Went through the trouble of taking some pics so might as well put them up here for later reference. The setup is as follows:

>Dark as Fuck basement
>GSCI PVS-14C manual gain 4G Elite Onyx Plus White Phosphor FoM 2300+
>ZenitCo Perst-3 dual visible/IR tactical laser designator with IR illuminator
>ZenitCo Klesh gen.3 2IKS+Laser tactical IR illuminator with IR laser
>a very confused cellphone camera that doesn't have a millionth of the dynamic range required for this particular task even with HDR on

The two devices are pretty different. The Klesh is more of a little WML with a laser, a bit like a Streamlight TLR except there are no visible beamz coming out of it. The Klesh is all IR and is useless if you do not have NODs. The laser can be turned on/off, the light can be turned on/off, there's a strobe mode for giving your NOD an autogating workout.


The Perst is closer to the more common offerings like DBALs, PEQs, and so on. The Perst-3 has a visible laser, IR laser, IR illuminator, power settings can be set independently. The IR illuminator can be focused and has a diffuser cap.

Starting with the Perst-3, IR light only with diffuser on. Minimum power on the light, minimum gain on the NOD. Cellphone camera isn't struggling too bad here, just doesn't quite show the sharpness of the Onyx tube and it did color the WP a little green.

Perst-3, diffused IR illuminator and laser on, both minimum power, laser dot can be seen on the floor. NOD still on minimum gain.

Raising the Perst-3 power actually meant I had to put the daytime cap on the PVS-14.

The cellphone is struggling hard here, daytime cap is on and PVS-14 gain is at maximum, with the Perst-3 on minimum power again. The dynamic range of eyeballs is impressive, everything can be seen fine when not looking through a little phone camera.

Klesh time now. Full power laser only. Yes, just the splash from the laser is just nuking the room.

Klesh with illuminator only, it doesn't have a diffuser so it's a bright spot with a bit of splash.

Klesh light and laser, the laser again is washed out because cellphone camera. I'll have to take pictures outside sometime to show the differences at long range and also show what the Perst illuminator does without a diffuser.

That's it for now.

welp I'm retarded, the Klesh comes with a pressure pad that has a dial to set laser and illuminator power. This makes a pretty strong case for the Klesh as an IR las/illum device for an SBR type of setup, even if sighting in the Klesh will be a bit more of a pain since it has to be done in night vision. More NOD Perst/Klesh comparison stuff coming soon.

Looking good! Cellphone pics through NODs are always a bit tricky.
