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.

    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.'

  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.

    Some of you chaps will have already seen this on the night vision forum but I wanted to post it on the AGF as well, as this is where I had some of my first inspiration for NV projects. Hopefully it will inspire a few here to build something even better :up:

    Here is my self contained spotter, using an effio-e camera, T20 torch, 6-60mm CS lens, 5" `HD screen and an internal 1800mah battery (Would have used bigger but this was to hand). Turns on by switch near thumb. AV out, charging switch, socket and LED next to the screen. Good results using a 9-22mm lens but I think the CS lens adapter I'm using is stopping the 6-60mm from focusing properly, I'll order a CS board mount and get some footage up with the DVR [​IMG]

    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    Here are the `guts` of the beast. Nothing complicated and certainly nothing pretty (Note the hacked T20 tube and spaghetti wiring) I'm begrudged to tidy this one up, but will find a neater solution if/when I make another. An E700 would be an obvious improvement to make for anyone less tight fisted than I. The battery is a black box version stripped down and used for parts (including switch and charging LED indicator)

    P.s look at all that space!! If I could find a smaller screen with a comparable resolution I would build a much more compact version..... Screen suggestions welcome..

    Just a small question.
    What voltage is this setup running??
    12v, and if so how did you get the T20 to work with it.

    Hi mate, Yes it all runs on a lithium 12V batt, fitted in the project box. I used one of these drivers http://www.kaidomain.com/Product/Details.S002982 to run it on 12V.

    If you don't fancy soldering it all up, I can make you a drop in pill with cable attached for a reasonable price :up: http://www.airgunforum.co.uk/forums/showthread.php/172611-3-mode-T20-torches-850nm-IR-Red-Green

    Do you get any interference from that driver? Does it cause any lines on the monitor screen?

    Thanks for the link to the led driver.
    I have modded some good multimode flashlights into even better single mode ones, I just did not know that they are 12v boards as well.
    I always use them in flashlights that use 1 18650 cell (3.7v input).

    Looking up the pile of drivers I have around one seems to be the 4-12v variety.
    So now I have the T20 (see your PM), a box , a screen and a battery pack.
    Just waiting on a board camera and lens now.
