Re: Homemade nv scope 3

I'll say it again - absolutely terrific work and the first working NV scope I've seen using a camera at the second focal plane thus allowing retention of the zoom function. You were quite right to try this out on a cheap Hawke scope, but if you were to make this work on a good quality scope such as ...

Re: Homemade nv scope 3

Very nice!!! I like the magnet/reed switch idea What camera have you used and do you have a lens fitted to it. Since you're using a camera generated reticle would I be right in thinking that all the ocular lenses have been removed leaving only the zoom lenses in the helicoid tube. If you manage to m...

Re: Photon screws!!!

It will almost certainly be metric threads- 2.84 would make it M3, but from memory, that seems a bit small, I thought they were M4 Go to B&Q or Homebase and buy a small packet of M3 and M4 screws. Once you have established what thread it is, then there are loads of E bay sellers who do socket he...

Re: x-eye E3+ thermal uk

Detection distance is the same with both the XP38 and the XQ38 because that is set by the pixel size and lens focal length and it's the same for both models. That's another way of saying that both have the same resolution. The XQ gives you more magnification, and a narrower field of view The XP give...

Re: Wanted Neil mckillop drone mount tikka t3

They're about as easy to find as rocking horse s**t
Only 12 were ever made and I think that those that have them would only sell if they were also getting rid of their Dron pro.

Re: x-eye E3+ thermal uk

There's little or no difference in how thermal images are processed by different makes and models of thermal - most of it, like the colour palettes are firmware add-ons that don't improve image quality. Given the price difference, there's definitely some cost saving going on in the quantum lites ver...

Re: x-eye E3+ thermal uk

Must admit, I'd never heard of it before But at £2000 for a 17 micron sensor and 19mm lens it doesn't compare with the Pulsar Quantum Puslar lite XQ23V with a 17 micron sensor and 23mm lens for less than £1200 OK, you don't get wifi with that Pulsar However, you can buy a Pulsar Helion XQ38F for les...

Re: Anyone know where the best deals on Federal .243 Vital Shok can be found

Given that you're going to have to go face to face to purchase them, you'd better figure in time and fuel costs before driving 200 miles each way to save a couple of quid on a box of ammo :D

All my dealings with Carl Moore have been excellent, and I think you'l find that people are extremely satisfied with the service they get from him.
