Re: MinoxZX5I 3-5X56 to use with addon nv .

You would need the SF model to get the side focus adjustment need to get the best out of an add-on Unfortunately non of the Minox documents I've looked at say what the minimum focus distance is - and it needs to be around 10 yards to get a sharp image at high magnifications and ranges less than 100 ...

Re: Newbie advice please

There are no NV scopes or add-ons that will give as good an image as a decent day scope - and the S&B 8x56 is a very good day scope. Unfortunately, it does not lend itself well to being used for any type of NV work Forget front add-ons, they all have too many compromises to make them any practical u...

Re: UV vision - a bit off topic

Many cameras have inbuilt filters which block IR and UV light so that only visible light gets to the sensor and allows the camera to more accurately reproduce visible colours.

Re: Blackwood outdoors

The owner of the company (Ian) is a member of this forum (mini magnum) so i'm sure he'll be along shortly to ally any fears you have.

Re: 1080p pard

Guys - cool it What I said in my original response is true - lasers CAN be dangerous to humans and animals. However, I doubt very much that your horses vision is at risk from someone using a laser illuminator. The laser would need to be focussed to a tight pencil size beam and aimed directly at one ...

Re: 1080p pard

The short answer is YES - lasers do have the potential to damage human and animal eyes. However, as with all things in life, it is necessary to assess the risk associated with using lasers and decide what, if any precautions need to be taken, and if the benefits of using a laser outweigh the risks a...

Re: Noobie just landed.

Welcome to the forum and as blue eyes says we were all at the stage you are now. The difference is that when we started out on our "NV journey" we pretty much had to make all our own kit because there was nothing commercially available that was any good and at a price that could be afforded by most ...
