It's nitrogen pressurized to 7 psi, is that correct? Have you seen it yourself or have an image? Could it be on the outside of the dome?

As a side note, just because it has 7lbs of pressure it doesn't mean it been purged properly with nitrogen. It's a long process to properly purge a camera if it's been opened. Is there a humidity sensor in the unit, visible from the outside? Sometimes they come that way.
