More sophisticated setups include a pan-and-tilt gimbaled camera controlled by a gyroscope sensor in the pilot's goggles and with dual onboard cameras, enabling a true stereoscopic view. The Kodak wratten gelatin filters are made in flimsy flexible sheets that are easy to scratch so they must be kept stored when not in use. Thanks again for joining this thread. A whole new concept in spy cameras, this is one worth having! I think at the moment I have the scope mounted about as close a tolerance as I can and still have good function of the bolt, scope housing and eye relief. We all appreciate any input you might offer as well as being able to offer suggestions of improvement to the company.
I could perhaps have the bolt modified, but then that's extra time and expense. As you can see, there was just barely enough clearance. Bennybone, This is one other thing Sightmark might want to consider. I have three 3 23a filters left. The main issue for my particular rifle setup is the forward scope housing will bump against the forward end of the picatinny rail before a good eye relief can be achieved. The 56 filter right will be centered on the 535nm band with very small response for the 607nm band.
Ditto on the owner's manual. On the outside, this is just a button on your clothing — you can use it wherever you want, just as you would a normal button. Mounted on the rifle, the bellows did cause a bit of discomfort with my prescription glasses, but with the bellows removed all is good. In addition, the Watec 120N chip spectral response appears to be different than the 902H chip. Know it's azimuth at any time with tables or a planetarium program. From the diagram, the known quantities are distances to the Sun and Moon, and width of the umbra or anti-umbra for this annular eclipse on the ground.
My reviews are just one guy's perspective, mine, and I hope to see a lot of discussion from others about their experiences. As an example see this video below of the January 15, 2010 annular eclipse left and a screen shot right. Do you have plans to use that picatinny rail for something else and perhaps switch back an forth? To do this, we will all use the identical solar filter see below. Kevin David, Does the eye relief work for you at the current setting? The kit includes a multitude of options for hiding the camera lens, pinhole, Philips head screw and button lens covers. If not, I would dump the whole rail and get some low profile mounting blocks under those rings.
Page 6 - 5th bullet point states that you turn on the device by rotating the controller clockwise until it clicks. So we need to standardize our telescope and recording systems and record at the same wavelength range, and that wavelength needs to cover near to the Picard satellite's 535nm and 607nm bands. As the eclipse approaches annularity at your site, you'll have to make adjustments to your gain settings to get the best contrast. I was able to get by with the short picatinny rail that is on my Bushmaster upper. They can be cut into 1. One other thing I did today was put a small filter over the inside of the lens cap to see if it would cut down on the amount daytime light. I found a more comprehensive manual online and was able to navigate to the option menu change the cameras language to English.
The eye relief is not an issue at all, and I did not have to go to high mounts on either of my rifles. It is our favorite choice because is so light and convenient and attaches to our flight goggle. Everyone here is looking for reviews of the scope, in-field performance and to fairly assess its capabilities and limitations. It's loaned to one of my kids right now. The pinhole camera lens is sited under the button and is invisible to the naked eye — however, nothing is hidden from this camera and it will capture all the action you want! Your thoughts and suggestions are most welcome here.
Many of us have several solar filters I have 4 but keep in mind that we must observe with the same wavelength transmission to be able to get credible results worth publishing. The less jumping around of the beads, the easier it is for LiMovie and Tangra to analyze them. A whole new concept in spy cameras, this is one worth having! If at all possible try to use a dew shield to block stray light from coming in. No need to start a new thread unless you wish. See the seller's listing for full details.
I like it much better without the bellows at the moment anyway. . I think the pictures will help when I can get them done. I had to go to a full length rail because of it, and the original rings I had Burris signature Zee highs caused the front housing to hit the front of the pic rail. I had to order some extra highs to clear it.
