Alpha Master chronograph
Shooting Chrony Alpha Master chronograph has a control box with display that separates from the skyscreens by 18 feet. These chronographs are shown with their light diffusers attached, but I don’t use them. Read why in the report.

This report covers:

  • What about the false triggering of the skyscreen?
  • Start screen — stop screen
  • Atomic blast wave
  • The solution to false triggering
  • How I use the new chronograph
  • Battery operated
  • Light diffusers
  • Summary

For range safety rules, I could not get closer to the chronograph. So, I was pointing the airgun to shoot over the skyscreens. read more
