300 yard rabbits are very small on the monitor but can be seen if you have good eyesight.

Foxes are of course larger on the screen and easier to spot, and eye shine at circa 500 yards

Elevate the height on your sun roof or to view over grass etc with this very sturdy tripod handle screwed into the base of the pistol grip for an added £25.

I'm offering a different lens type for my integrated torch spotters. I think the new type are the same as those used in the Pitch Black rig that was around a year or more ago. I will be using 50mm and 35mm focal lengths.

Although the 1/3" format lens are quoted at F1.2, I'm not 100% convinced they let in more light during my low light comparisons than the 2/3" format F1.4 C mount lenses that are commonly used for spotters but they have subtle advantages for truck spotter use:

Their fine M12x0.5 fixing thread allows much better focus precision than the coarser adjustments of other lenses - this makes the spotter much more point and shoot friendly over a much wider depth of focus - and handling won't accidentally nudge them out of focus.

They're slightly slimmer - leaving more space for a larger torch head on a small box.

And they don't need as much of the E700 camera neck removing.

I don't want to say where they are coming from just yet and they won't be much use to anyone on their own because they are too likely to get knocked out of position during handling in the dark for example as seen here:

I have made a 4 screw supporting lens shroud to prevent knocks or handling/storage pressure from pushing them off aim.

Hi Cornish, the Black Sun pill option is £243 with RMSD P&P.

The pistol grip or the suction mount are the same price - unless you want them both - if so please add £7.

I currently have them ready to go with the switches and new lens to the right or left, please specify left or right when you order at the bottom of this thread. Handles/suction mounts are removed to fit in smaller boxes and re-fitted by the buyer - pliers or 11mm spanner needed to fit the nut. The tripod handle in this image is not included:
