    Trying some shots with the Tactacam. I don’t really know how to edit the video yet. Only 57 yards so not the best. 2nd shot was low as I wanted to see where it would hit with no holdover

    need to dial in your setup just a bit to get rid of the black shadow on the left upper corner. that should be just a matter of lifting you mount up just a touch in that direction. you should be able to get a nice clear, defined circle. then you'll be all set.

    it could be also that you have too much zoom dialed in on the scope, but I think its more of my first thought.

    I agree. This scope has a raised area around the end of the ocular and I don’t know if that is causing the issue. I haven’t played with it a lot but get this when I go to 32 power on the scope. I’ve been editing it out by zooming a bit on the raw video. My first attempt of cutting the video down to small segments so I didn’t zoom anything. 
    Thanks for the tip. I will work with it and also see if it does any better with another scope.

    Do you use the app to see what your camera is seeing? Keep the screws on the FTS a bit loose & move it & the camera around until BOTH are centered, then tighten it all up. The problems you're having should be easily fixable. What kind of scope are you using? What kind of device & app/program for editing?

    I use the phone to see but there always seems to be a little shadow on the left side. Scope is a Hawke 8-32 Sidewinder. Just editing on the movie app that came on the phone. Don’t think I’ll ever be a pro.

    Try pulling the FTS diagonally up & to the left a bit (in the direction of the "shadow") before you tighten & see if it helps.

    That and if you are zoomed in on the scope that will cause issues as well. To my knowledge hawke scope are mildot correct at 10 x zoom. Set it there and fiddle with the camera mount. I can only go to 16 x with my helix, even though it’s a 24x scope. Other wise I get the same issue. My scope is set at 12x.

    Thanks. Will play with it some more. Looking forward to trying it on some powder burners this Fall for deer, bear and elk.
