Well I finally got the last piece of silicon hose that I needed to mount the camera on my scope, so it's up and running now.

The eye relief still needs a little bit of tweeking but the overall setup is about 95% how I want it.

Here's some piccies for the image-hungry amongst you (nice and big so snoopy can see 'em too):

Enjoy. 8-)

Looks very nice and portable - I see you can anticipate what it's going to look like next month. :P

Thanks chaps.

The display is an Angel Eye KS-650M inside a PVC enclosure and viewed through two 42mm lens extension tubes connected together with a 37mm-42mm step up adaptor and a 37mm 4x magnification lens on the viewing end.

The scope is a Leapers SWAT 3-12x44mm 1/2 mil dot 30mm side focus number, not a nikko but a similar spec and price, I believe.

Very nice job indeed.
Your bipod legs are mm away from taking a leap of fait of the table.

Thanks again for the compliments everyone, it's a lowest possible cost solution but it works for me.

And no table leaping was undertaken, the gun didn't move and is now safely back in its usual resting place. 8-)

Excellent job mate, can you add links and a bit more info regarding the screen viewer

Please. My eyes are getting really bad and I need to wear classes when I go

shooting now, but I could use something like this instead.

Thanks for sharing.

Atb, mike
