Paper Abstract

A compact, lightweight viewing system that provides a magnified, inverted image of the phosphor of an image intensifier tube is described. The compact dimensions have been achieved by repeated folding of the optical path by the use of a polarising beamsplitter. The approach taken to the design, its internal structure and method of operation are detailed.
