Thanks for that, it will negate the need to carry a click chart around. Just need some feedback on whether it will be available to fit scopes with 34mm tubes now
Just watched the YouTube clip again and my question about the price was answered there

I'd carry one and have the marks on the wheel as well, just incase like but it should also allow you to do a more detailed chart and wheel markings and who wouldn't love that!

Hello Yorkshiretea and Paul,

Yes, the display shows range and clicks, but we're adding a menu option to show both, or 1 or the other.
We'll produce 34mm mounts

I've got a question for you Derek, what that the possible increments between 50 and 55yds? I know John mentioned it possible to get two microns but that's pretty impossible with the human hand.

Hello YT,

The 2um is the resolution of the read head and encoder strip, not just between 50-55.
This is not very relevant as what is important is the accuracy of the displayed range reading relating to the wheel position.

For example, a quartz watch oscillates at about 32Khz, but only has a second hand - it's the accuracy of time that is important.
So we have the display read in 0.1 yard increments (or meters) from min range 8 to 55+.

A 10um or 100um etc resolution read head would also be suitable if one was available at the right price and spec. The higer resolution sensor was actualy a lower cost at a better current / voltage spec

So, the smallest increment is 0.1yrd or 91.44mm? Is it actually possible by hand to hit 50.1, 50.2, 50.3 etc repeatably?

John was testing the repeatability of his ranging and was surprised at the results
There is no cost penalty or technical reason why not to have 0.1 resolution so why not.
There are other reasons why the system needs to work to this level.

It also future proofs the hardware, we don't want to be the limiting factor as scopes get better for example.

As I said, the reason for the 0.1yard or meters readout is to future proof the equipment and not to limit skilled shooters that may be able to reach this level.
