my pentax/cosmicar c mount 1/2" 16mm f1.4 works great on night eagle 2. I don't remember when and where I got that lens though.

for M12 lens, this lens also works ok. there is still a few thread left when focused. It's 1/3", 16mm and not really f1.6.

Not sure if this will fit your needs but it's definitely brighter than the standard M12 16mm lens

It's c mount , but you can make an adaptor to a board camera , check thingiverse for the one I posted there.

Interesting.. a two part pcb.

Then my M12 mount won't fit.

But the night wolf mount might fit the case.

If not I can model up a mount, I'll just need precise dimensions.

i've looked and gave up...think its a take it apart and get it there....

i'm pritty sure you could tap a 12mm thread directly into the plastik for the lens..

If it does not fit, would the NE2 board fit into an e700 housing? Is there a member who could try that?
In that way we could keep on using floplast based housings for Night Eagle 2 builds.
I know nothing about floplast housing. But I know NE2 board won't fit into an e700 housing. Night Eagle 2 board is smaller at about 26.9mm mounting hole center to center. E700 is about 32.5mm mounting hole center to center.

As for add-on mounting styles, I like Rolaids method with some small differences. It's very modular and use all the standard parts.
