Re: Warden Digiceptor Rifle Scope

Nice video Clive,
Is that square box above the reticle the aiming point for the rangefinder?

Cheers

Re: High end camera

Bruce, Thanks for the reply. The astro cameras I'm looking at are monochrome and full spectrum so no filters at all full frame sensor so much bigger then most of the typical cameras used. CCD or CMOS. I'm confident they are super light sensitive but I think they are not used often because like you ...

Re: High end camera

I'm not aware of any home build or commercial NV kit that uses those computer based astro cameras -there's not enough space for the computer on a rifle!! The other thing is that many of those astro cameras use very long exposure times to get good images. A decent image from an NV camera really needs...

Re: Wanted Dronepro day filter

That is a daytime colour filter. It blocks UV and IR so that the camera only responds to visible light and thus give better colour representation.
Without the filter, you'll still get a colour image but the colours will look somewhat washed out.

Re: Wanted Dronepro day filter

One of these and a bit of glue should do the trick https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UV-IR-Cut-Fi ... XQEgpTCPXT

Re: High end camera

I had one of the original X Sights and it was truly crap, but I looked through the new 4K model at a show early this year and it looked much better. The 4k models are not on sale here yet, so please give us your thoughts on it.

Cheers

Re: Newcomer to the forum with Photon questions

There's not much you can do with the on board IR. I'd say the external IR you are using is fine for up to around 200 yards. Other than the better battery pack and the wifi, the main difference between the XT and the RT is the sensor being used. The XT uses a 1/3 sensor, while the RT uses a 1/2 senso...

Re: Newcomer to the forum with Photon questions

All the Photons sold in the UK, both XT and RT are the "S" model and use LED illuminators, not lasers
It's an 810nm LED in the XT and an 850nm in the RT
The "L" model of the XT used a laser, but AFAIK this was never available in the UK through "official channels"
