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.

    Thank you.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    '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.

    Unfortunately the clouds broke to reveal a near 3/4 moon,I wanted to see how the little ir torch would perform in total darkness,suffice to say the camera was picking out trees and clumps of grass etc well past 100yds with just the moonlight.....I should mention at this point it was'nt attached to the scope (see pics)
    When I turned the ir torch on things got alot brighter,in total darkness (no moon) I have no doubt this little torch that cost £15 and a lens that was less than £2 would pick out rabbits to 60 yds no problem at all.
    I have a cheapie 25mm 1/2 format cs mount lens coming so i'll see how that works on the scope,but tonight was just the cam/screen/torch and battery lumped together.....great for watching wildlife in the dark,just have to be careful to avoid those dogging sites,that's one pussy cat I don't want to see :eek: :D

    Ha, am I right to assume you have not sanded and blacked out the reflector?

    You can get one from the DX site - it should transform the range and possibly stop the camera from reducing it's potential due to local flare, If you can't wait, paint yours and keep the one on the way as a spare. Having said that I don't know what rifle you use it on. If sub 12 ftlb the blackout lens may well be too much light on the quarry or for the camera at close range. There's only one way to find out.

    Thanks for the lens link. Went out last night and found my ir bulb to be woefully inadequate on its own. 10 yards max? I also find with normal led bulb the red filter is poor, hopefully with the beam focussed both ir and red will be improved, have heard good result had with the red filter and the lens. You seem to think it good with the ir.

    You can anticipate IR light from an IR LED, Red light from a red LED, green light from a green LED yada yada.
    The white has almost zero any other colour in it's light spectrum, I say almost because what we see as white light is apparently made up of several colours.

    A red filter over a white LED might give you a vague pink tint for about 10 yards or so. :)
