Testimonial: "thank you for trying but i have already tried and it is nowhere. i bought it off ebay. difficult to get one even from Russian sites"
As you probably know by now, you have in your hands a CHEAP russian 1st Gen. NV device and that whatever $$ you paid for it was $$ way too much. The russians make these things for the export (think USA) market from left over 1st Generation junk that did not work well even for THEM. The USA 1st Gen. is to them what our 3rd Gen. is to us.
There is no repair or service centers for this russian NV in the USA. This is a prime example of 'Buyer Beware'. If it looks too good to be true, it's probably junk. Save your $$ and buy American.
Remember that '1stGen(generation) is very OLD NV technology,(this what we used in Viet-Nam in the early'60's, it was like 'rocket science' then, but it was all we had) the picture will be very grainy and fuzzy and the picture will appear to be sorta floating about. Pointing it at a bright light can burn out the element. Yikes! There is NOTHING you can do to adjust this to make it look good. The 2nd Gen. is only a little better, just a little more expensive. The 3rdGen. is much better and you will have a pretty clear picture and happy results. When you see these TV shows where they are using NV, they most likely are using 3rdGen NV. You will spend much more $$ for these units. The 4thGen. NV is the latest and top dog but you will have to hock your car, your dog and give up eating for a long time to afford these units. Go to; www.nightvision4less.com/night_vision_scopes.htm and you will see all four types of NV USA made. I have nothing to do with nor am I associated with this company, I simply give it to you as a reference point in your quest for information about NV products. Good luck :)

SOURCE: I lost the eyepiece for
Contact the company who manufacture ths NV-300. I can tell you now ti's manufactured in Russia. Well, check the internet for "Night Vision 300, Also, this could be Night Owl Optics, Bushnell Optics, Lebel/Zinth Optics, ATN, etc.
Send me a picture and give me the diameter of the eyepiece on both ends. Most of these monoculars will basically have the same parts. GB...stewbison

There are only 6 versions of night vision showing, it sounded like you said f5, but the only one that looks like yours is a FT 300.
This requires a 3V lithium battery, you must make sure it's lithium .
Duracell D/L 1/3 N , radio shack 23265, Eveready 2L-76.
Here are the instructions, '
To use, depress the Energizer button, and release. A gradual fading of the image is typical. Press the Energizer button again to re-power. If your unit includes a self-energizingpower source (i.e., does not require batteries), simply depress and release the top lever one time and repeat as necessary.3.The infrared (IR) illuminator works to enhance the available ambient light in areas of extreme darkness, or brighten the electronic image in very dim ambient light. Utilize as needed by depressing the IR button (next to the Energizer button onmost units). Also, please note that on self-energizing units only, the detachable IR illuminator requires a 3-volt lithium battery.
Let me say that this is not a IF, infra red, Infra-red picks of heat from the environment, so when you look at something say a person you see their body heat, they cost thousands.
This is just a night vision, it does not even say what GEN this is.
There are three GEN's, GEN 1, GEN 2, GEN 3.
GEN 1 is cheap, GEN 3 is expensive. Starlight is the best, but your looking at spending 3000,00 for a good one.
Don't expect this one to be that good.
Here is the manual.
If it does not open, or can't download, then download foxit reader, it's free and allows you to view PDF files online.
