18 miles away according to the blurb, there's nothing to stop you making an offer :-)

I think that is the same camera that was used to film parts of the last Planet Earth series.

HD sensor with 12um pitch and 80-960mm zoom. Awesome.

Would go on my fox truck very well, only one slight problem........

Using our trusty thermal range calculator, a 12 micron core behind a 960mm lens would give a fox detection range 22 miles and a human detection range of just over 30 miles!!!!

Wonder what the possible market is for renting it out? Can't see there being a vast market. :think:

"Argo, a great 8x8"
