Well another setback turns out the LEDs I had fried somehow after I installed them in the scope but I did manage to make a IR laser attachment that seems to be working fine at the moment but I'm adding a small resistor to keep it from frying and I've attached the main body to the lens and camera mount ill have pictures in the morning as tonight my dad almost burned the house down cause he fell asleep boiling peanuts

Edit: while the laser could work as a laser sight this thing isn't calibrated for a rifle or airsoft uses it is mainly for cosplay purposes. However I do plan to make one for a rifle that can be used for hunting or airsoft, that being said this is mainly a prototype and needs more years of development for that.

Ok i know i promised photos but ive been visited by Gordan Freeman and hes asked me to freshen up his crowbar so i gotta do that first...JK

Ok yes i know the photos are missing but i have been working to the bone with fiberglass and bondoglass for the past week and its just now starting to get perfect so bear with me and i promise itll look amazing when im done

However ive been wondering which color scheme is better?

Should i go black on grey, or olive drab on black? Or should it be a surprise? Let me know

Ok it is finished with the paint job now all i need to do is put the raspberry pi 3b+ on it as well as taking the tape off the switches and buttons but that is when the enamel clear coat has hardened up im also working on a instruction booklet for operating this version of the scope

The weird part is you can barely notice the difference of the blacks in real life but the camera somehow has trouble with the decals
