      Your browser does not support HTML5 video. Better than anything I have used in the Marine Corps. From my house, I could see a large heat signature in a tree 150 yards away. Turned out to be a squirrel condo when I walked up there to take a look. That was 150 yards away using the “Black Hot” color palette. I watched cars drive by 200 yards from my house with ease. Attached is a video I took and when I turn the color palette to Black Hot you can definitely see the squirrel condo. I tried to get my dog to run and fetch, but I guess she just loves me too much. LOVE this. Read more

      Your browser does not support HTML5 video. I help with a pig eradication project, and all of our work is done at night when the pigs are active. While there is an IR scope on the rifle, the scope’s 3x magnification, the on-board IR light source and the weight and bulkiness of the rifle on a tree stand, makes it far too difficult to do an area scan. The back-scatter from foliage in the foreground also makes anything further than a few yards impossible to see. This thermal monocular provides the ability to spot the pigs long before they can be heard, and that’s a huge help in providing an early warning of their approach. Because it’s passive and doesn’t need an illuminator, there’s no back-scatter from a light source. Any animal literally glows against the grey background. The Scout TK is lightweight, and the 1x magnification allows an area to be quickly and frequently scanned, easily revealing something as small as a rodent at 30 feet. I would be literally working blindly without a FLIR monocular. Attached is video clip of a pair of pigs recently spotted as they headed for a feeder at 1:30 am. Read more

      I’m impressed. If you’re not familiar with “night vision,” be aware that this isn’t like the majority of so-called night vision devices out there. First, there is no magnification. Second (and most important to understand), it is entirely passive – it does not operate on “reflected” infrared light, therefore it doesn’t need an infrared illuminator. It displays heat differences FROM objects, and therefore can be used day or night. The first day I had it, I was able to clearly see a squirrel on an oak tree about 60 feet away. The tree was fairly dark grey, and the squirrel was a very distinct white (using the standard black/white scheme where white is warmer, and black is cooler). My own preference seems to be just this method of looking at things. The more color that is added in (there are multiple color schemes), the more confusing it seems to be if you want to pick out objects). Black/white (your preference which is cool vs. warm) seems to define the best. Also be aware that this will NOT “see” through glass – such as looking into a vehicle with the windows up, or out through a window. You must have unimpeded space between you and what you’re viewing – not the fault of the device, just a function of the technology. My wife was skeptical (understatement!) that we “needed” this device, given the price. The first night turned that attitude around nicely. To be honest, we’d like to be able to “see” in the dark in the event of a power failure, particularly a longer term one. If undesirable folks are out at night with a long-term power outage, it would be nice to see without being seen – most IR night vision devices, particularly the less expensive ones, have a tell-tale dull red glow coming from the IR emitter. Therefore, someone else can spot you quite easily in the dark, due to the sudden red dot that is shining in their direction. But with this device, there’s nothing for them to see. Short of them having their own night vision capability (unlikely with neighborhood “bad guys”), you can be standing straight up in the deep shadows and never be detected – yet they will stand out brilliantly. As a test, I had my wife watch me walk well out into the yard (at least 50 feet), and then crouch down behind some bushes. While she could slightly see the bushes, she said I was clearly visible, and if she hadn’t known the bushes were there, she would not have known I’d gone behind anything (obviously the bushes have to have plenty of holes between branches or leaves, so the heat differential can be “seen” through the bushes). Just imagine wearing a glowing suit and someone is watching you through a monocular. As long as you’re not behind a solid object, they’ll be able to see the light coming through any bushes. It’s the same with the heat signature this device “sees.” The device frequently re-calibrates itself (you’ll see it in the view finder), so it adjusts to whatever the relative temperatures are regardless of time of day or temperatures of objects. Obviously, when it’s quite cold you’ll be able to see warm bodies far easier, and if temperatures are quite warm in the evening (no sun to artificially heat things up more), a body may not show up as easily due to less difference in temperatures, but it’s still highly useful. It will be surprising to see how much difference there is in temperatures the first few times you look through it – big trees are much cooler than the leaves. In fact, looking at leaves on a tree vs. the clear sky behind the leaves at night, the contrast is stunning – the leaves are quite bright white, whereas the sky is providing no real heat of its own, thus it’s black. Finally, we have a bird feeder about 50 feet or so from the back of the house. The tiny sparrows don’t show up during the day, but a few larger birds do show up, such as blue jays or woodpeckers. Obviously we can’t check that out at night, but there probably wouldn’t be much difference. And as for how much can be discerned, it is inherently fuzzy. A larger animal would definitely show up well within 100 feet, I’m sure, and be identifiable by shape. But smaller animals, even just 25-50 feet away, would be more problematic unless their shape was quite unique – the definition just isn’t good enough to reliably do identification at that distance. And obviously, trying to identify facial features would not possible at any significant distance. It’s even distorted due to color scheme presentation at a close distance (just a few feet). So if you want identify a prowler, forget it. But if you want to identify the fact that you HAVE a possible prowler, it’ll do a nice job certainly out to at least 100 feet or so (the farthest I’ve tried it). And it is of at least some use for trying to navigate around objects, if that was the only way you could do it (i.e. you had no flashlight, or it was unwise to use one), but if the difference in temperature is limited between nearby objects, you won’t see very well. This will be of limited use to us, but of potential significant value in very occasional circumstances (kind of like auto or homeowners insurance – you pay for it in case you need it and hope you never do).

      The device has a rechargeable battery that is NOT user serviceable. This means that once the battery has lived all of its charge life cycles, the device must be sent to company for repair at your expense or it becomes a paperweight. More importantly, Optics Planet is the worst company to make a purchasr from because they will delay refunding ANY money. I do NOT recommend. Read more

      Nice technology but you are better off saving up for next higher up model which is about 3x times the price with 3x times the range. With the short range, this entry-level model is not that practical for the real-life use. Read more

      I got this to use for hunting. It works well as a thermal but there are some other issues. A thermal really shines if looking for Deer right as legal shooting hours start and right as they are coming to an end. The problem with this thermal is that the time you set on it does not hold accurately. The time would lose upwards of 5 minutes a week from when I set it. So if you are looking for game right close to those legal hours, you can see the time in the thermal which if it is not accurate can cause some issues. So after spot an animal and see the time you need to get your phone out and check or look at your watch to make sure you are in legal hours, I am sure many hunters know that taking this extra time and action could cause you to miss your opportunity. The battery also discharges over time with no usage. I charged the battery full and a week later went out to use the thermal at night for raccoons and my battery was down to about 50% so I had to use it very sparingly that night. Granted these are not major issues, but when you spend $500+ on a thermal you expect the clock to work well and the battery to hold. Read more
