Leupold LTO Tracker thermal monocular

Post by ucanthide » 19 Feb 2018, 22:42

Fellas,

Has anyone any first hand experience of this device? the youtube videos look quite good for what it is. The manufacturer, Leupold, are a well known American company making rifle scopes etc. I contacted them (their technical department) to ask what the pixel pitch was of the pixels in the LTO's detector and the response was that they didnt know...? This made me start to think it may well be made abroad, i.e China..otherwise why would the 'manufacturer' not know this essential detail?

Look forward to any responses.

Steve,

thanks for the advice, I mean not withstanding the fact the display is very bright, how does it perform for a budget thermal imager?

It's a budget thermal imager - it doesn't perform worth a s**t compared to proper thermal imager.
It uses a 206x156 sensor and a 240x204 display - that spec gets you a thermal imager that will just about see foxes or rabbits at the end of your garden
Honestly, if you're thinking about getting a thermal imager, don't waste your money on one of these - keep saving and buy a Pulsar Helion XQ38F, or even a Pulsar quantum Lite XQ23V

Cheers

Bruce,

Thanks for that. I saw a few youtube videos that show it detecting a man at about 150+m, which I thought was quite good for the price. I wouldnt compare it to a pulsar Helion, that is a much higher spec but also 4 x the price of the Leupold. Have you yourself used the Leupold?

Don't go there.................

Cant ID anything with one, I'm just pleased I managed to get a full refund.

Leupold got rid of stock in America by giving them away when you brought one of their top end scopes.

The cheapest usable thermal spotter is the Pulsar Quantum lite XQ23V list price is £1200 but you should be able to get 10% discount from places like Blackwood outdoors.

Bruce,

Thanks again, you're right, that pulsar lite looks very reasonable. I was even considering spending a bit more and maybe getting a Microcam3 from Thermoteknix, are you familiar with them?
