FLIR ThermoSight R-Series

Night vision technology has taken off in recent years with several manufacturers getting in on the game. The result has been night vision systems that have increasingly been light on the pocketbook. Thermal-detecting optics have always been better option, allowing better game detection, even on the darkest nights. But the price on such units has been astronomical. Now, FLIR has come out with a top-of-the-line thermal scope for the consumer market that, price-wise, falls in line with traditional high-end night vision technology. The FLIR ThermoSight R-Series features a compact design, simple one-handed four-button operation, up to 16X magnification (depending upon the model), three reticle settings and six different detection palettes. (MSRP: $3,500-$9,000; www.flir.com)
