I think I would rather look through the 20 inch Dobsonian telescope that you are stood by in your profile picture! I have the feeling that a view through a telescope should be unaldulterated, just photons from space entering the mark one eyeball. If you want to go to electronic imaging then use a ccd or cmos camera. I used to use an image intensifier on one of my photographic guide telescopes to try and make life easier, they worked OK but I would not have liked to spend the night hours looking into one. I assume the new devices are smoother and  the noise reduced. What is the difference between these devices and an electronic eyepiece, is it that they are cumulative?
