To answer you, YES - a lot of gun manufacturers have used Tritium in their sights for years now - some hate them, stating it kills their night vision - but those are generally the folks that can't shoot worth a crap anyways 8-)

Tritium sights are super for night shooting. They are just bright enough that if you know how to handle your firearm -- you got the edge... .. ..

Do you only get 1 tritium vial?
If yes, then $25 is kinda expensive...
Why not 3?

Three wouldn't fit We came up with the best fit of time, prep, and materials - Spyder, you CAN be the one without Tritium in your Pocket Mini, it's no skin off of my nose - honest. It's more than fair considering the loops we jumped through to make it happen - I should have MY personal pair in my hot, sticky, little hands, SOON (but never soon enough !).

Spyder, there is not only the cost of the Tritium vials, there is the time involved in the precise machine work. Not to mention buying and having the proper tools to do the inlay properly.

It's just really cool material, that seems to go well with a nice personal laser! 8-)

It's not a huge money making scheme, I can tell you that...

Just saw your Tritium inserts, cool idea * * I bet the blue ones would be perfect for gun sights, as blue is the best color at night and saves your night vision (for the people saying it ruins night-adapted vision, blue would be the best.)

Anywho, yesterday as I was perusing the various nick-naks that DX sells (my gosh...they sell most everything!), I came across this, looks exactly like the vials you guys are using.

http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.6830

And I bet somebody could ingest this small amount Tritium and be fine, since there is naturally occurring Tritium in our water supplies anyway.

The spectral sensitivity maximum at night is at around 510 nm, which is still green (tending to blue). Also light of this color would be the worst for preserving night vision, exactly because the eye is most sensitive to it. The best is red illumination.

These tiny vials are so small that I really don't think they are bright enough to mess up your night vision. (IMO)

The green one is the brightest...

Because they are going for visibility NOT the preservation of night vision.

Well, preservation of night vision is important to pilots when flying at night, at least that's what the helicopter pilots say that I work with. But if they were going for sheer visibility, why not use the blue-green (507nm) that is the peak for night adapted vision? Because the runway lights here at my airport are more true blue, probably around 460-470nm (I can only guess, but I know for sure they are not cyan, ~507nm, colored).

Airports use a number of colors for different purposes. There's probably even a standard about it (there's definitely for things inside the cockpit). But preserving night vision certainly is not a design criterion as airports generally try to be visible. Actually, when I happen to fly at night (as a passenger), these blue or rather violet lights do seem rather dim due to the short wavelength, and I've wondered about that.

Generally speaking, if you want things to be visible, you use green. That's why the fluorescent exit markers on the floors of commercial aircraft or emergency exit signs or (usually) dashboard illumination is green. On the other hand, if you want maximum light sensitivity after the light switches off, you use red - that's why amateur astronomers use red filters to handle their eyepieces at night. In the movie "The boat", there's a scene where the watch, before going up to the bridge, wears dark red goggles inside the brightly lit sub. That way they can move around and do work but are already nearly fully dark adapted once they're outside.

So, if you want the crosshairs to be visible, use green; if you want whatever is beyond the crosshairs to be visible, use red.

Jayrob, thanks, it was your icon that made me use it I also have a nice one of a full lunar eclipse (primary focus at 2000mm) which I once had in an animated gif with Hale-Bopp, like yours. But I didn't find that any more (the animated gif; I've got the moon photo).
