Re: reflected IR

Sure - with less light reflected there would be an improvement but still be SOME reflection. That and some tape on the scope bezel would be the two main recommended facebook type fixes. :D A shade on the torch or scope avoids any light source that could reflect into the scope period so it has to be ...

Re: reflected IR

My bodged sunshade,a piece of black plastic downpipe with a jubilee clip holding it on to the objective and almost reaching the over barrel mod.What a difference!

Re: Loss of posts/threads

Strange that its still happening then, must be a forum setting, tick box, or permission thing IMO.

Re: Loss of posts/threads

Given it uploaded, I'm wondering if there is an admin setting to allow specific/all members to view files it hosts.
