Very good video Fred. Thanks for posting. One thing I notice in this video and all the others that I have seen is that they glue the adapter ring to the camera in such a way as to defeat the operation of the front ring on the camera. When I glued mine on, I was careful to only put glue (a good 1 hour epoxy) on the part of the ring and adapter so when mated together, the adapter is glued ONLY to the ring itself thus the ring functions still work AND it makes aligning the crosshairs in the scope much easier than having to loosen/tighten screws. You just simply rotate the camera itself slightly. The way I got mine to fit, I can actually leave the tube for the 4-14 FFP Primary arms on the scope and just screw the adapter ring that is glued onto the camera right onto the tube by rotating just the ring threading it onto the adapter. When I switch to my Hawke, I unscrew the camera off the tube mounted to the 4-14 FFP scope and screw it to the threaded adapter that comes with the kit for the Hawke scope. That way, I can keep both mounts set up and make the switch with the camera literally in seconds.
