A) Night vision scope. Body covered in black rubber. Two lenses on either end of the scope, one to look into and the other to point at the scene to be viewed. Has buttons saying "IR +/-" and "GAIN +/-," and "ZOOM," a socket for "VIDEO OUT," and a screw-in hole for attaching the scope to a tripod. Strap attached. Printed on the scope are the brand name "Meade," "Nightview," a warning label about safety of using infrared equipment, and manufacturing information. B) Case. Black canvas case with a strap, zips closed, contains pockets with additional lenses. Used by the Campo Minutemen. Deborah Sattler, a member of the Campo Minutemen, wrote the following to accompany this artifact: "Night vision equipment was very popular with the Minutemen. This is an inexpensive unit used by a Minuteman. Most full time Minutemen invested in more expensive models."
