It’s April, and the new Sedona UFO Tour Guide season has started. With new equipment, and more info than ever before, the UFO tours just keep getting better here in Sedona. The springtime brings ORION to the west of the zenith when we go out, and Sirius brings quite a halo when seen in the PVS-7s.

Your Sedona UFO Tour Guide hasn’t used it to catch anything amazing yet, but I said I’d be posting video from the UFO Tours, so here is a sample of the quality of what the PVS-7 sees, and the iPhone can record using my 3D printed interface.
Wednesday, I started looking up adaptors to make an iPhone 5 match up to the PVS-7 generation III night vision equipment. I found one that was gun-metal engineering, and universal, but it was $200. I figured there had to be a less expensive way to get the job done.
Thursday, I decided to 3D design a holder for the phone, which would push right onto the eyepiece of the PVS-7. Using Cheetah 3D, I designed a square receiver for the iPhone, extremely light weight, with a hole for the camera, and slots to avoid depressing the power button and volume controls. Then, it was time for good ‘ol Maker Bot software to create the print file for the 3D printer.
Friday (this morning), the completed piece, due to micrometer measurements of the iPhone and its case, came out flawlessly. It holds the phone securely, and lines it up directly over the eyepiece of the night vision gear. I rounded the corners using a belt sander, and the unit is ready to debut TONIGHT.
