    Hey buddy, loving your stuff, listen I don’t have a expensive set up but I learn a lot from people I speak to, right now all I do is use night vision gear for short range stuff but what I do know is that the most important thing for night viewing is the CCD, Phillips SPC 900 webcams are great, and check this out /watch?v=9uT9QFJmmOA some of the security cams are better than the dedicated cams, this is modified but most of these types are low light capable. Have fun.

    Dude, please read the book, that thing is awesome, I bought a Bushnell at a pawn shop thats about the same size but nothing electronic on it . When I found out about something big was coming, I wanted to see it coming. But Im very unhappy with my purchase, maybe I just need a better lense and thats when I found out how much money they cost. But now I can see through you so please, read the book. I could never afford something like that so you have to share. From your new best friend. Ha Ha Ha
