trident01101: I have the same Bresser night scope and the JXD990, but when I focus in on
the stars the JXD990 screen shows the stars but they are all black in the
middle, the stars are not clear white balls of light, I tried all settings
on the JXD but cannot fix this problem. I changed the settings from
standard resolution to full but no difference. Has any one got a solution
to this problem ?. also when looking and focused in on jupiter it is a
black ball with a white halo of light around it, am I missing a setting or
The stars look like dounuts with a black hole in the middle.
offerman: To answer some people questions below i just bought my bresser from
France,11£ postage. If this bresser is any good then i might consider
selling my Yukon Ranger 5x45 with MPR recording unit. I`ll wait and see how
Bresser is first though.
Ufo Sydney: what colour is the image . green or black and white ?
seeingUFOsPA: Great demo -- I'm gonna share this video with my subs since I get so many
questions regarding what equipment is more affordable for UFO hunting than
the generation 3 scopes... My ATN gen 3 died, so I'll probably be ordering
this setup myself!
UFOHunter64: The Bresser gives a black and white image
UFOHunter64: Hi Offerman, great thx for the update, I will check out your video :-)
offerman: Expensive to, Can i use a tripod with the Bresser, can i film straight from
day to night or do i have to use different lenses. The yukon films in IR
which is great for filimng ufos which i have done but would like to in the
day to.Can i use a tripod with the angled bracket device you are
using?(whats it called). Many thanks if you can help with all these Qs.
offerman: Hi Bud, Just thought i`d post my first video narration. Just talking a bit
about the Yukon Night ranger and my setup. On My channel, I`ll soon be
doing a side by side comparrison video of the ranger and bresser night
scope to see which one is best. Hope you like the vid and feel free to
leave a comment on it good or constructive.Thanks. Offerman.
Darren Banks: Pretty cheap and simple way to record but works a treat thanks mate
xTROJANxX: You can still get the JDx990 on ebay from Hongkong for £53.99 free postage,
I have the Bresser and I think it does a great job, there's another mp4 dvr
with av-in and av-out Mini DVR SPY Camera Video Recorder for £42.79- check
first it's compatible.
jeffrey rose: hows this working for veiwing ufos?
Paul Stanton: terrific set up, good find. where can you get these from in the UK? ebay is
over complicating the buying process. giving me a load of import stuff that
i have to check on. no idea
UFOHunter64: Oh nice comment .. thx, yes please do share if its any help .. sorry to
hear about the Gen 3 dying ... keep up the good work :-)
offerman: Thanks for taking the time to reply. I have ordered the bracket and bresser
unit and might sell my yukon with its mpr player recorder as screen tiny.
One more thing , not sure if you can help, can you point me in the
direction of the jxd990 viewer recorder, can`t find one anywhere. Or can
you recommend a simple recording device like this that might be cheaper and
more easily available? I also have some ufo footage if you are interested
in seeing it. Thanks, John
UFOHunter64: @RANGER724 Thanks, yeah it looks like it should be good, hope to catch some
interesting things later :-)
RANGER724: great set up!!
Mofafreund: where did you bougth the JXD 990?
UFOHunter64: Hi Jeffrey, not used it much in anger so not had any notable catches yet.
can see a vid of it in use in my vids though. check out the 'S.U.F.O.C
Skywatch 27th Jan 2012'. If you mean the JXD it really is much better than
using the eyepiece. I think it is a good tool though and there is plenty of
good footage out there, take a look at ufonv.com
reddog694uk: I like the image intensifier, i hope their next model has an sd card slot
for the latest high capacity cards, it seems like an oversight that it
wouldn't have one as standard. Nice vid !!
UFOHunter64: @shellynorthgate I have only seen them for sale in US otherwise, So I had
to buy from HK in the end, hard to find a decent MP4 player thats
cubleycat: great setup, its a pain how some of this kind of stuff isnt available in
Paul Stanton: thats superb, thanks alot. il get on that, nice of you to reply, take care
and post anything interesting you capture with that setup.
UFOHunter64: Hi John, Yes seems it is hard to get hold of now, I had a look, perhaps not
produced any more?.. there are other MP4 recorders but all seem quite
expensive such as the Archos, sorry can't help on another cheap MP4
recorder. Will take a look at your channel later thanks :-)
UFOHunter64: Cool, glad to have helped .. happy hunting :-)
offerman: Hey there bud. Brilliant video so thanks for taking the time.. I`m after a
couple of pointers I asked Lou20764 but he didn`t get back to me. Firstly I
have a Yukon Night Ranger. He recommended putting a 50mm lense on it which
i might try. Then i came across this video of yours. Can you tell me why
the Bresser Nightscope is better than the Yukon. I might get a Bresser as
looks good uses less batteries and more portable and the jdx looks way
better than the yukon small MPR unit (expensive)
UFOHunter64: HIya dazbanks71 yeah will work, check out this video from offerman first
before buying though also search ebay for '2.5 inch LCD Portable Mini DVR
SPY Camera Camcorder' as may be another option
UFOHunter64: But this is at a cost, you lose frame rates, so it becomes very jerky and
any light becomes a line so not so useful. Still 'night shot' is preferable
on a camera. and then i would try to get one that has a good Zoom function,
preferably an 'optical' zoom as opposed to digital as digital pixelates the
picture. my camcorder is a sony DCR-SR32 with 40 x optical and 2000 x
digital, its not useable at the far end of zoom , but gives a very good
picture to quite a distance.
UFOHunter64: HI Jeffrey, no problem. It all depends on your budget, I have to do things
cheap, so generally get my stuff from ebay. A night vision scope is best
for complete darkness, a digital NV scope gives the best vision for your
money. camcorders can be used at night but not very well, you will have to
get a sony because they have the 'night shot function' which sees Infrared,
but it doesn't 'see' that well unless you use 'super night shot' which some
have, and that gives more vision in darkness,
Paul Stanton: ok mate, il have to do the same by the look of it, how did you deal with
the customs issue, and tax and things like that? thanks for the reply.
UFOHunter64: @shellynorthgate easy, just order through ebay, it takes about 2 weeks to
come, no extra customs to pay or any complicated tax forms to fill out,
just comes straight to your door :-)
offerman: Update, just bought brand new Bresser unit 125 buy it now off ebay. Can you
tell me where i can`t buy the bracket/tripod you used in this video and wil
the whole bracket also mount to a tripod.? If you can answer my question
soon as you can mate , would be big help.
Darren Banks: Would this work with the Yukon ranger as well ?
TheSkywatcher2373: Thank you for posting this vid..i just got a ranger and tripod and was
searching for a good Cheap DVR to capture (and save my eyesite) lol..i seen
the ones on ebay and was wondering about the custom's charges and you have
answered all my question's..i'll order one this week..cheers mate...:)
UFOHunter64: Hi Offerman, Thanks for the comments ....I think the Bresser is similar to
the ranger, but I don't own a ranger so can't comment accurately. the
Bracket I use is a Yukon digital camera adapter, about 15 -20 quid on ebay.
and yes it also mounts to a tripod. You can use the Bresser in the daytime
also, although I find a sony camcorder with nightshot function and an IR
filter better for the daytime. Good luck in UFO hunting and hope this helps
jeffrey rose: thnx for the response;) ,i am new at camcorders and video cameras,just cant
seem fix myself up with ufo hunting equipment,i been researching and i am
more confused then ever to what camcorder or video camera that would let me
record what i am seeing (and i have been skygazing since the mid 1970's in
southwest florida night skys). can you suggest any camcorder or video
camera (like model no.)that i can record or video with to capture images
that i see?thnx any help would be greatly apprec.
UFOHunter64: Nowadays there are plenty of HD camcorders out there, and this would be a
good idea as it should return a good quality picture so you can distinguish
objects better. having the 'night shot' function is important for me
because i can add an IR filter to the lens and search in IR during the
day.if this is not what you want then I would reccomend any quality HD
camera with the best optical zoom you can find, an eye piece would be good
as the sun reflects of the screens making it hard to see.
D PRoZT: excellent setting JXD 990 very good
UFOHunter64: So i can't reccomend any actual camcorders as i haven't tried the newer HD
ones, but I will get one when my budget allows. I can recommend the one i
use as it does all the things I want, and if you are on a budget it can be
found cheaply. Hope that helps and good luck with finding one that suits
you. again if you visit ufonv.com there is plenty of good advise on there.
UFOHunter64: Hiya zeb120 .. I was lucky it was for sale on ebay, new in box .. the
seller i bought off sold a couple like that.. but after didn't see them
selling more, but i don't look now, so check out ebay regularly if you are
after one, you may find another :-)
