AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Modules
for CCD Cameras
The AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module is the most advanced Night Vision system available today! Thanks to its modular design, the 9350 Night Vision Module converts any CCD camera into an optimized low-light imaging system.
The AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module is easily moved from camera to camera, just order additional adapters for your camera or camcorder, or convert your AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module into a pocket scope.
The heart of the modular Night Vision system is the CIU (Central Intensifier Unit), an electro-optical device with communication electronics that ensures proper interface between the camera and the lens. A variety of Gen II and Gen III Central Intensifier Units allow you to tailor a system in terms of resolution, sensitivity, spectral response, gain, output brightness and budget.
The AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module is designed to offer the greatest choice of camera selections for the user. If your application calls for surveillance using a small C-Mount CCD camera, you can order the 9350FLAC2 and 9350 BBAC adaptor pairs as seen in the diagram to the right. If you later require the capability to use a digital, 35mm camera, or camcorder, just order the adapter pairs that you need and switch back and forth.

The AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module extends the camera’s usable light range without the drawbacks. Dark, moonlit or starlit nights can be imaged as bright, high-resolution scenes easily recorded by the camera’s film or daylight sensor. As new cameras and technologies are introduced, new camera and lens adapters will be developed for the AstroScope 9350 Night Vision Module ensuring that your Night Vision system will never become obsolete!
Unlike pocketscope-based night vision setups, AstroScope
Q: Will the Night Vision Module see in total darkness?
A: No. Image intensifiers amplify the existing light. The current high end Gen II and Gen III OMNI IV will allow viewing in very low light levels.
Q: If I buy the adapters for my C-mount camera, and my requirements change, where I need digital or a 35mm camera , do I have to buy a complete new Night Vision System ?
A: No. This is a night vision system. If your requirements change, just order the adapters you need for the new camera or camcorder.
Q: Will I have to use a special lens?
A: No. The system is designed to use any focal length C-mount lenses.
Q: Will I need any special training to use the Night Vision Module on my camera?
A: No. Our design fits between the camera body and lens, you operate the camera as though the night vision module isn’t installed.
Q: What kind of batteries power the module?
A: The power comes from various sources including AC, DC, and battery.
Q: Can the module be exported?
