New homebuilt mono again

Postby marc_pril » Wed Sep 28, 2011 12:19 am

I've been at it again. Built another housing for an acquaintance.

Nice and compact. Due to the bit old fashioned optics it's on the hefty side with 500grams (using the 25mm schneider Kreuznach xenon F0.95 lens). In the end the cyclop 85mm F1.2mm lens will be mounted. Whole unit is o-ring sealed and should be watertight once the batterycap is screwed on!

Figured out a nice source of spring contacts. Cheap smoke detectors use them to connect to their speekers! They are tinned springsteel.

Cheers,

Marc

Very nice work again ... that is normal from what I have seen. It looks nice and small against the 85mm lense.

Thanks for the tip on spring contacts will have a look at them here.

cheers

Nice job Marc. Looks good !
I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn’t know how to use it.

Another source of good parts is solar garden lights. You can usually find them at walmart or other DIY stores for around $3 and they come with a variety of good parts. They use battery contact springs inside to hold a rechargeable nimh AA. Just thought i'd throw that out there.

Hi Marc,
that ones a different look.... is it a PVS7 type objective with a MS4GT ocular.
Still looks good, damn I need a heap more time in front of my lathe rather than driving all over Cape York for work.

cheers

Yeah,

Indeed MS4GT ocular with PVS7 objective bell. I use everything I can get my hands on :lol: !

One advantage is one can make all kind off attachments for the thing. This one however is for a friend.

Cheer,

Marc
