I would try 3D Hubs or another printing service bureau if you won't want to invest in a 3D printer. However 3D printers are getting cheaper and better every year and it's a terrific skill set to learn!

Sorry-no mounts yet. It's intended for just handheld use for now. I can't make any promises for mounts anytime soon.
That's great to hear. I actually had one lying around from an older project and managed to try it out for myself and I really like it. It's far more comfortable than the NinjaFlex printed eye cup and much less of a hassle than printing one. However while it's still possible to seat it, it's extremely difficult to stretch the part over the retaining collar. I might design and upload an alternate collar to make mounting the modified rubber eye cups a little easier.

One more thing is you could attempt to use serial to communicate to an LCD using a micro controller. The problem with this is the added difficulty in processing the frames, lower frame rate, difficulty in outputting or input video, and possible latency in the video that may cause nausea from looking around.http://www.arducam.com/https://www.amazon.com/Arducam-Megapixels-OV7670-6...

If you're serious about range, I would recommend checking out my instructable on building a starlight scope with a cascade image intensifier tube:https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Cascade-Night...
Entry level 3D printers are continuing to decrease in cost every year as new models are released and there are also several good printing services out there that might be a better option for you. 3DHubs might be one to consider: https://www.3dhubs.com/Since there's a lot of folks who don't own a printer, I added this information to the 3D printing step so others can learn more about other options if they want to build an OpenScope. :)
The visibility depends on how much IR light reflects back into the camera, since the OpenScope has no light amplification ability like an image intensifier tube and relies completely on reflected IR to see. If you had a massive IR torch or spotlight (or a regular spotlight with an IR filter), you could see much further.Also at 1/4 mile away, you will not have very much clarity (even in the daytime) without a lens with a tighter field of view/higher magnification.
That would be pretty tough to do without the ability to make a custom enclosure. This project is based off of one of my older night vision instructables where I used ABS project boxes for the enclosure. It has no eyepiece however.https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Infrared-Nigh...^THAT instructable was based off of a project in a book, 101 Spy Gadgets for the Evil Genius and they used a VHS CRT viewfinder instead of a TFT and eyepiece lens.http://www.lucidscience.com/pro-night%20vision%20v...

Yep! The CCTV camera I hooked up to the OpenScope has that capability as well. I think there's even movement detection features in it, but I was having trouble accessing the window because a few of the buttons weren't working well. I opted to reset the camera and show the menu instead.
Thanks for the feedback. I'm interested in the TV Out Arduino capability you mentioned. I figured that was for doing only the text and graphics on an NTSC display through the composite, but are you saying there's a way to combine both the TV Out graphics and the video signal together?As for the airsoft stuff, I totally agree. I could publish a version of the OpenScope in the future with mounting capability for Picatinny rail or a J-Arm for helmet mounting, but I can't make any promises. It would require more thorough research into federal night vision export restrictions due to the mounting capability from the 3D printing files, since some of that stuff is controlled. For the time being, I'm more comfortable publishing the OpenScope as a general purpose optic.For the power, I've played ...see more »Thanks for the feedback.

I might experiment with it again in the future.
No video yet, but it would be simple for me to do if I had a composite video recorder. Or I could just use my phone. Biggest delay is I would want to make a YouTube channel for it before trying to upload anything. I'll certainly do video eventually. :)
