Signed up just to join in the discussion. I've got 10 units of the Night Eagle and Night Eagle Astro (0.000005lux) and a whole load of 1/1.8" lens on the way. Plan to mount 2 on weapons, 6 on 2 vehicles\, and 2 on a VR goggle, all with live feed. Can't wait to try them out!

It is important that it does not lag for fast targeting without blur and reaction on IR light(hope that white outs wont happen).

Astro......I would think that would not work well as nv for hunting as it would rely on being still , or aM I wrong ?

Kind regards crs

The problem of washout can be rectified with an adjustable iris, or lower watt IR lamp. A smaller iris should increase depth of view thus crispier image.

Agreed, but it won't solve the problem of the very slow frame rate needed to work at extremely low light levels.
Foe Astro work, you can easily have a frame rate of one frame every 8 minutes and still get a sharp image of the bit of the sky you're looking at.
For smooth video and no jerkiness in either camera movement or target movement you need at least 25 frames per second.
Clearly the camera has much less time to collect light at 25 frames per second than it does at 1 frame every 8 minutes, so it needs a much higher level of light before it can produce a decent image.

Cheers
