Re: RUBBER EYE CUP
Good luck. These russian NVs are most often old 1st or 2ndGen that even when new was considered as junk science even by the russians. They export this stuff to USA with a cheap retail price but they do not support accessory issues. Most USA 1stGen, as old as they are, is better than most Russian 3rd Gen. You get what you pay for in this case. :)

Yes, Call Night Owl Optics they are located in El Paso, Texas. I could fix it for you and I think I have a few Russian manufactured tubes laying around. contact me by replying to this page. GB...stewbison
I sound like the Russian manufactured image intensifier tube has gone bad. This Kalinka Zenith Piezon Russian NV monocular was and is manufactured in Russia. Have tried to use piezo handle on the top of the monocular. This is suspose to eliminate the battery for operation by using you hand and finger to pull down on the handle many time to charge up some capacitor and diodes.. GB...stewbison
Here we go. Sorry that you waited 7 months or maybe not. Here Meade's Instrment/Optics owner manual for your Meade NightView NV Monocular. If you have two eye pieces to look through and two optic lens on the other end then you have a binocular. But if there is only one eye piece and one Optic on the other end it a Monocular Bi--2, Mo-- Here is Meade web site for your monocular.. http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/binoculars/Meade%20Night%20View.pdf.

Hello, Sorry, about 85% of the problem with these Russian manufactured night
vision monocular and other NV devise are the crudely manufactured image
intensifier tubes.. US companies use this Russian night vision stuff with they
name and logo on them. Of course, when one buys one of this NV devises, it not
cheap but they are manufactured really cheap. GB...stewbison
Hello, I believe in the same thing. Night Owl Optics have a Russian manufacture that manufactures these monocular and they are cheaply made. The number 1 problem with them is that Russian cheap made image intensifier tube. Just setting on the shelve in the closet and it will destroy itself. Sorry, I could put another cheap Russian tube in but it might destroy it self before I receive this Russian image tube. Sorry Man... GB...stewbison
Hello, Welcome to the world of Russian night vision system. That is right, Night Owl Optics Cyclops NOCC3 is manufactured in Russian. The biggest problem with these monocular and binoculars and even scope is that they use cheap 1st generation Russian image tubes and everything else. It would be cost prohibitive to have it fixed, that is, if Night Owl Optics will fix it for you. Hint: Auction it on Ebay as night vision parts. Sorry, GB...stewbison
Hello, it seems another Russian manufactured night vision monocular has died. Sorry to say, but the image intensifier tube is bad. I really doubt that Night Owl Optics in El Paso, Texas will fix it for you. Because of it age of 5+ years old. Hint: auction it on eBay as night vision monocular parts. Sorry. I would fix it for you but the last one I fixed, it took me two months to find image intensifier tube and it was used. I wish you all the luck. GB...stewbison
Hello David. David you night vision doesn't use any batteries that one installs. You have Kalinka Zenit NV monocular that is Russian manufactured but is sold by Night Vision Optics. Your night vision uses a piezo electric ignitor to charges the batteries and charge a couple capacitors.
The lever on top to the Zenit monocular is activated by squeezing the handle that is covered in a rubber type material. Just keep squeezing on the lever and in while things will start working. Best of Luck David. GB...stewbison
My optics only have two stickers one where you hold on to the unit and one under the eye piece if both of these stickers are gone ? Well maybe throw then out the window the next bridge that you cross ?
