I bought this image intensifier off eBay, thinking I would try to make some sort of night vision monocular. I have searched the internet high and low and can't find anything about it.  Maybe somebody can shed some light on how to wire it without frying it.

I would say it is Gen 2 and most likely for some specialized piece of equipment. I don't know what it went in.

Hmm, that link doesn't seem to work for me, what did you type in for a search on liberated manuals? Just the part number? Thanks for your help.

Odd, it takes me right to the tech manual PDF. Look for TM 9-5855-253-10
