I have not detected name-calling here. Like Dwight, It strains my patience to be introduced to a potentially interesting project, only to encounter prolonged silence thereafter. A word or two from the OP would be appreciated, from time to time. Or if a cessation has ensued, then let us know so that the thread can die.

Sorry, I thought the TOS section he was quoting was about name calling, my bad...

I do not think it is quelling communications when you ask members not to name call. I think it is fairly easy to get a point across without name calling.

When will the TOS Thumpers realize that they are more annoying than ALL the trolls and name callers combined.

You point out the name calling. I'll point out where this sort of behavior belongs.

Here are prototypes #2 and #3 of the camera.
#2 has manual gain control and a frame freeze button on the digital remote . Also a rs485 connection on the remote for computer control .
#3 is longer exposure and Peltier cooled. More info to come about both cams and their remotes when I receive the PCB's .

note the camera is really small , only 2.5" long. In comparison the reducer , which is only 3" long, seems gigantic

very nice Matt!!! Don't let the Malliboys ( ) ruin your resolve or progress! I know these kind of projects take time. You have no one to impress but yourself at this stage of development.

Looks very cool! And so much different from the prototype ... shear wizardry in motion. Very impressive!
