Mike,

Thanks. I hope so to. I know that I posted pictures of markings etc. when I started this thread (many years ago) but it would be better of an owner of one of these devices would lead us through what his has to offer.

Regards,

Gordon

ogpsycho,

Interesting photos. Thanks for posting them. The attached showed a large head light type device and I became curious about how it was used so I went searching the internet and found pictures of another version of this sight. An NS-71 and it show the "headlight" type device mounted. It appears to be the receiver that intensifies the light. The pictures show the NS-71 in use with a Russian helmet. I imagine that the NSG-66 was used in a similar fashion.

Regards,

Gordon

The NSG box included two types of infrared "glasses". The big glasses for the lights of the vehicles and the smaller one for the flashlights/handlights.

Here a picture some picture.

1. The operation manual and a NSG66 liner.
2. A pictures of the liner and installed NSG and the box.
3. The glasses "Nr. 8"
