    Took my build for a walk. Conditions are: Half moon, clear sky, urban area, too much light pollution. Photos taken with my Galaxy S4. Photos are raw and unedited and are a poor representation of what my eyes see.

    The PVS 4 housing came with a bracket attached that seem to mate up with an ACOG flat top mount. After getting the required screw and boring the hole in the mount out a lil, it worked perfect.



    Pic taken in my garage with the door shut, some light leaking in during daytime. Could not see the items across the room on the shelves with my eyes.



    Pic taken out in a park in above mentioned conditions



    Ditto conditions, same park looking down towards houses about 100m away



    Resolution looks a lot sharper with the naked eye. The gain is set as low as possible as photos just flare out.

    What laser are you using? Is it red or IR? I've been trying to source a decent IR laser with W & E adjustment, on and off for around three years.

    What's its beam divergence at 100m? (roughly).

    I spent $500 having some samples made up, and they were shit (wrong wavelength / 40% failure rate). Put me off for a while.

    Feel free to take and send me pics of the laser

    Or if you can't be arsed, that's cool, it's New Years Eve after all!

    Honestly though, a 5 mw red laser, with a single layer of floppy disk film over the lens will give you a sharp, long range aiming point that won't burn your tube or flare at close range.
