ment wheel. This wheel will allow
you to be able to maximize the
DNVM brightness to area you are
viewing. Turn the wheel back and
forth while viewing through the
device to lower or increase the
brightness of the unit. Too much
gain will give you a white or washed out image. Too low of a gain will
produce a black or snowy/grainy image.
To make a video connection:

Video-out jack on the DNVM.
2) Connect the other end of the cable
to the TV/monitor video input jack.

10 days) remove the battery. This will prevent leakage of the battery

clean their surface with a Photographic lens cleaning tissue.
• Keep lens cap/daylight filter on when not in use.
• The DNVM is not harmful to the user or the environment.
• Do not disassemble: it will void your warranty.
• Evaluate the scope functionality by looking through it in a lit environment
• Adverse atmospheric conditions such as fog, smog, or haze and a
lack of ambient light (moon or starlight) may diminish the effective
viewing distance.
• If you use the rubber eyecaps for a long period of time, you may suffer skin inflammation. If you develop any symptoms, consult a doctor
