anyone here using thermal for daytime?

Postby rem700pss » Thu Sep 29, 2005 11:50 pm

I'm about to upgrade my thermal sight and was wondering if anyone else here is using thermal imaging for their weapon sighting needs both day and night. I haven't seen much more than 2x magnification which is disappointing after using the helicopter flir system which seems to zoom forever at 700 feet AGL with a stabilized lock to the searchlight so passive observation can be switched to active illumination once ground troops arrive. I guess you get some more bells for the $200K pricetag on the system. For the $10-25K pricetag on the thermal sights it just seems like they should do a little more, realizing the difficulties with thermal lenses.

Give it a few days, and we will list a multi-purpose system on www.opticshq.com that will give you up to 8.4x (with an optional lens) for a very reasonable price (as far as thermal goes)
