Morovision's MONOCAM adapter is a simple, yet ingenious, device that merges the immediacy and simplicity of digital photography with the covert surveillance capabilities of night vision technology. The MONOCAM is designed exclusively for the Olympus 1030 SW digital camera, and its tension-set clamp will accept a PVS-14 or an MV-14 night vision monocular. The MONOCAM concept is remarkably simple: it can be assembled, powered-up, and fully operational in seconds. Because the MONOCAM system relies upon the photographic genius of the Olympus 1030 SW, you don't have to be Ansel Adams to make the shot – all you have to do is point and shoot.

The MONOCAM set-up we received for review included a premium ITT NEPVS-14 night vision monocular. This state-of-the-art nighttime optic features a 3rd generation ITT "Pinnacle" intensifier tube rated at 64 lp/mm, manual gain control, an integral infrared illuminator, and it operates on a single "AA" battery.

Digital photography has forced professionals to rethink archiving of work. Physical negatives have transformed into digital files, which are only as stable as the media on which they are stored.

Hard disks are extremely delicate pieces of technology: a magnetic storage disc read by a mechanism that under normal circumstances never physically comes in contact with the platter. Problems arise when conditions are not normal; if the reading mechanism touches the platter… well, kiss the data goodbye. Computer hard disks are more reliable than they were a decade ago, but disk failure is still a fact of life.

So, it's not a matter of if a hard disk will fail; it's a matter of when a disk will fail. Armed with this knowledge, it's imperative that photographers implement a solid backup scheme for digital images. This article is going to cover one way of protecting data – RAID 1 storage.

You won’t see very far with your telescope without an eyepiece through which to gaze. Eyepieces for telescopes come in many different designs to fit many different budgets. They are made with a variety of specs, which include apparent field of view, eye relief (measured in millimeters) and focal length.
