objects. For some people it is the idea that they are looking at the real object rather than a “picture” of it. It’s like climbing a mountain versus taking a helicopter up. For some folks, taking a helicopter is cheating, but other people may argue it’s the only way you could get certain people up the mountain 😉 Hey, I’m such a purist that I hate those “goto” telescopes–to me it’s only fun to look at if I found it myself through a telescope. But that doesn’t mean I tell people not to buy “goto” telescopes if they really want one.

Now for all the folks who say that night vision goggles are worthless or don’t work on the stars (or only work at close range), I ask: have you ever looked through night vision goggles at the stars? I have, and it’s quite amazing. I will warn you, however, some of the cheap Gen. I goggles are not worth it at all. But look through a high-quality GEN II or III photomultiplier and it’s quite amazing. It’s like looking at the stars during the daytime. You don’t have to strain to see the dim stars, you can see all the little swirls and details in the milky way, you can see some of the larger galaxies such as andromeda, m33, m51, etc at 1X power, which a trained person would strain to see with the naked eye. it’s almost impossible to get a beginner to see any of these except for Andromeda at the darkest skies. There used to be a GEN III eyepiece that you could stick into a telescope for enhanced views of whatever your telescope was looking at. I never had the priveledge to try it out, but apparently it was also equally amazing. For the first time, a beginner could see the spirals in M33 and M51. Show a beginner those in your normal telescope and they’ll hardly even see it.

I think that night vision is an especially good tool if you use it responsibly to teach people how to see those objects without aid. You can show them through the night vision where certain objects are or how they actually look, and then you look with your unaided eye and eventually learn how to see the same thing without the aid. It takes a lot more work and dedication to see dim things without night vision aid, so only the most dedicated, the “mountain climbers” are the ones who are going to go through the trouble. Night vision can open up stargazing to more casual obervers. It can also become a crutch to some folks who only learn to enjoy life with the help of technological aid.

Oh, and good quality Gen II and Gen III scopes or eyepieces cost thousands to tens of thousands of dollars. I’ve never yet seen anything very impressive through a hundred dollar Wal-Mart pair. It’s been a few years since I’ve looked through one, though, so maybe they have gone down in price? Of course, you can do a lot more than just astronomy with nigth vision, so they are good for multiple uses.

In other words, unless you have lots of disposable cash, money for night vision just to help your kid enjoy astronomy might be better spent on other stuff. Andy has some good suggestions. I would more likely consider night vision for an astronomy club or educational outreach activity because they definitely have their place in education.

Good luck!

Edit: And night vision is not used to see “heat and motion” either. Said by another person who has probably never looked through night vision before. FAR INFRARED cameras are used to see heat sources and they are extremely expensive and almost unavailable to the general public. You see them mostly in military applications, although at least one luxury car added one to see people at night. Probably not great for stars due to their low resolution and atmospheric absorption of far infrared, but then I haven’t tried one yet. Night vision works on visible light and near infrared and it basically looks like a black & white (or green and white) photo of a normal daytime scene. No magic with heat, motion, nearness/distance of objects or any mumbo-jumbo like that. It’s just a photomultiplier tube that amplifies mostly visible light.

devilwithabrokenwing asked if i get a car in bankruptcy how do i get the title if the lien has been released?

the bank will not give me the title and i want to fix the car and Drive
the bank will not release the title it will just release the lien

And got the following answer:

Paramont Transport SVC answered your question correctly. Take the title and bank staement to DMV. They will tell you what more they want. The opeative is “Good Luck”
