When there's moisture in the air I struggle to get a clear view of distant targets (rabbits & foxes). The closer the lamp is to the sightline of the scope, the worse it gets.
No great surprise here frankly; the longer the path of illuminated air you're looking through the worse it'll be. I'm seeking opinion on how to best overcome this with pros & cons.
I'm leaning towards using the tightest possible aspheric LED torch, mounted on the roof on the other side of the 4x4, so the pencil-like beam & the sightline first converge at a point as far away as possible. I expect this to be at the expense of me not seeing fox eye reflections in some instances though. It also means a second lamp is needed for scanning.
Keen to get an understanding of how others overcome/mitigate this.
