Thread: DIY NV Scope for under 100

  1. #1

    DIY NV Scope for under 100

    I've tried a few DIY options but all a bit cluttered with wires/battery packs/camera/monitors....
    But the latest ive tried is the best by far, and it's recordable too.

    2.5" Angel Eye DVR* and a Nite-Tek T20 940Nm IR Torch.
    * I needed to replace the lens in the camera with a 12mm lens.

    DVR unit mounted on the side of the scope, camera on the back and torch on the top. Only the one wire runing from camera to DVR.
    In the film attached the recording isn't as clear as the image on the screen, the furthest out rabbit shot was 50 yrds, and the furthest out viewed was 100yds, but could only detect eye shine beyond 60-70 Yds.

    I think you'll find we're lining up to see these pictures.
    My question is how do you manage to accurately line up the camera to the rear of the scope ?
    Looks good though

    Angel Eye Camera comes with small lens, simply screws out and replaced with a 12mm lens, easily located on e-bay, then mounted inside waste pipe.

    Sliced pipe fitted inside to reduce internal diameter to match lens.
    Pipe was just too tight to fit over scope, pipe slotted to allow expansion and at the same time gives a snug fit to scope.

    Slide pipe over scope, position on scope to give best image.



    Fit DVR cradle to front of scope.

    I took the opportunity to check some areas with the NV to see if the rabbit control measures are being effective - no where near as many as there were!!


    Ignore the date on the video, i just forgot to reset it !!
