Night Vision Monocular

Has anyone ever used a Night Vision Monocular either on the DLSR or 35mm SLR? I was wondering if that actually works and if you can really take pics that way.

Any information would be helpful. Please move if I've put this in the wrong spot.

Never used night vision monocular with a DSLR, only with a video camera. I would imagine the only challenge would be mounting the NVG tube and working out where to mount the battery for it. One solution is to mount the tube on a solid mount secured to the camera tripod mounting screw recess and adjusting the height/distance of the tube to match the lens you are using. It will provide some challenges and the effort/reward ratio is dependent on what you want to achieve from it. Generation 3 tubes can be pretty expensive too, any earlier generation tubes will be quite grainy. Happy engineering!

A quick Google...PVS-14 Camera Adapter ‹ Tactical Night Vision Company
They say it clamps around the ocular. They do not sell outside US, it should be fairly easy to duplicate how ever.
