The Night Cougar is a light weight dual
eye/tube goggle system that is comfortable to wear and easy to use. Powered by
two high quality 1st. gen+ light intensifier
tubes and using fast precision optics the
Night Cougar has one of the clearest and
brightest images available in a 1st gen
Combine all of the above with a built in
infrared illuminator that lets you see in
total darkness and you will be on your way
to exploring even the darkest of places.
The Night Cougar goggle system is a complex opticoelectronic system for individual
use. The device consists of an objective
lens assembly, eyepieces and a body. The
body contains two 1st Gen.+ image intensifier tubes assembly with an integrated high
voltage power source and the three volt battery housing.
Objective lens protective covers are
intended to protect objective lens from
dust and scratches. It also will act as a
daylight filter, allowing you to test the
scope in daylight or other bright light situations.
NOTE: Do not test the scope in daylight
conditions even with the daylight filter/lens
cap on for more than ten (10) minutes.
NOTE: We suggest that you focus the diopter
during daylight with the filter on.
NOTE: The front lenses should be readjusted
as you view objects at different distances.
Infra-red (IR) illuminators, are common to
night vision. The IR light greatly enhances
the performance of the Night Cougar while
remaining almost totally invisible to the
naked eye. The IR illuminator on the Night
Cougar is located next to the front lenses.
To turn the IR on or off push the button
marked “IR”. It is important to remember
that the IR illuminator is simply an infra
red light source, and like any light source,
it may loose its effectiveness over a great
NOTE: The IR will automatically turn off when
the unit’s power is turned off.

• Take the Night Cougar out of the case.
• Install the battery into the housing with the
polarity order as shown on the scope. Battery Type: 3 Volt Lithium, #CR123A .
• Push the button marked “I/O” to turn the
unit on with the protective lens cover still
attached to the lens. Do not turn the unit
on in the daytime without the protective lens cap on. You should see green
glow in the eyepiece. You may notice a
persistent green glow for up to five (5)
minutes after you have turned the unit
off. This is normal for the 1st Gen Light
intensifier tube.
• Observe the scene and adjust the diopter
for optimal image clarity. Focus the front
lenses until the image and the grain are
both sharp.
• You may now enter a dark environment or
simply shut the lights off in order to darken
the room.
• Next, remove the lens cap/daylight filters.
Adjust the front lenses for distance of the
focus. You should not have to readjust the

straps and plase the
headgear on your
3) You will want to
tighten the side straps
(Figure 1) fist.
4) Then secure the
top strep (Figure 2).
This one is rather tight
so you might need to
remove it from your
head, when you are
adjusting the strap.
5) And last you will
want to adjust your
chin strap (Figure 3).
Now you are ready to mount the Night
Cougar on to your headgear.
1) Remove the
already adjausted
your head.
2) Slide the Night

• If the device is not to be us d for extended
period of time (more than 10 days) remove
the battery.
• Avoid touching lenses. If fingerprints or
traces of dirt or dust appear, clean their
surface with a Photographic lens cleaning
• Keep lens cap/daylight filters on when not
in use.
• The Night Cougar is not harmful to the user
or the environment.
• Do not disassemble except to clean the front
lenses and eyepieces: it will void your warranty.
• Evaluate the device function by looking
through it in a lit environment with the daylight filter lens cap on. Never use in daylight
without the daylight filter lens cap on.
• Never point the Night Cougar at a bright light
• Adverse atmospheric conditions such as
fog, smog or haze and a lack of ambient
light (moon or starlight) may diminish the
effective viewing distance.
You may need to clean the eyepiece of the
Night Cougar from time to time in order to
guarantee top performance. When you
receive your Night Cougar you should check
for dust on the eyepiece of the unit.
First you will need to remove the eyepiece.
To do that you will need to initially loosen the
2 set screws that can be found on the base.
Then unscrew the eyepiece counter-clockwise to remove it.
NOTE: You do not have to remove the set
screws completely, they are very small and
easy to misplace.
CAUTION: Use only Photographic lens cleaning tissue on these surfaces. Be careful not
to scratch or smudge any of these surfaces.
When using compressed air to blow dust
away, make sure to avoid inverting the can
while spraying. This can cause frozen propellant to exit the can, which can cause serious problems with the glass and phosphor
