AstroScope Night Vision Adaptor for Nikon AF-Type SLR Cameras
Use the Lynred AstroScope to transform Nikon dSLR cameras into night vision photography systems!. Capture high resolution images at night and in low-light situations otherwise too dark for unintensified digital cameras. Light amplification is equivalent to an 8-10 F-stop improvement so that moonlit or starlit scenes are transformed into bright images. Now available for full-format digital cameras, with variable gain, as versatile modules and dedicated adapters.
Image quality is the essence of this modular device and the principal reason professionals continue to rely on the Astroscope as their go-to camera accessory for night vision observation and image capture. The built-in high performance light gathering (detection) intensifier transforms what is relatively undetected with standard camera configurations into bright artifact-free images. Capturing these full frame images in either night or low-light situations that are bright, sharp and free from vibration or blooming is what the Astroscope does best.
The Lynred Astroscope is the only night vision module that transforms dark scenes into bright high resolution images while maintaining existing electronic communications between the camera and the objective lens. When the device is mounted between the camera body and the objective lens all lens functions such as autofocus and image stabilization are retained - an indispensable feature for today s night vision photographer.

- Model 9350NIK-3-PRO (part #914658) - professional-grade module and light intensifier CIU (Central Intensifier Unit) without variable gain feature.
- Model 9350NIK-3V-PRO (part #914993) - professional-grade module and light intensifier CIU (Central Intensifier Unit) with variable gain feature. Variable Gain could offer significant improvement in performance, depending on your usage. VG improves contrast – like when car headlights or streetlights are in the picture. Without VG, users have less control over whether they can improve the contrast. This could make the difference of whether they get a useful image or not.
Note: This is an ITAR product - export restrictions apply. The common module Central Intensifier Units (CIU) used with all Astroscope 9350 Night Vision kits require an export license from the U.S. Dept. of Commerce. Special conditions may apply.
