    Now I've made on NV set up I'm thinking about improving it maybe starting with a better board camera than the 1/3" cmos I have.

    This one seemed good http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/230709525155?ssPageName=STRK:MESINDXX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1436.l2649 0.1 lux and 480 TV lines resolution but I just wanted to check with those that know that it is the best to be getting without going over the top. Is more resolution always better etc and is this a god camera for our purposes. I've already bought one that is apparently not absolutely ideal.

    Your best cam is always going to be a ccd 1/2" , so watec is the one. Then you need a 1/2" cs lens 12mm.

    Next is the 1/3" ccd this uses a board lens.
    Now the ccd cameras are better than cmos cameras. This is because the image chip in a ccd is better than a cmos because the ccd is more sensitive to infrared light. And the chip is bigger, so the bigger the image chip the more sensitive the camera is to infrared light.
