Guide :Optics : Cyclops Compact NOCC3 Monocular

Operating Problem The optic device still turns on and off, and the infa-red works on it as well, the two functions of the device. However, when I turn the device on and look through the monocular at night or in darkness, i see nothing and no light or image whatsoever is being put through the eyepiece. In short, i see the same thing while looking through the monocular while it is on, as i would while it is off. The problem MAY be due to light exposure, I'm not sure. Anyways, please help me or give me any input, because I'm thinking about just finding a place to send it for repair.

I bought a Night Owl Vision Cyclops 1 monocular marked Made in Russia from a man last weekend at a flea market. It is in pristine condition and the gentleman said it worked but he hadn't used it in a long time and that the 9 volt battery was dead. I checked and the battery was indeed dead. I took a chance and bought it for 45 dollars. I installed a new 9 volt battery in the unit and a new 1.5 volt battery in the IR tube. Knowing not to try it during the day, I waited till night. When I pressed the momentary switch all I got was a green lighting storm in the view finder that lasted about 5 seconds. It does the same thing every time I press the switch. Can you please help me as to what may be the problem? The IR tube works fine. Thankyou, Stanley


Hello, Is there two switches on the NV monocular? If so, one is for the IR illuminator and other is for turn the scope off/on. Also, does each switch have a LED associated with it? Green for turning on the monocular and red LED when the IR illuminator is on. Now the IR switch is a momentary switch once you push on the button it turn on IR. If you release the IR button it turns off the IR.. What do you mean by green lightening storm in the view finder? Generation 1 image intensifier tubes when ignited by 15KV it will glow green in the tube. If you look through the eye pieces there will be a green glow with fluctuating intensity as bright light impact the plate in the image tube. GB...stewbison

I got a Night Guardian night vision monocular scope. It doesn't work, but you can see the red pale light on its small reticule if switched on. I dont know why it doesnt work anymore, before it is fine. It was only stocked for a while inside a cup board. What is the problem why it is not working? Please advise thank you


These NV monoculars and this Guardian is made by ATN. Normally what happen is the image intensifier tube has gone back to Red Star country. In other words, it gone! The reason why the IR light up is it on a different circuit and has nothing to do with the internal electronic of this NV monocular.All this IR light does is to provide invisiable light to inhance the image on image tube on very dark/clouded nights. Someone else using and NV devise can see IR light on your monocular and vise versa to you, you can see its IR light. stewbison

TZS-2 Hi, I have a problem with TZS-2 Russian night vision. I can not light the lamp, just a little light around phosphor plate. I measured voltage multimeter which gives a voltage converter, and I realized that if disconnected and has 725 V, and when it is connected to only 80 V. Can someone please advise me how do I fix it? It is the faulty voltage converter? Please write me at my e-mail: [email protected] Thank you Peter (Czech Republic)


The voltage should be good. It is possible the Infra-red emitter tube might be at fault. The night vision can work under a full moon, so test the vision part to make sure it is working correctly. If you have an infra red/IR remote control for your TB set, you can test the might vision using that remote to see if the night vision is working.You can use a second working unit to see if the illuminator is actually working. The illumination is not visible light without assistance.

Joe- Today I checked out my friends scope and specifically looked over the misaligned mount. Tomorrow, with the help of some contractors we are going to remove the scope, cut the bolts, and then break the pedestal free from the glue fastening it to the concrete. My friend is an archeologist and has an electronic theodolite/compass device, which we plan to use to realign the scopes pedestal to true north. I found our magnetic declination for our location and date at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/geomagmodels/struts/calcDeclination and will correct the alignment from magnetic to true north. Once this is done the wedge angle needs to be correct and I am worried because I didn't see any adjustment mechanism for altering the altitude angle of the wedge. My friend says he gave Meade the exact Latitude/Longitude coordinates, and thinks that probably the wedge is made with correct angle already. Right now, I'm thinking the only way to know for sure is to try to polar align the scope after it is remounted facing true north. If the angle is wrong and it turns out the wedge really isn't adjustable, is there any option but a new mount? In additon to the above, my friend tells me there is another possible problem, the autostar has to have the date and time reentered every night it has been used. Is this due to the non-functioning GPS? And,more importantly, will this effect the Goto functions? Again- thanks in advance for your help- my friends trust in my abilities to help greatly exceed my level of understanding- so you are needed and appreciated... Sincerely- Scott R.


Hum? I have never heard of a Meade wedge that was not adjustable?It might be possible to SHIM up the wedge slightly by using either thin metal shims, but DOWN would be a problem.Does he have a tripod for the telescope? If he does you can try to do a polar alignment on the tripod and see what happens.???You can find a Meade Super Wedge or Ultra Wedge from time to time on AstroMart.com It will cost you $12 to join so you can fully use the web site. You can place a WANTED AD on the web site saying you are looking for a wedge, and try to find a used wedge at reduced cost.HOPEFULLY, it will be correct, and also you may be able to use the bolts coming out of the pier and put some bolts on them to RAISE or lower the angle?Look at this pier-http://www.astro.shoregalaxy.com/telescope%20pier%202.jpg

Hello there, my name is Paul and I had just recently purchased the Vivitar Refractor Telescope 60X/120X with Tripod. I have assembled everything correctly, however I have tried to view the moon, but I cannot see a sing thing. All I see is a blurry light and the lens is not focused at all no matter how many times I adjusted it. If you could please help in seeing clearly I'd appreciate it very much. Thank you.


This is one of the worst telescopes you could have purchased. Plastic eyepieces and a plastic focuser! We receive many complaints about not being able to focus. Try again--- next time buy one of these which is the best value in amateur astronomy.http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942
