Diffrent scopes - different views through add on rigs

Post by some bloke » 30 Nov 2017, 21:12

Huh- every day's a learning day.

I can't say I've noticed this before but I just happened to be doing a bit of ratting with two very old scopes that both have smaller ocular lenses than more modern one's. The WTC has a 35mm ocular while the Tasco's is only 31mm. I'm assuming that's why the camera see's them differently.

The venue has some overnight lighting but help is needed in the shadows.

Video has been replaced with an edited one because youtube would not allow a copyrighted soundtrack that was barely heard on the car radio in the background of the original clip.

Dave,
Can't see the video - YouTube says it's blocked in the UK on Copyright grounds????

Cheers

Thanks Bruce - I've just clicked the link and it still works for me. Is anyone else having issues with it?

If so could some of you copy paste this to youtube's search bar: A Few Rats

huh - I just checked my emails and it seems there is a few seconds of a copyrighted song on the car radio at low volume.

Lol, there's thousands of them there, the pile emmits a noise with their constant rummaging. We only take a quick video of a few now and again so we don't lose so many opportunities of a shot.

150 pellets were used last visit - with just few misses.

Came across a video taken at that venue a few months ago:

Christ that makes my skin crawl. Takes me back to my late 90's Pig Farm ratting when we first started getting in to multi shot PCP's and those terribly overpriced Gen 1 scopes. We used to hand pump that S410 up more than once a night. Never did seem to make a dent in the population. They bred as fast as we could shoot them.
