Both are 16 mm lenses , not fussed on the 12mm ones , the mount for the c/cs one was a c/cs board mount , not the screw in type , had to cut off the front of the camera housing ,file a square into the opening to fit the c/cs board mount , the just lightly file the back of the mount so it fits the camera housing snuggly , bonded in with a bit of arraldite , moot point remove the actual camera first :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Image This is the unit , used a somebloke box , best out there ! , 5 inch screen , 75mm lensed illuminator mounted on a fully adjustable quick release mount , takes seconds to fit the unit . internally , pretty standard and simple , swopped the 1.5 driver to a 2.1A luxdrive buck one , fitted a dimmer , was not a big fan of dimmers , but this works well , from zero ( which is handy just on dark ) to full , the olson sits on an inch of aluminium so well heatsinked , just as good if not better than the Ward 800 i have , just a different style of unit , best thing about is price ! Sub 200 pounds for a unit that will actually let you shoot a fox at 300 yds with a good sight and image , or take ratting at 20 yards ! Easy enough to build and easy to fix if it goes tits up , whats not to like :D
Great to see someone using my dimmer circuit. It's way better than filters.
