Congratulations on the purchase of your Bushnell Night Vision Product. Bushnell Night Vision products are comprised of high quality image intensifier tubes and optics. Bushnell Night Vision products amplify existing light, allowing you to see in dark conditions too dark for the naked eye.

HOW NIGHT VISION WORKS

Bushnell Night Vision products collect and amplify existing light through the objective lens, which is then focused on the image intensifier. Inside the intensifier, a photocathode is “excited” by the light and converts the photon energy into electrons. These electrons accelerate across an electrostatic field inside the intensifier and strike a phosphor screen (like a green monochrome TV screen) which emits an image that you can see. It is the acceleration of electrons, which provides gain and enhances the image. This is a Generation I device.

Your Night Vision device is ideal for a variety of professional and recreational uses including the following:

Wild Life Observation

Astronomy

Boating / Marine Use

Police / Law Enforcement

Search and Rescue

Security

Property Management

GETTING STARTED

Installing Batteries

This device operates on two AA batteries. To install, remove the battery compartment cover located on the bottom of the unit. Insert the batteries into the compartment so that the positive (+) and negative (-)terminals of the batteries match the markings on the battery cover. Replace the battery cover.

Use and Testing

If you wish to test your night vision device in a lighted

area, be sure the objective lens cap (1) is

covering

the objective

lens

prior to pressing the “ON” button (2). The objective lens cap has a pinhole opening to admit a small

amount
