CED Millenium 2 Chronograph Advice Needed

I've had my CED Millennium 2 out twice. It works very well, if it is set up perfectly. It is a real pain to align perfectly and it seems I have to shoot very low (scary low) over the sensors to prevent error readings. Does anyone have advice? Do you have this same problem?
Thanks

Sorry, I should have mentioned I'm using the inferred sky screens.

Well scratch that comment then... I can shoot right through the middle, and get a reading every time. The green light on the IR should be on if the screens are getting power, but their really hard see see unless it's low light. Hook up and take in a dark room, and see if their on.

Re: CED Millenium 2 Chronograph Advice Needed

Both green lights are always on and I'm using the battery pack. The chronograph is always in the shade at the range where I shoot due to covered shooting benches. I'm also still shooting with snow and ice on the ground. I wonder if this could be the problem? I may give CED a call next week.

Re: CED Millenium 2 Chronograph Advice Needed

Snow on the ground under the unit can be problematic. The light reflects off the snow and hits the under side of the bullet, which the sensors then see. It masks the shadow (loss of light) normally created by the bullet passing over the sensors. I sometimes set pieces of cardboard on the snow under the sensors to reduce snow glare. I don't know if your unit is under the roof also, or outside the shooting roof. Best to be kept out from under roof so the noise waves aren't so intense on the sensors.

There are some more tips from CED at this link:
