    A short video of rats shooting at one of the farms with my HW100T and H&N Baracuda 15.

    As always, very well shot, and very informative. I am very impressed with the performance of your Pard.

    @idaho_varminter.  Thank you for your support. I definitely prefer the ease of usage of the Pard008P LRF as compared to the Pard007S and the NewLeaf NV100 scope mounting system.  The 008 is easier and faster to focus especially with the "nob" that I DIY on the focus ring.  The FOV is a lot wider and the clarity is very good especially when I have two IR850 attached to my HW100T.

    @broay73.  Thank you for watching.

    @max115 Well produced video as always.The video quality and clarity of the 008 are great! I guess the dual torches really come into play at longer distances. I hadn't realized that you had been using a knob to focus. I thought that the unit had some sort of auto focus feature. If you've used your 008 during the daytime, is keeping moving quarry in focus as challenging in the daytime as it is at night? Would you mind showing the DIY focus ring knob or discussing it some?

    @ezana4ce.  Thank you. The DIY "knob" was a battery charger end that I cut off from my old Motorola phone charger.  Quite simple to do actually.  I flatten the USB charging end and then slip it between the Pard focus ring and tighten it down.  It is easy to use with my left index finger to move the "knob" up and down to focus quickly.  The focus is the same for day and night as long as you get the target in the scope view.  I often turn the wrong direction for focusing but that can be quickly fixed by going the opposite direction to keep the target in focus.  Please watch this episode where I showed the "knob".

    @max115 Ok I see it. That’s pretty clever. Do you ever find that you need more travel on your focus knob using your DIY throw lever? The bit about the misalignment was unexpected. I wouldn’t have thought to look at that. What exactly causes this? Is something bent? How do the dovetail to picatinny adapters help correct the issue?

    @ezana4ce.  No. the focus travel is actually enough for my range.  The misalignment was due to the size of my HW100 dovetail, I guess it is narrower for the Pard unit.  But the adaptors fixed the problem and my crosshair is in line to my barrel now.

    @max115 Thank you for the link to the other video and the explanation.
