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.

Can the tubes in those things just spontaneously do that or did you use the shit out of it once you owned it?

Just curious if I need to be taking extra precautions with mine.
