What are my options?

I bought the TELE VUE TNVC FONEMATE NIGHT VISION SMART PHONE ADAPTER SYSTEM but all I get are blurry pics. It's hard for me to see through the phone.

Does anyone make a lens adapter for a Nikon DSLR?

What else is out there?

Here is a PVS 14 attached to a Canon DSLR recording a USPSA Classifier shot at night.

Any ideas where to get the filter that fits? Or, do I need to buy multiples to match?

Thanks for the help.

I tried to make the DSLR lens adapter work,
but the image quality was very lacking, but
it may have been the lens I tried using.

I have had great success with the Tele-Vue
on my Samsung S8. What issue are you having
with yours?

Edit to add: I just saw Ryan's video above, and
his quality is way better than what I was getting.
I was using a 50mm (I think) on a D7500. I'll dig
the lens out of my gear to verify.

I get blurry pics with the Tele-Vue. Not sure if I need to change the focus on the PVS or the phone.

Basic auto focus on the phone should be gtg.
You will always have to focus the NOD.
Constantly & continuously. Whether you
are using it with your phone, or on a helmet.

Have you focused the eye piece & the
objective yet?

I was trying to post some sample images,
but I can't get my server links to work. I'll
try it another way. Aha! Success!

Thanks for the help and the pics!

It must be an operator malfunction on my part. I'd be happy with the quality of your pics if I can get that.
