Night shooting is always fun. It’s even more fun when you have the Pulsar Trail XP50 Thermal Imaging Sight at your disposal.

Athlon Outdoors Tactical Field Editor Aaron Barruga hit the range with the Trail XP50 at the recent Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous in Gateway, Colo. Hitting steel was a breeze, as was hitting Sonic Boom‘s exploding targets, which we had plenty of.

Pulsar Trail XP50 Features

The Pulsar Trail XP50 boasts an uncooled micro-bolometric matrix 640x480px, at 17 µm, for highly detailed imaging.

Trail models include variable magnification, up to 8x depending on model, and feature both 2x step-up and smooth, graduated magnification for a truly optimum, customized field of view.

Picture-in-picture improves accuracy by providing a magnified image of the reticle area at the top of the display. With only 1/10 of the display area reserved for PiP, the field of view remains virtually unobstructed for simultaneous PiP and FOV viewing.

The highlight of the Trail is the ability to link the device via Wi-Fi. Android and iOS-based mobile units can be linked using the free mobile application Stream Vision.

The Stream Vision software connects the device with Android/iOS mobile unit (smartphone or tablet) which enables you to receive footage in the real time mode, to distantly operate the device with your smartphone, as well to stream online the image captured by the device to Youtube.
