Question about Night Owl Optics Cyclops Pro NOCP5 Monocular
I just bought one at a garage sale. The IR powers up, both with standard AA batteries and 3V lithium, but the night vision will not power up. I know, I know, it's from a garage sale, but I was hoping there's some trick of which I am unaware. Thanks in advance.

Testimonial: "Thank you. "
Yes, If you turned the Night Owl on during the daylight hours, or looking directly into bright lights.
If you have done this more than few time it could have damaged the image intensifier tube. If this happen to many times, it's finny, kaput, so long, it gone south, and gone bye-bye.
Looking at bright lights is damaging to NV devise. The intensity plate in the image tube, magify the existing light about 3000 to 8000 (radian light from the stars, moon and other light sources).
You have 80mm front lens on the Night Owl NOCP5. This mean that more light can inter into image tube.
Sir, have you been looking at bright lights, operate NV system during the day, have you? If not, there could be something else worng with you Night Owl. stewbison
