1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Did YOU screw in the 12mm lens? Or is it perhaps still hidden in the box and You are using the standard 3.6 lens...

    A 12mm lens will give a small circular image of the scope with a a wide black border. A 16mm lens will just about fill the screen top to bottom with a small black strip on the sides. If you use a 25mm lens you will get the scope i mage cropped all round which gives you a slightly magnified view.

    That is not a 12mm lens on there! It's very wide angle, maybe even less than 3mm. You can buy replacement lenses easily and cheaply, if you want one failry quickly then try this http://www.stockoptics.com/board-lenses/board-lens-day-night-350-890nm.html , they have 16mm and 25mm available or you can get a cheap one from China via ebay but it will take -4 weeks to arrive.

    Yeah... Terry is right Pete, that appears to be the image from a narrow field of vision lens, definitely around the 3 - 4mm range. I prefer the 16mm personally as the image fills the screen adequately on my setup but others advocate the 25mm lens as it adds a bit more magnification and may let a little more light in.

    For the cost of them I would buy both and choose your preference.

    Ps. Try moving the camera closer to the scope and see if it improves.

    When you are setting up the camera focus from experience I have found that focussing the lens onto an object about 6 - 8 feet away and then adjusting the eye relief ( distance from camera to scope ) to approx 35 - 40mm is a good starting point, it should allow a fairly central point of adjustment for the crosshair focus.

    The EJ's I've seen usually come with the 3mm lens as they are meant for CCTV purposes. I took Rolaids advice of 16mm which gives the view you want. Sure 24 sell these lenses as well as the camera's. Plus they are UK based
