The problem with M42 lens is that they are for bigger format sensor (35mm) and they are heavy. You don't really gain much by paring a 1/3" format sensor like KPC.
Also, you'll need female M42 to male C/CS mount adapter like this:

or you can go less expensive by using this:

and plus a correct length c-mount extension.

Here is what I picked up https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00AU ... UTF8&psc=1

I also ordered a Nikon F mount adapter since I have a Nikon DSLR camera already. If I plop some cash for a lens I would make it double use! The M42 can adapt to my Nikon camera.

That should work, I forgot about that one. Now how do you plan to mount it on your rifle?

No not yet :lolno:

When the Foxeer comes in I will have to see how rigid I can get the camera to mount. Im not too confident that the EJ230 would be as rigid as I would like. The sensor is only soldered on one side, I may still end up getting one and modifying it.

Alright, I ordered an EJ230. That makes 5 cameras that i will own. It will be nice to compare them all to this (EJ230) standard.

Hello Joe,

Just noticed that you are thinking of using an IR laser for targeting, i have tried this with mixed results, the laser widens and can white out a sensitive camera, aiming at say a rabbit makes it disappear behind the glare, or run off. Some targets have the same effect !

large targets are not to bad though, so you may be ok ?

Thanks for the info, I have noticed that with some YouTube videos. Maybe the legal (in the US) lower wattage ones might preform better, do you recall the wattage or model of the one you tried? The problem is finding one with some real adjustments thats not one of those stupid brick looking weapon sights.

Anyways I got the BSP6300 in. I has a motorized IR filter that switched manually or auto. There is also plenty of room in the housing for battery's and a wireless transmitter, it might make a better spotter than scope. I will compare everything when it comes in.

Mostly coyotes, have a few that keep getting the chickens..... It will be on a .223 AR15, no more than a 100 yard shots but I might try farther for fun. I like precision rifles :thumbup:

I think no one wants to answer that as a light 410 can have high recoil but a heavy one will dampen it.

I tried one on my shotgun a year ago to test recoil, it lasted over 100 shots :lolno:

Best thing you can do is pot it, then that problem wont happen......a special potting compound poured over the circuit works wonders, dont get
it near the sensor ( cover the sensor) pot every part of the circuit , even the wires coming out, it's not just the vibration that destroys circuits
it's also the forward and backward jolt !

Hope that helps :thumbup:

Have you potted a whole EJ230? I was thinking about this today.....
