Pitch black I have a older model monocular night owl which was working fine up until a few months ago. I recently tried to use it but I can't see anything through it now. I changed the batteries and still nothing but darkness. I bought it second hand but it worked fine then. It has not been rough handled nor have I tried to look through it into direct light. Is this a fixable problem or should I justt junk the thing?

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 have a 243 cal single shot that snaped when fired. Tried different ammo. still misfires


Firing pin is worn. It may make a slight dent in the primer, but not quite enough to press against the anvil inside of the primer, hence the misfiringTalk to a gunsmith to see if he has any spares, or has the ability to repair the firing pin.

Bushnell telescope 78-9669


You must first learn how to focus it in the day time. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- do NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object. The red dot FINDERSCOPE must also firt be aligned with the main tube -- it is used to POINT the scope at an exact spot in the sky.Objects in the night sky are tiny and the scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything. Locate a local Astronomy club and they will help you. Also read the manual completely.www.telescopeman.orgwww.telescopeman.uswww.telescopeman.info

GoTo Problem Please Help... im and going crazy!!! I have a Celestron Nextstar SLT 130 GoTo scope and love the pictures it produces but cant get it to GoTo very well. It dose the three star alignment, 1 star alignment and solar alignment fine and have no problems with alignment, level the scope well and set the time to nearly the second. Once aligned and i start to move the scope around the night sky, if i try to ask the socpe to slew back to a star, even an alignment satr, it goes in the general direction but doesn't bring the star into the view field and is off by a significant amount. I have tried centering the star in the view and then asking the scope to find that star and it goes out of the view by the same amount every time. Im goging crazy. I thought it was a motor problem and swaped the scope at the store but the new one is exactly the same. I just dont know what is wrong. Im in the southern skies and only reviews is for the northern, dont know if this matters. Any help would be fantastic. Just cant get it to slew to any objests correctly!


Be sure that the telescope is configured for EQ SOUTH mode to tell it is in the southern hemisphere. Once a star alignment is completed NEVER manually move the telescope. Use only the control panel to slew. Everytime the telescope is move by hand, the motors do not know it has been done, and assume it is still pointing at the old direction. Check the manual for setup.Here: http://www.celestron.com/c3/images/files/downloads/NexStar_SLT_manual.pdf

Hi, just bought a Hawke Varmint II 4-16x44 AO. I started searching for the zero point, before I mounted it on the rifle Itself. Because I wanted to make a bigger adjustments from the mounts when bore sighting. When trying to make a final adjustments on the scope I lost the windage. Elevation works fine but the windage does not. The actual knob itself turns but crosshairs do not move much. Also as I turn it to the right, the sound of clicks are not usual for it anymore. They make very low sound. Is it possible that I broke something inside when I did too many turns? I know that if turned to the up or down too much then right and left can move only a little and otherwise, but I tried different ways. Thank You in advance!


The Hawke comes with a good, lifetime warranty. They are reported to be fast and fair about these things. The best thing you can do is send it back and they will fix it or replace it.
