I am getting a chance to play with an interesting toy.  Thermal Imaging viewer and camera. Here are pics of a coyote at about 50 yds off the deck.
 
 
It should be a lot of fun once I learn to use it.

Hey I saw one of those on Ghost Hunters. Neat tools. Great for finding hot spots on houses, or just if you need to know where the local score is being grown.

My night sight in the Marines was thermal imaging. It was great for spotting game, but a bit awkward, and heavy(26 lbs I think). But you could pick up a man sized target real easy at 1000 yds plus. The pic, was only two tone though, red on black. Looks like a cool sight 3-TENS, is it weapon mounted,or stand alone?

This Imager (fluke TiR1) is light only about 3 lbs. Yet a little pricey at just under $7k. It sure is nice to have friends in Rehab and mold remediation that share their tools.

 I can see where that would come in handy for finding out where to add insulation in a house on a cold winter day!

It works very good for finding leaks in the roof. The moisture under the shingles keep it cooler and it shows exactly where the leak starts before it runs down between the felt and shingles or down the rafters..

they work so well that we have been able to tell where an arsonist came onto the property during the winter time. the tracks in the snow are warmer where the person walked.

I woke up last night and scanned the yard with the thermal. I spotted the neighbors cat near the wood pile then got a large hit in the front yard. With my Razor binoculars I could tell it was a Buck. When I stepped out on the deck he jumped the fence and moved across the back. I never realized how much game traffic traveled just beyond the light across the fence.   The focus was a little off but here he is.
 
It is amazing how sensitive this instrument is. Earlier I aimed at the moon and it read a temp of 197f on the face of the moon. Considering the 3/4 moon did not fill the sampling square and the moon is supposed to be from 225f - 275f it seems pretty close.

they are considered illegal here if you have a firearm or bow in your possession. but legal otherwise so yeah they would save a guy a ton of time for sure. our fire chief told us we probably shouldnt use ours for that, i wouldnt be a bit surprised if somebody hasnt though!
