spotting scope i just wanted to share with everyone

i have about 11 security cameras set up at my home, shop, garage, and outside. and i can view them thru the internet either from a computer or phone



well this is what i did. i went to visit my parents in Upper Peninsula Mi a bout 2 months ago. there retired and have been up there all summer. I was on my phone looking at my house and my dad was wondering what I was doing. I told him looking at my sump pump, i have had flooding issues in the past. he was amazed.

A few hours later he asked me if i could build a system for him. He didnt want a normal system he wanted a system that was portable, wireless, and there was no power. i had to ask why and what for.

he explained to me that he has gotten into shooting at the range and he shoots at 600 yard targets. even with a very good spotting scope you cant see where you hit at 600 yards. if you zoom in too much you magnify the heat waves if you zoom out you cant see the holes.

so i took the next 3 weeks to come up with a design. its fairly simple and not expensive. after 3 weeks of testing and tweeking i did it and i tested a ip camera at 1000 yards. with no power source avalable and no eithernet cables all wireless.

last weekend we took it up there and tried it in the real world. and it worked great!!!

here is screen shots of a camera 600 yards away from the shooter and 4 feet away from the target.

Fill us in on what and how you did this.

I need one to set up by my house to watch deer on the far end of my shelterbelt.

Any Insight for me?


Thanks!

Hey dude, I'm all over that!!!

I'm figgerin' w/a couple of beef stew antenna it'll be good for well beyond 600.

I'm willing to support those on this forum who are innovators of great ideas.

It's either purchase one from you or do it myself, which ever is less expensive. At this point in the ol' life, there is more money than time.

I'll be getting serious next spring.

Think about it, ok?

Also, except for the lower shot the shooting is exceptional. I'm thinking cheek weld on that one.

Re: spotting scope i just wanted to share with everyone

We were just discussing the feasibility of this type of system on Thursday when shooting at 300 and 400 yards. I'd be interested in this type of system if you either set it up and sell or even give us a component list so we can do it ourselves.

If you don't mind, please put together a parts list with the exact components you used. More pics of the actual setup would be nice to.

Thanks
