    Well, my old stand by PVS-14 appears to be experiencing its last days:
    I don't know how old it is or what tube is in it, but its been a good one.
    I thought everyone might want to see what "shading" or "going to air" looks like.
    I will be replacing the tube with a new ITT or L3 tube in the near future.
    Anyone have questions or comments . . . .ask away.
    General:
    1. The tube was never exposed to bright light
    2. It was stored in a pelican case with lenscaps on
    3. Never stored with batteries.
    4 Never dropped.
