i was out for the first time sunday with my scope.
it was about +5C out and i had no illumination of the reticle.
brought the rifle out today to clean it and it worked again.
does the battery fail when its cold out should i have a couple in my pocket to keep them warm and swap em out when i need it?
any one else have issues in the cold?

Oh and i got to say unfricken believable optics i have ever looked through.
I've had a few different NXS scopes in much colder temps in Alberta and Alaska with not problems with the illumination.
You may want to put a fresh battery in and give it another chance.
Are you looking through the scope in daylight, for the illumination? Also the intensity may need to be set.
