    Hi Bob personally I think you would be better off with a t20 LED IR torch of eblag , it'll be 100 x better than the ir filter on an LF

    Just to save you wasting your money I didn't think the ir filter on a LF was any good personally and you had light spill from the sides


    obviously it's your choice but I hope this helps

    Hi mark

    I have the following in hand for the scope

    Dumpy t67 ir

    Dumpy t50 ir

    But what I am after is some thing that I can use with no need for the lamp on the drone or on the spotter, (armasight 6mag spotter) armasight drone pro10x,

    I have been speaking to one lad on the nv forum who uses the lf170 and ir filter, with a small shroud to stop white/ ir spill and seems he gets on with it well,

    But I'm a fair bit off getting out there as I may be back in hospital Monday with this darn knee replacement that's giving me problems,

    So I thought it could be worth a try ?

    What you think


    Bob

    Hi
    Spoke to you on night vision forum about this... I use a deben filter and it's good enough for spotter and to shoot along way out with drone
    Sure it was 30 better getting a new one with no scratches than a 2nd hand one

    Hi jon

    Its you, aha, I had a shop around the shops and they are asking silly money, and one of the lads got a light force one on the bay and it did not fit or stay on right,

    I think we will ave to bite the bullet and go for it,

    Hope alls well,
