This is interesting. I used the 3v output with
mine and the output was very dim. I could hardly see it.

The LED is rated for the 3V of the reticle output. If it was plugged into
the 6V output its fried...I did this to mine, so I know. IMO, plugging it
into a 9V battery would kill it for sure..

Try plugging a 9v battery to it. That should make it work.

I usually polar align when there is enough light

I ran late and had to plug in the LED and it did
not light up. I tried adjusting the illumination
settings on the handcontroller, up to the max level, and still no luck.
Any suggestions on how to test the LED before
calling it 'defective'? It's a brand new unit. I
bought the mount (and the PASILL4) barely two
months ago, and never really thought about testing the LED.
I read that somebody here plugged the LED in the
6V port. What are the specs of the LED? Is that an option?
