I need the instruction manual. Also, what is the top red light for? Just what does it do


Hey, you got you self a Russian NV monocular. There should be two switches. One switch is to turn on/off the unit. The second switch is used to turn on the IR illuminate--which means infrared red light. To improve the night capabilities of the NV monocular. Ther are two LED's one green for on/off switch and one LED that is red for the IR illuminator.

NO-NO-NO's

When the NV monocular isn't been used, take the batteries out. The worst NO-NO's is looking through monocular during the daylight hours. The do have metal front lens cover with a small hole in the center for a few minutes of viewing during the day. Remember---Use Only During the Night---Do look at bright lights, don't let the kids play with it and make dam sure that Grandfather doesn't get his hand on it. He will be doing long range peeping at the neighbors or the lady that leaves here blinds open during the. Kid-No, Grandfathers-N0, Fathers-that up to them. If pop going some night look see. I'll make a bit his survival ratio has raised demise by 70%. stewbison

Hello, on your Night Owl Optic NV100, it same as the Kalinka Zenith NV. First, you IR switch is a montary switch. As long as your finger push the button it stay on. Release the button it goes off.

The montary green glow after shuting off you monocular NV devise is do to capacitors discharging and keep the image intensifier tube on for a few seconds. The switch on/off is a Russian computer plastic switch it could stick sometimes. See if the rubber cover over the switch can be removed with taken it apart. If the rubber cover can be removed. Then a good switch cleaner to the clean the switches (both at the same time) See if this works. stewbison

What kind of batteries do i use and where do the batteries go?


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

I have a NV-100 Compact with illuminator should I have to hold the switch pushed in all the time I am trying to use it?


Not all the time, but if you release the button the image will fade to nothing in a minute or so. This is how it switches itself off. Don't expose it to light while it's powered up as this might damage it.

Problem with my atn 390 nv scope


Observe the IR illuminator with a digital camera and see if it if fluctuating in output brightness. If that is OK, the problem may be in the HV circuit. They are both easy to fix if the person has some experience.
