    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.

    The ir cluster should give you 10meters bud. If you were to mount the lcd where it is now you could fit a lcd view finder.
    I see you fixed the focusing problem.

    hi ken,

    i was toying with the idea of sticking the lcd onto another aerosol cap which will slot over the camera housing protecting the camera and having a handy mount for the lcd, as it would be where the eyebell would be.

    yep got there in the end on the focussing, i was using my old smk scope for testing and when i switched to the ags what a difference by turning the zoom dial it allows me to focus at different distasnces so overall im happy

    cheers bud simon

    btw no ones answered me question yet, 'will epoxy damage the pcb?'

    No it will be fine mate. I use to cover PCB's all the time with epoxy resin to protect the components.

    hi ken, buddy ,im now back at work so time is limited but what i did end up doing was rolling up all the wiring and plugs and placed those inside an old precision screwdriver box, this was then taped to my battery pack, it looks quite neat now.

    i really need to re mount the lcd though as where it joins the cap the fixing (epoxy) keeps breaking each time its knocked, ive one or two ideas on that though so when complete i'll put a piccy up.

    take care ken

    simon
