Hi all, :) 

 

I would like to purchase a Webcam that has night Vision for Under $100 dollars. That has an option for remote access from phone App ( Google Play-Android ) . I have seen ones like these;

My problem is ...

 

The IR distance view on these is around 10m. My purpose for one is to help view any types of movements in the sky, e.g Comet  etc.

Which are far more than 10m away :) . This requires say night vision Binoculars probably military grade hence proves several one I am concerned with is cost.

 

So my question in brief is as follows;

 

Can anyone suggest a Night Vision Webcam that has more than a 10m field of view under $100. That comes with a Remote access app for Smart Phones/ Laptops.... app for Android ( Google play store ).

 

Any links would be great !!! I am making DYI one with the old film trick. However this does not have the remote app feature.

 

Kind Regards

Cimi

Hi Cimi,

what exactly do you want to achieve with these night vision goggles? See more stars/comets? See stars in the infrared band?

Nightvision can work in many different ways from detecting thermal emission instead of light to multiplying the light of stars and the moon to make the light appear brighter. None of these methods is really suited for sky observations though, unfortunately.
If you are looking for items that "glow" by themselves such as comets and/or stars I would probably recommend normal binoculars.

However id rather IR range to be around 50m ( 164ft) 

 

Not sure if I need to install cable power supply with this ?

 

Just want something simple easy set up Wifi-Remote Access- 50m ( 164ft ) IR under $100 lol

Hi 

myrti

Id like to enhance the brightness of any " moving object " in the night sky. Be able to have device outside and be able to record it and view it remotely.

What you are looking for is called a SKYLIGHT display.  It takes in all the light available and amplifies it.  Night vision basically floods an area with an infra-red (IR) light source (invisible) so the IR camera can SEE.  Real time IR cameras that need no IR source are expensive but work better that Night Vision or viewed IR.
