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.

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

    realy you could do with lower lux and you would have to strip the camera out of that as you would not want all those bulbs around it

    i have used this on my first nv test

    yes it did work but needed loads of IR and scared off more rabbits than i hit if you only shoot at eyeshine then ok for a close range stuff

    i then used a watec 902b cheap off fleabay works very well on low ir (torch from terry1001) in air rifle range and a lot further on zoomed in IR

    the difference between the are shooting at eyeshine or seeing what you are shooting at (i cant afford to shoot at eyeshine there are dogs and cats on my perms)

    so my advice is get the best you can afford now and save money in the long run

    Don't try and cut back too much on the camera, it's important to get one with reasonable performance as it's the most difficult part of the system to change later. To keep costs down you can buy from China but will have to wait 3-4 weeks for delivery.
    If you want a bullet camera you could try this one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261153719039?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 or a board camera http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/221298930451?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649
    You'll need an ir lens of 16mm or maybe 20/25mm depending on what you can get. Have a look through the build threads to see the thoughts on lens choice.

    If you are on a real budget I have a camera and lens you can have if you donate £2 to the wellies charity to cover postage.
    It's the camera from kens original nv thread never been built up. Purchased as a spare.[​IMG]
    I have some footage from them somewhere I will put up when I get home if you are interested.
    Cheers Andy

    Don't forget for safety reasons it's always best to be able to see further than you are shooting. Get a decent camera as suggested and you will probably be able to scrounge other bits as a lot of people have bits laying around.
    I'm using a watec 902h and it's better than the nitesite.There are cheaper watecs about:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_t...watec+902b&_nkw=watec+902b&_sacat=0&_from=R40

    I have a spare 25mm and 16mm lense (cctv not board lenses) for you and a C-CS mount if you end up needing one of them. I use the 16mm.

    Also, you can come out with us one night if you want to check out how they work.

    I got this one to play with http://www.aliexpress.com/item/1-3-...TVL-0-0003Lux-D-WDR-OSD-2D-DNR/597493119.html (thanks to poppy on the nvf ;)) it took 12 days to get here and is very good for the money,better it by buying the kpc e700 at around £60 ish.
    Both cameras have on screen display accessed via a button on the back of the cam case rather than on the camera lead,makes building into a project box a lot easier.

    Hi, have done the same with a car reverse kit (camera/monitor) Get rid of the LED's and use external IR torch, change lens to 16mm day/night vision and hey presto!
    You can get lens from this link (111084147506) the only down side of this method is it is a reversed view camera but works fine.
    You will also need a few leads and a compact DC12v power supply, they are easily available on ebay.
    can give more details if you need them.
    Good luck and hope this helped.
    Steve.
    PS new to this site so be patient if you don't get replies straight away.
