Adirondack optics

Has anyone seen the scopes made by Adirondack Optics? They have a built-in digital camera that senses recoil and goes back to save an image from a few thousandths of a second before recoil...essentially showing you your sight picture when you pulled the trigger.

I have no idea who makes their glass and what the quality is, but I thought this was a neat concept.

Re: Adirondack optics

Have not seen or touched one.

Their business plan indicates they will be ready for H/LRH market by 2007 when the next generation hits the mkt and the current gen price drops.

They may well have a good idea.

What a great way to document those misses. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Adirondack optics

I don't know nothing about this optick with the camera inside, but if you want use this scope for long shooting You must prove it before; the clicks are not 1/4 Moa as they say or 1 cm; the clicks are variables; in my meopta artemis 3000 every click is 0.65 cm at 100 mt...

Re: Adirondack optics

From Meopta's web site, their Artemis 3000 user manual says (my comments in parentheses):

"Turning by one click makes the reticle center move by about 1,5 cm/100 m (1-4x22), (this is .432 MOA per click.)

0,25 inch./100 yrd (1,5-5x20, 3-9x42, 4-12x40, 4-16x44, 3-10x50), (this is exactly .25 MOA per click.)

1cm/100m (7x56, 3-12x56), (this is .36 MOA per click.)"

This is quite a difference between click values across all these scopes. I think they use the same turret mechanics for each scope. With different mangifications and image sizes at the reticule, that would explain why the click values are different.

If your scope has 6.5mm per click at 100m, that's quite a bit different than what they say. 6.94mm is 1/4th MOA at 100m, one MOA equals 2.78cm at 100m.

Regarding the scope with a digicam inside, it would have to take the picture before the bullet's started down the barrel. The barrel points to a different place when the bullet exits the muzzle due to 'jump.' If the picture's taken after the bullet leaves, the reticule won't be where it was when the firing pin struck the primer.
