Re: [sct-user] Re: why don't we use rifle scopes as finders?
- And then people can keep their anti-gun political bullshit out of the thread
and stay on topic. Great idea, don't ya think?
Anyway, using a riflescope seems to be a fabulous idea! Most "good" scopes
use a 1" barrel which could be utilized by most finder mounts. Riflescopes
also offer a plethora of crosshair and dot types, variable magnifications,
long eye relief and fine alignment adjustments.

Electronics, Long's Drugstore, etc. Available stock comes and
goes and DP is not the only type of system like this. One could
probably cobble-up a [better?] system at even lower cost from
components at hardware stores.
The whole idea is to detect anything inwards-bound to one's viewing
area and either alert you and/or via a siren-like alarm cause the
whatever to scurry away.
