I was worried that would be the case.

Thank you anyway

That will be tough, chances are the studio took any type of lens, telescope or even from other objects, and heavily modified it.

Oh I understand its a non-working prop, I'm simply trying to ID the lenses used.

Unfortunately these are movie props and do not actually function in the way depicted in Jurassic Park. For filming most movies, production companies simply put a green film over the camera to generate a "night vision effect". These would be way too small of a unit to have a night vision capability for 1993 and no where near a zoom feature as also depicted in the movie. This is simply a bit of movie magic, but not realistic.

I've been searching for help from experts in identifying lenses used in 1993, can anyone here help?

I've been told they 'may' be Ocean rated marine night vision and some online research states they are 'starlight scope'...but I have no idea.
These photo's show some better angles.
