It's called 'extreming'. You need an adapter and a fixed zoom T4 type camera lens (I think it's T4, it might be P4 or another 4!) 

You pop off the 4 screw covers,undo the lens locking screws, twist off the factory lens, screw in the adaptor, screw on the new lens and you've got super duper clarity when combined with a decent illuminator. Plus you can use it properly in day light. It's not hard to do. You can go for and size lense you want. I think I settled on 55mm or something when I did it. Tried 105mm but the field of view was too narrow. Have a look on Facebook for the Yukon extreming group.
