Iris240/241 NightSpotter Handheld Thermal Scope // $2,755.00

You keep a weather eye on the horizon during the day, but let’s face it, that job is more difficult once the sun goes down. The NightSpotter Hand Held Scope from Iris Innovations takes night vision to a whole new level. Its extreme sensitivity to heat radiation— processing incredibly low temperature differences starting at 50 meter-Kelvin — allows it to detect hidden objects, channel markers, debris, and even humans in man-over-board searches in crisp, high resolution video images, all without an external light source.

Nightspotter 241This compact, lightweight beacon is complete with adjustable focus settings, up to 4x digital zoom, and contains a built-in high-power LED torch, a composite video output, and adjustable brightness controls with white-hot, black-hot, and red-hot palate functions. The best part? You could say the NightSpotter is semi-aquatic – take it out to spot wildlife or bring it home to check your pipes or roof for leaks. The portable night vision scope comes in its own neoprene pouch, but the waterproof NightSpotter Rugged Equipment Case is also available for those wanting a little more protection.

It’s compact and extremely tough with custom nooks for NightSpotter accessories – i.e. battery chargers, cables, adapters and even documents. Check boat-cameras.com for your local dealer, listed on Amazon for $2,755.
